I'm also fairly sure I don't want to read on a lit display. E-Ink is king in that regard.

I'll stick with the Wi-Fi for reading books, and if I wanted a tablet I'd go for an ipad or the Samsung Galaxy tablet.

Yeah...I get what you're saying. I was saying the same thing when the Kindle Fire was released. But, now I am looking how they are incorporating some aspects of reading that I enjoy (reviewing books, chatting with other people about them online - because no one I know personally reads the same stuff as me, and recommending reads/chatting on facebook about books). That's a huge marketing feature for someone like me. BUT - there's still the backlit screen to contend with...

I like the size and I like the simplicity (I don't need a camera, or any superfast processor for games), but will I actually use this to read - or will I just d*ck around on it and still use my Kobo WiFi to read?
