I just sold another one. This time a woman has decided to purchase one for her sister as a birthday gift. The sister is a literary agent and reads a lot for work and for personal enjoyment. She mentioned how her sister travels a lot with huge manuscripts. I suggested that *if* her sister could get the books in an electronic format they could be sent directly to her Kindle.
The woman and her sister had already been looking at the Kindle online. Seeing mine in person give her that extra nudge to buy it. She's thinking about purchasing one for herself as well.
I was thinking the same thing recently. Although, benefits aside, I've become a serious evangalist for the Kindle. I especially love the ability to search Wikipedia when I come across something I want to research a little further. I don't even watch movies without the IMDB handy, because I always find something I need to look up. So, the Kindle has become my read and research tool all in a lovely package.
