That's how it goes around here. I've bought 3 e readers and my husband and 2 oldest daughters now have them and I have my Kindle. I have no interest in buying any more because our family's reading needs are met.
I understand the need for a company to keep their models current and changing, because, well, that's the business, but to just leap on a gimmick is something we cannot afford., but it is good to know that a few years down the road, should the need arise, there will be different choices.
