I still like Moon + to read on over the Kindle App on the KFHD. Since KFHD doesn't have bells and whistles like the PW (X-ray). I love Moon + No Xray, but dropbox can be used, and so many different settings. But it is good to read from, not sure the bigger KFHD is what I would get, I thought about it, but have adjusted to the 7". I too loved the DX, but the print seems to be bigger on the PW, KFHD, SGP5, and touch page turning is faster and easier than clicking for me. The bigger KFHD will weigh more of course.

Your mileage may vary, lol, everybody is different. I am reading 3 books again, and one audiobook. I love it.
I arrive on the 9th of Jan - but will be exhausted after a 22hr+ journey! I'll probably start to play with it on the 10th. Maybe I can charge it before (overnight) so it is nice and fresh. Lots more posts at that point!

Question: What audiobook and music apps(s) do you recommend for the SGP5 (basic mp3 files)? I read about Mort Player (?). Not including Overdrive or Audible - since I won't really be able to use them.

I am making a list of apps to download so I can get the device(s) setup in the US. Loooong list!

Still a bit of a muddle on the KFHD, although I've decided against another ereader (PW). I setup a 7" KFHD for a friend so I had it to play with for 3 weeks, and loved the screen/speakers. The GUI didn't bug me and I could play most everything I needed to - so that was all good. I just found the 7" too small for reading papers, playing online Bridge, magazines and most webpages. All that page moving around gave me a headache. I don't mind holding the DX at 9.7" - I just prop it up. I do find my husband's 11.6" Sony to be quite large and bulky, but OK for sometime use. I thought that 9" might be "just right"

Figure I'd use it for browsing, online Bridge (the 7" doesn't have enough screen size) and occasional magazine/paper reading. Amazon has removed the free 2-day delivery option now (and some of the other KFHD product discounts), so I may have to decide sooner. Or not at all.

If it is this much of a decision, I should probably just wait for the next generation!

PS - I haven't sewn much lately, basically some crafts for charity bazaars. I am trying to use my (huge! - I am in a textile-producing city, Thessaloniki) fabric stash now to make casual clothes since I am now retired. Perhaps I should get a new serger in the US rather than the KFHD.
