But I'll be prepared if I ever want to!
I am having a wonderful time with it. Is surprisingly useful, even in Greece where public WiFi is not common . And all the syncing between devices is convenient.
I read on mine all the time. It fits easily in my pocket and being back lit means I can easily see when I'm on the T underground. When I'm waiting for my laundry to finish I'm reading and listening to my music at the same time.
It's a terrific little device, don't let others convince you that it doesn't make a good reader simply because they prefer not to use it as such.
There are plenty of us on here who have no problems reading on a backlit device.
