Newbie in Mississippi

Recently received a Kindle 3 as an early Christmas present from my wife. She got me the 3G model and placed it in a cover with light. I love it. Being retired, I don't have a very large budget for eBooks, so I am especially interested in free or extreme bargain books. I purchased the title "Free Kindle Books and How to Find Them" for $0.99. That book led me to MobileRead. Looking forward to lurking in the forums to learn to utilize my Kindle to the fullest.

If you're on a budget, I'd exchange the Kindle for a reader that can borrow/download books from the library. You still have access to almost all of the free books that Kindle offers, but you'll also have more options if one copy is cleaner or has a better font than another. Project Guttenberg has a ton of free books that are available to everyone.

Borrowing eBooks was one of the points I considered. Unfortunately, our local library system (13 branches) has NO fiction eBooks and I was told that with budgetary constraints there are no planned eBook purchases in the next couple of years. With that fact taking the whole ePub format issue off the table off the table, Kindle was my "hands-down" choice as the reader that most completely matched my criteria for a reader. After using it for two weeks, I am extremely pleased with the Kindle.
