How easy is it to thumb the pages? I know on my phone I sometimes double turn a page or two.
Turning the page is responsive. I've never accidentally turned multiple pages except when I'm reading and falling asleep. If you hold your finger it intentionally turns multiple pages.

I love the touch ereaders. I think it's exciting that now all the major brands are offering them. Phone screens seem more sensitive and tiny. I'm sure I've changed the page on my iPhone when I didn't mean to.

That is good to know I have a K4 Touch on Pre-Order but I am going to cancel it if my K4 will do me okay and get a T1 instead. I don't need 3 Kindles. It would be nice to have a epub reader that I like and would make less work on library books especially being able to download directly.

I am digging the Library support. They pretty much nailed the end-to-end experience. I haven't yet found a reason to access the library from another device except to get a library card.

The direct library support is great! I am fortunate to have access to a fantastic e-library and therefore borrow many library books. That was the other reason that I got the T1. I really like having both Kindle and EPUB readers. It just makes it easy and simple to get what I want when I want it.

I have access to a great library and get most of my agency books through it. Well my K4 is here and it looks like I will be getting a T1 My K4 screen is dark gray and the text not as black as my K3. for $79 though I will keep it.

Mine is out for delivery on the Fedex truck, and it just so happens I'm working from home today!

A phone call to Fedex confirms delivery today for both packages, reader and cover.

the library feature is really nice, checked out my first book last night, 14 days to read it. Curious though that the hardcover edition they sell at amazon is 336 pages and this download i got from the library is 251 pages....and i'm using a larger font. Actually changing the font size doesn't change the page count. Would think it would change it some

Epub uses a standard 'page' of 1024 characters. It's not dependent on device, font, screen size, or anything else. Every page in every epub is the same size.

But i would think a 336 page book wouldn't be reduced to 251 pages considering the comparable size of the screen versus a hardback page...most larger books that i've read normally end up having more pages via ebook format.
