Would YOU buy a Kindle1 as a Backup Reader?

I know the reasons why I'm thinking about one, which is simply this: I want to put a number of PD titles (from here and elsewhere, in addition to all those DRM-free titles I purchased from Fictionwise and put them on the Kindle 1.

I want to reserve my Kindle 2 for the literary works I enjoy.

Or another way to put it: I want to keep Zombies and those pesky dead Cats [uggh! ) from destroying the artistic integrity of literary fiction.

That's a new one

I can't answer for the Kindle, but that's why I use an SD card for some of the content on my Sony - for the "zombies" and the "dead cats"....

Yes, of course!

I thoroughly enjoy the jetBook, but I'm missing chapter links. Hopefully, the programming Gods are fast at work on solving this issue.

I see. Well, the K1's are selling at a good price, have high capacity via SD card and will play nice with your K2. Go for it!

I definitely would buy K1 as a backup reader.
As soon as the price falls under 35 Euro here in my country.

I did just that too - kept my K1 as a backup reader to both my K2 and DX - I now realize that I can NEVER be without a functional ereader! And yes, I tend to keep my PD stuff on the K1 - b/c of the SD card storage. The rest of my library I can always download again from Amazon.

I know what you mean. It doesn't necessarily have to be a Kindle for me, but I'd be lost without a reader of some sort.

That's why I'm asking, as they're relatively inexpensive right now.

I get tempted to have an extra reader for lending books but since I only have Kindles, I'd probably get something that handled ePub & PDF for quick access to library books without converting. I don't really see the need to have more than one reader for myself unless the other was a large format reader for my work stuff.

Don, it seems to me that buying a K1 is simply buying outdated technology. Why bother? If you can't make do with one of the devices you already own for backup, then why not invest in a large portable hard drive or even a thumb drive (which are very inexpensive these days) as backup storage devices and then when you get the urge to reread a book where links are important, just reload it onto your favorite device.

I store my backup books on a local hard drive in their own directory, which directory gets backed up daily to my NAS drive (a non-internal backup hard drive setup for my home network) and to my off-site, remote backup which is Carbonite.

If you have both a laptop and a desktop, you could also sync your two computers to let them each act as a backup to the other.
