I probably need two Kindles

I ordered a DX. But I also like the compactness of the K2.

I ordered the DX because...
- Being in my sixties, my eyes will not be improving.
- Can use large fonts without limiting to 10 lines per page
- Fewer page clicks
- Reading blogs, newspapers and magazines

I like the smaller K2 because...
- I can go walking with it
- Easier to hold while reading
- Less obtrusive

Am I accurate with these differences and concerns? What other pros/cons comparing of each of these units am I missing?

I really can't afford both.

I have both. I bought my DX after I already had a K2. I thought I would use both, but I have not touched the K2 since my DX arrived.

I have both. I got my DX first. Then i ordered a K2 cause the DX is not "mobile" enough for me to carry aroung and read at the cafe or on the train.

Then i had to go back to my DX because my wife discovered the advantages of ebook reading

But if i leave the house i still try to grab the K2 or even get my old Cybook with me although i still have the DX. The DX is simply much to bulky for me on the road but i LOVE it sitting in my chair at home :-)
