The PC Kindle software program is pretty cool, just not easy to find legal kindle versions for the kindle PC version, HOWEVER It's in color, well... the first openeing page of the book i s in color on the pc version, Kindle is shades of grey and i would never buy one even if i had bill gates income, just my hard-headedness and the spoiled attitude i got from all the years enjoying such a vast software world the pc has to offer, An IPAD or IPHONE You say? Hmmmm now yes i would buy one of them, but how would i afford the apps for them LOL Man apple is terrible about app pricing, or maybe i could jailbreak it lol just kidding, that's illegal and besides i don't have the money for either of them anyway, besides my pc is enough...

Stan, what if you want to kick back on the couch with a good book? I used to enjoy using the laptop on the couch but that was for programming. Would your use a laptop to read a 200 page book of fiction or read a book for pleasure on you pc?

@Stan, laptops and iPads get too hot to curl up in bed with for long periods of time. I like my Kindle's eInk screen, which, even though it's only in black and white, is very crisp and clear, and very similar to reading actual paper. It also saves me on battery life! My Kindle doesn't get hot, and I can lie down to read, and it's way cheaper than an iPad or iPhone.

Note: jailbreaking your iPhone isn't illegal, but it will void your warranty.
