I love libraries and book stores, but I'm afraid my Kindle has replaced books in my life. Ah, progress!

Took me 2 years but I now prefer reading on my iPad to a real book. I wondered if I ever would but it is so handy that I kept reading on it, now it is second nature.

I can have hundreds and hundreds of books with less than a pound of weight with my Kindle. Thom liked it so much too that he got one for himself. We linked them under one account so we could each read all the books that we both have bought without any possible "borrowing" problems.

Ah yes modern technology. Since I am Off Grid I have no wifi access so no Kindle or I-pad for me for quite some time.

How much are new releases on a Kindle?

Almost all the books I have gotten on the Kindle have been free. I don't think I paid more than $10 for any of the others that I have gotten but then I read sci-fi or sci-fi fantasy or history.
Here are some sites for free books:
Internet Archive: Digital Library of Free Books, Movies, Music & Wayback Machine
Free Kindle Books offers Free Classic E-Books in Kindle-compatible MOBI and PRC formats
Free Kindle Books, Amazon Kindle Book, Amazon.com Books | Kindle Review - Kindle Fire Review, Kindle Fire HD Review

Tons of free books for any e-reader, lots of recent books as well. We frequently camp where there is no Internet but I still have 500 books with me!

With my Nook I can check books out of our local library. It doesn't matter if we are in Texas or Kansas as long as we have an internet connection. The DW and I are big readers and the MH was filling up with books so we decided we needed an e-reader. Once I found out how to keep my thumbs off the screen, it doesn't rip through a bunch of pages anymore. If we are boondocking, we go to a McDonalds or any other public WiFi and get new books and turn the old ones in. I read a regular book the other day and the bookmark was PITA to keep up with. When you get used to an e-reader it's not convenient to read a book.

my wife and I both have the Kindle Fire and I don't use the lap top anymore. But when it comes to reading we both like the older Kindle better for reading.

Ditto. I like my trusty old Kindle for reading. It's lightweight and the non-glare screen is easiest on my eyes.

I can always increase the size of the type so I can read in the evening when the eyes are tired.

Yep, even the original Kindle will allow for text size adjustment. I don't have a problem with font size, but I do get "tired eyes" from a screen with glare. We own tablets but I much prefer the old Kindle when I read.

Lisa, as long as you have access to books, it's all good.
