I gave up. I have two Amazon Kindles already, the first generation as well as the new generation Amazon Kindle. I have bought more than 300 books on these, and when you add the books that I bougth on my Sony Reader device (which I no longer use), we are talking about considerable amount of literature. The reasoning of this purchase is simple: I use the device every day and some of the books I read are large text books and the larger screen is better for that. Also, I will discontinue getting my Wall Street Journal as paper and go with the Kindle version. These reasons are how I “sold” it to myself and later this afternoon the device will be in my hands. Sweet.
