Anyone have an Amazon Kindle?

My father is 81 and has some eyesight problelms. He loves to read and misses reading the Bible, but can't read small print anymore. I was wondering if anyone has a Kindle and what they think of it. I believe you can adjust the size of the text you see??? and there is also a "read to me" feature that could be usefull as well.

let me know what your experience with it is.

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

I bought my wife one and they're inseperable. She loves it!!! Highly recommended. I think LArry has a distributorship...oh wait, he lost that too.

I've got one; I dig it, especially because I travel a lot and I don't have to carry around a bunch of books. It also fits in the seat back pocket on the airlines.
