If you've never had a Kindle before, why should you get one? Now, which model is your personal choice; I have already explained why I love this one.Amazon has millions upon millions of books that are able to be purchased and downloaded to the device.I personally do not read in bed with the lights off -- I fall asleep while reading like that.However if you are a frequent bed-time reader, you will want to get the Paperwhite, Voyager, or Oasis models.A good fourth of those available are free, and another good chunk are or less.
That being said, this version of Kindle does seem quite fragile, as mentioned before, so when I carry it with me in my purse, I am covering it with a knit beanie hat for now.
Kindle has the ability to store thousands of books, so you shouldn't have to worry about running out of storage.
If you do, however, the overflow can be stored on Amazon's Cloud service, so you never have to worry about giving up any of your old favorites.
More and more titles become available for Kindle every day -- when I got my original 2nd Gen Kindle nine years ago, the Harry Potter series was unavailable to Kindle. The Half-Blood Prince is the first book I downloaded for my new Kindle, since that is where I am at in the series right now, and I could not be happier.
They even preserved the chapter illustrations for the e-reader format.
