The Kindle is aesthetically pleasing, feels nice to hold in one or two hands and has a sturdy build. The it's operating system is very well thought out and includes really good features that I didn't expect when buying. (eg I picked a book up after a while and forgot who a character was. I then held down on their name for a second and a pop up box showed me that characters introductory paragraph.) The store has an enormous selection of books, and has some great prices such as the complete Sherlock Holmes for $0.99. All in all I have very much enjoyed my time with the Kindle and think its a very well designed device both physically and digitally.
