My faithful old Kindle DX met an untimely demise the other day when my second daughter dropped it. Well, I'd had it for most of three years, so maybe it wasn't all that untimely. Anyway, I meant to buy a new one soon, but had planned to wait for the newest model, which should be out shortly. Alas, the destruction of my DX moved my timetable forward a bit. So I went to Best Buy today and bought myself a nice new Kindle Touch. So far I really like it. It's a lot lighter than my old Kindles (even the smaller ones, which were the Kindle 2 model), and the touch screen is very responsive. Seems like a good little reader!
