Kindles are finally here in Australia! Free shipping.
I have friends with Kindles and they LOVE them. They are avid readers and use them every day. They feel like they are saving the planet (or at least the tres!!) and books are so much cheaper when purchased electronically. The way that the screens use battery (or should I say don't use battery) is incredible giving them months between recharges. They both have got personalised kindle leather covers (which both protects them and makes them look even better)
These will be available from BigW and Dick Smith from the 29th August but you can preorder yours now.
