I too enjoyed the Millennium Trilogy on my Kindle and looking forward to the film coming out at Xmas (The girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
I have found the kindle has saved me a lot of money on book purchases because they are invariably discounted significantly from published prices.
My wife had to consider buying books whilst in Sidari because I wouldn't share my Kindle and they were charging well over the published prices and often were well thumbed too. In the end she re-read one of her books and kept herself going until we got back home.
I will be buying her a kindle to go back to Corfu with in October

Why not head for your local bookstore and have a good browse - that's half the thrill of buying books. Picking an author you know and like would be a great help as there's nothing worse than starting what you think will be a good read only to find you don't really enjoy the writer's style, or subject for that matter.
If you're really stuck when you get here, there are table sales here where you can pick up second-hand books for literally pennies.
I've just bought an Anne Zouroudi, must read it before we go though, then I can decide whether to buy more. For the past two years I've read a Mystery Man crime book by Bateman and have just ordered Dr Yes for this year. I usually take about 6-8 books, usually crime/ thrillers/ spies but also top up my ipod with audiobooks - Francis Durbridge Paul Temple series are my faves or a Ruth Rendell. Would take the Millenium Trilogy but they are too big so watched The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night, watching the other tonight. Might be persuaded to get Kindle to get over the weight problem!!
