I too have a kindle, it was a Xmas pressie and although I loved holding a real book, I don't expect I will be buying another one unless it breaks! They are no problem in the sun, just look like a normal book but much lighter to hold the shade the sun!
Just downloaded The House of Dreams and Dust although disappointed I couldn't get Shantaram or The Greek for Love on kindle but there are loads to choose from and if you shop wisely very cheap too!

Just got Its All Greek To Me for my kindle from Amazon, my husband bought the book last year and thought it was brilliant, very funny, but I didnt have the chance to read it and he passed it on to someone else!

Hubby bought me a Kindle for my birthday and although I am a "book" person I am totally converted. The only problem I can foresee is that Ian and I normally take books on holiday that we can both read, and as we both read at the same time, this might pose a problem with a Kindle lol!!! However, he has said that he will take just one book and exchange it at one of the travel offices when we get there (just as well as there is no way he is getting his hand on my Kindle lol)
I currently have 44 books downloaded ready for me to read. That should keep even ME quiet for a bit!!!

My daughter has a Kindle and I have read a book on it and am also converted so am going to buy one for my holiday(s) . It will never replace books for me, but there are advantages.
Normally I take about 8/9 books for a two week holiday on the basis that I read one in two days usually and there are always a couple that don't 'gel'. I always end up leaving them behind as I need the room in my case for goodies I have bought on holiday so a terrible waste of money really.
The Kindle is very light and easy, specially when you are lying down, and as others have said it is great in the sun.

Just found out another advantage with the KIndle. I switched mine off before we flew out on 19th April and have only just switched it back on tonight expecting to have to recharge it before reading. No, it has kept the full battery charge. I am really impressed!
Yes, that's what made me think that the Kindle too would need recharging. Very nice surprise.
Anyway, back on topic, I have just found my copy of The Corfu Trilogy by Gerald Durrell so have just started reading that again for the umpteenth time.
This year I am having a complete change of style. Instead of taking Corfu/Greece related books I will be taking a selection of Val McDiarmid crime thrillers. Nothing like a good, gory read before bed! LOL!
Other years as a change to the Greek books I like reading autobiographies...Dawn French, Alan Titchmarsh, Jo Brand and especially Jonathan Ross which was hilarious.
