Earky in the paper book/e-reader debate, I straddled the fence.  The Kindle was great for waiting in doctors' offices. and the paper bookds would always live on my shelves and be my preference at home/  Then came corneal dystrophy (surface connra cells die in clump and float on thr eye causing things liike double vision and what I call leaping paragraphs; the last paragraph on the page jumps up and covers the paragraph I'm trying to read).  My Kindle then became one of three ways I can still read.  I can play cassettes or CD/s, and the library of Congress privi des free aydui books and magazines (which you return at their cost).  I got a Kinfle Keyboard a while back and then learned that a friend is losing his vision so I sent him my old Kindle.  He didn't care what bersion hde had; he only cared that he could read again.  So if you upgrade, consier that, please.  Give the old one to a visually handicapped person and give them back the plesaure of reading through the speevh feature.

Definitely...because whenever ereaders go on reading the books, they'll definitely remember that this is a gift from someone special....
