Finally an eBook reader I can really get behind: Amazon Kindle

It's lightweight, easy to use, connected, readable in any light where you can read a regular book.  I'd be happier if it were a little bit more affordable, but hopefully that will come over time.  I suspect without proof that the life-time data subscription has to be a big chunk of the cost, and possibly the cots for what I believe is the underlying patent, originally owned by MIT.  I read about this patent and research several years ago, and believed it to be the most likely path forward for readable ebooks.
