Knitgrrl Shannon Okey posts about her new Kindle and her crafty ideas brewing for the portable reading device. I recently got one after a crafty friend showed me hers at Maker Faire. I have to say I love the portability and the ease of reading. So how many of you have Kindles out there? Feel free to leave a comment to this post so we can keep track! Gotta love that the Kindle will let you keep up with what’s new on the CRAFT blog too!

I don’t have a Kindle – but I also didn’t realize you could read blogs with it. Somehow that makes it something I really want now. LOL
The Kindle is great! I’ve been thinking of ways to mod my case since the day I got it. If there are any other crafters out there doing this (or to their Sony Reader case), let’s start a flickr group!
I just got my Kindle two weeks ago and I’m loving it.
I have one and I love it. I convert PDF knitting patterns to the Kindle format so I can carry a bunch with me if I want.
You can read SOME blogs with it. Check the Kindle Store before you buy based on that!
I’ve got one & have been trying to come up with a new cover…something like a waterproof sleeve since I prefer to read without the cover attached. You can set up the browser with Google Reader to get free blog reading.
I love love love my Kindle. I can read while I knit (using the secret auto-page turn feature- alt+sero to turn on, alt+1 to start, alt+2 to turn off- turns page every 10 seconds) get caught up on blogs and RSS feeds, upload knitting patterns, even browse the internet if I want to. I also love that I can instantly be given the definition while I’m reading a book, and it remembers what page I left off on any book I’ve got. Wonderful.
