I received my Kindle for Christmas in 2010. I can't do anything online with it, but that is ok with me, I only wanted one to read on. I have a desktop computer, and that is enough for me as far as an online connection goes. I do not have Wi-fi, so I have to download books to my Kindle using the USB cord to connect the Kindle to my computer. A friend set up shortcuts for me on my computer so it's really easy.

Even though I love my Kindle, I still read paperbacks and hardcovers also; I don't have a preference, I love reading in any form!

I got the Kindle Fire HD last year for Christmas and love it, although I still prefer to read real, physical books. I have TONS of books available in Kindle format if anyone is looking for any, I can send them, just message me.

My partner and I each own an original Kindle. I also own an mp3 player (Sansa Fuze) which has five books on it. And finally, I have three books from the library that I'm reading. Which I use depends on my mood. Right now I'm reading "real" books.

Seeing how close you are to the next size down is a great motivator. Also, put on an article of clothing that you wore when you first started your weight loss journey and that will help you see how far you have come!

It is different from the Fire which is a tablet. the e-ink Kindle is just a reading device and not a fully functioning computer.

Is an e-ink kindle different from any other Kindle?

Slowly and surely wins the race.

I have had five Kindles - from the second generation on (each year). My husband has the second generation one. I am using the new Paperwhite. I love them.
