It was designed for the most part to be a single-use tool. It does one thing and does it exceedingly well. I have yet to find a use for it other than reading. It certainly doesn't work for pounding nails or anything like that. :p

Read books mostly although you can buy magazine and newspaper subscriptions. So far I'm about 1/2 way through my first Kindle book and think it's okay. I prefer audiobooks but sometimes it's nice to read and listen to the stereo.

why not just get a book and read it???

Carrying 100 books (most greater than $12 for paperback, more for hardback)

versus

Carrying an 8 oz device storing 3000 books (some free, most $9 or less)


you choose...

I have 112 books on my Nook; and am at less than 4% capacity. I haven't spent a dime on them either.

Some of the best literature the human species has ever produced is available for free:
