Thought the Kindle wasn't for me. I like obscure books. Just read "Joseph Wolff, Mission to Bokhara" written in the 1850's. A new copy of the book was $43, and it looked like it was handmade, because it's been out of print for 90 years. Not only is it available on Kindle (which I thought, "never in a million years"), it was also free! I went from "no way" to, "sign me up" in 1 minute.
