    Anyone debating over using their iphone for ebooks versus buying the Kindle should read this review. I’ve been an avid ebook fan for the last ten years. I started with a Palm pilot, upgraded to several different pocket pc’s, tried the ereader app on the blackberry, and have recently been using ereader and Stanza on the iPhone. I decided to buy the Kindle because I didn’t find many reviews helpful and people said you had to see it to believe it or see how much better it was. I assure you that I do not have any regrets. The display is incredible, although the operating system is a little clunky, but once you start reading your first book — you really come to appreciate it. The screen is easy on the eyes, easy to learn, easy to turn pages, and the device is more comfortable than a real book or trying to hold the iphone. I’ve owned the Kindle for about four days and have already gone through over 30 books. I’ve been able to download all the reference books I need for my work, and appreciate not having to be connected online to read them, or carry heavy books around. I may be canceling my Safari Bookshelf account soon. Amazon just released the new Kindle app for the iphone which is great also, because it synchronizes the two devices. I forgot the kindle at home and wanted to read one of my books, the iphone had the page marked where I left off on the kindle earlier in the day, that was a nice surprise! If you’re having trouble deciding and are faced with the choices I had, I assure you that you won’t regret buying the Kindle.
