Amazon’s KindlePosted: March 21, 2009
So I got a, buy here —> Kindle (Amazon’s New Wireless Reading Device)
I had wanted to get one some time ago but being a seminary student like the many of my brothers know, $360 bucks is a ton of money for us. However, through some crazy reason I was able to get one through a friend of mine, trading him some commentaries for his old Kindle. In case you was wondering any of specs here they are.

Our vision is to have every book ever printed, in any language, all available in under 60 seconds on Kindle. We won’t stop until we get there.
