Yeah, it does. And you don't have to pay for it (unlike with cell phones) because Amazon pays for it somehow. I'm not really sure how it works. But I guess it's like . . . if you were in an airport or something and wanted to download a book, the 3g could connect you to the Amazon Kindle website for free.

Haha! That would be nice. But unfortunately, the only thing it connects to is the Kindle website and I think possibly wikipedia. But that's it. If you want something to browse the web with that doubles as an E-reader, you might consider an iPad. You could download the Kindle app for it.

I wouldn't mind an I Pad but I don't want to pay $400 for it. My laptop cost me $450.

I know, I totally understand where you're coming from. And Apple products never go on sale, either.

I doubt that Amazon will put Kindles on sale, either. I'm so tempted to go ahead and order my Kindle right now.

I buy all my electronics, even my Kindle, through Best Buy. I make sure I buy just enough to qualify for at least 6 months no interest. Consequently, I've been paying off my Best Buy bill for about a year and a half now.

I really like my Kindle a lot and they're getting more and more content every day. They used to have a pretty limited selection but it's gotten much better.

Yeah, some are. I think some authors publish free Kindle books to get their names out there and then they publish work that you have to pay for. It's probably what I should do if I ever finish one of my books.

It will be nice to have something that I can take outside on my porch. My wireless should work out there.
