Praising my Kindle
The 3G was faultless in Cyprus (and in fact had a better signal that I usually get in the UK) meaning I could read the latest news every day via the KUF feed system etc where everyone else was shelling out for UK newspapers, check my email and drop in to KUF as often as I liked and all compeletely free. My mobile phone provider kindly texted me when the plane landed to let me know that I could go online for just £3.80 per mb.
Reading in dazzling sunlight was no problem at all, and the light weight meant it went practically everywhere with me, and our luggage was considerably lighter than usual as we both normally take at least 3 books each on holiday.
Not that I had any doubts before, but I am now more certain than ever that my Kindle was the best purchase I have made in many years.
