I bought a Kindle on Wednesday. It's the base version of the latest generation.
So far I am happy with it. There are only a couple things I think should be changed, but I'll probably get used to them. It does what it is supposed to do and it does it very well.
I have been searching for astronomy books to put on it an it has been an interesting search.
I'll start with this collection of books that are available online for free. The list contains electronic books in several flavors some are compatible with the Kindle and others are not. It has a lot of books and a lot of them are really old. Do you want an edition of Tycho Brahe's "De nova et nullius aevi memoria prius visa stella"? In Latin? It's available. www.digitalbookindex.com/subject_search/search010astronomya/1
