The NEW Kindle 2!!

Amazon's infamous wireless reader just got an update...the Kindle 2! And guess what, guys? They've been made available, as of yesterday, for preorder at $359 to be shipped later this month. You can get yours today at!

To celebrate, Amazon is also featuring Kindle accessories, such as covers from Cole Haan, Belkin and more.

What makes the new Kindle different from the previous version, you ask? Quite a bit, actually...take a look:

New Features & Enhancements

Slim & Lightweight: Just over 1/3 inch and 10.2 ounces.

Books in under 60 seconds: Get books delivered in less than 60 seconds; no PC required.

Improved Display: Reads like real paper; now boasts 16 shades of gray for crisp images and text; even reads well in bright sunlight.

Longer Battery Life: 25% longer battery life; read for days without recharging.

More Storage: Take your library with you; holds over 1,500 books.

Faster Page Turns: 20% faster page turns.

Read-to-Me: Text-to-Speech feature means Kindle can read every book, blog, magazine, and newspaper out loud.

No Wireless Bills: No monthly wireless bills, data plans, or commitments. Amazon pays for Kindle’s wireless connectivity so you won’t see a monthly wireless bill.

Large Selection: Over 230,000 books, plus U.S. and international newspapers, magazines and blogs available.

Low Book Prices: New York Times Best Sellers and New Releases $9.99, unless marked otherwise.

I, for one, was pretty impressed with the updates. I'm also an incorrigible bookworm, so no surprise there, lol. It's definitely worth a look if you're one also! Even if you're not, with thousands of books in so many catagories available to choose from, you're sure to find something in your favorite subject.
