Recently I found myself in need of a book reader, (maybe a cell phone is just too small for my age to read )

I dont want a tablet because Im sure it pretty sure will become an additional arcade machine in my hoe..

Now I am thinking of Kindle touch or fire.
sorry for my typing as its from my phone

For reading books, Kindle Touch or similar ink print like reader is really the best. Kindle Fire is just like iPad.

Is it a 6" screened?  Would that be small for reading?  After some reading using ipad on Haodoo, I found Kindle may be a better choice in terms of its weight, eye-saving and of course battery problem.

I saw Chin's Kindle and I think the screen is a little small.  I love the paper-white appearance though.

I just received the new toy yesterday and was messing around with it....

It was easy to use and within 5 min I started reading some of my books.   Just one problem: I viewed my pdf inside the Kindle and the font were not look as solid as it compared to other real E-book's font, e.g user guide from Amazon, I guess this is a problem of pdf format itself as it needed to scale to fit the screen.

Anyone has this experience?  How to improve this? ???  Or any conversion tools you guys are using?
