The device is absolutely worth it if you are a book lover. But these seem to be a bit overpriced. I have used one (the most basic version) for almost 6 months now. If you want to get started with Kindle, and don't have much cash to splurge, I'd recommend this.

Agree. Kindle is "the device" for distraction-free reading.
