Going out of a limb here...

At some point and with any luck, we will be traveling again. I am beginning to think about getting something to read things one, like a Kindle.

What are your experiences? Do you recommend them? How easy are they to use? If not a Kindle, what would you suggest?

This doesn't mean I plan to give up on books, but I can't help thinking a tablet would be easier than lugging about a suitcase full of books (which is what I usually do).
