The most exciting feature that i think is the newspaper delivery option. But the price is also not to less so i was thinking if anybody can give me some info about it.
Does it do what it says ..and is it worth it?

Take Care.

The Samsung R8E3 book reader would KO the kinder book reader any day of the week. Too fast, too skillfull, and the Samsungs jab thuds home way too hard... those childrens books wont know what hit em

I've never listened to an audiobook, though I just barely got into reading, since starting Ive read the Delahoya American Son, Sammy the Bull Gravano autobiography, and am now reading Rogue Warrior a book about the guy who started Navy Seals Team Six

You should read "The Power of One" next. It's a hero's journey about a bullied South African kid that learns to box.

It was written by an Aussie, but the guy knows how to form complete sentences so you can hardly notice.
