^ako sis nook ang preference ko. Big pluses for me are the buttons, expandable storage, and the formats supported (i have a lot of ebooks in epub format).
Mas convenient for me yung may buttons, makakapagturn ka ng pages using one hand only. Hassle kasi imomove mo pa yung fingers mo to the screen after every page especially if you're reading while lying down.

^naku black friday sale na! hay! inggit ako sis.  :D

Sa mga nagorder ng paperwhite sa amazon, out of stocks pa rin ba? btw, i heard mas mabilis ang shipping if through johnny air, ilan days lang, not weeks.

^i think if you order now, ang expected shipping date is dec 21. it's shown on amazon. limited 2 per customer na. that's just the shipping date, not the delivery date. when i ordered before, weeks din waiting time, but i didn't mind, since my brother will bring it home naman next week pa. but usually naman, amazon under promises but over delivers. :) meaning conservative estimate usually yung shipping date nila, so it will probably ship earlier.

i've had stuff shipped using johnny air before, all those times minimum 2 weeks yung delivery to me.

ah ok

Saka regarding converting epub for kindle, do I install the calibre on the kindle itself or sa PC? then transfer the converted filt to kindle?

Parang mejo hassle pakinggan kung tama ang pagkaintindi ko

^^install calibre on computer. open file in calibre. convert. transfer to kindle.

i don't organize my books. i usually delete na the book after reading, lalo na if so-so lang for me the book. so my usual routine is just what i mentioned above. it takes 5 mins. then i just use the calibre email route to transfer the book to my kindle. tamad ako to get the kindle cable, haha.

mine is a kindle 3 (with keyboard). memory's 4GB, equating to around 3000-3500 books (in mobi format since they take up very little space). as it is, roughly 2.4GB pa available space with all 1000+ books i have in the kindle. :)

my kindle is keyboard din. haha! i'm glad na kindle doesn't show yung memory space available in a percentages. nakakastress kaya pag ganun! :)

my classmate wants a kindle pero she wants a keyboard daw kasi yun daw ang best. sturdy daw. may nabasa daw kasi siyang article na kindle keyboard is still the best kindle.

maybe i'll buy paperwhite ng mga january february next year. feeling ko ubusan stocks ngayon kasi christmas. i'm in no hurry naman. still in love with my kindle keyboard. :) besides sayang naman memory if i wont fill it all up di ba? on second thought maybe i'll buy if i totally exhausted my kindle keyboard. para maging "libraries" ko na talaga ang mga ereaders ko (the keyboard and the future kindles i'll buy)

i consider it as my best gadget despite having a macbook, ipad and iphone.  :D
