to buy or not to buy, that is the question

I don't need a Kindle2. True I don't have a Kindle from the first go round. But really, I've done without a Kindle so far, I can probably do without the Kindle2.
But I do have bad eyesight and one can enlarge the font on the Kindle2 until it is comfortable for my eyes.
But I have coped with bad eyesight without the Kindle.
True, I can upload my manuscripts and work on them at all sorts of places where I am stuck waiting. 
But I have coped with carrying around manuscripts and a laptop, etc.
It is tax deductible as a business expense.
But it is over $350.00. Much more because if I was going to be insane and buy one, I would also buy the fancy leather case.
Next year the price will probably go way down.
I don't need a Kindle2, I just want one. Sigh. The answer is NOT TO BUY.
Sigh! Sometimes I hate making mature, responsible choices.

I'm feeling so behind the times. I heard the word Kindle just a couple of weeks ago. Actually, I thought it was a she. :-)

Glad you're not caving....

Actually, writing the post helped my resolve.

What's a Kindle? LOL sometimes I feel like I don't know anything even though I'm called the Dictionary.

My Mom doesn't even consider half of the time of when to buy or not to buy. She just buys to have. :(
