Since I bought my 7" Kindle Fire HD it has become a pleasurable part of my everyday life. Now that the cold weather is here I love staying in my warm, comfy bed just a little longer in the mornings and checking my emails, Amazon deal of the day, and some other online stuff with my Kindle.
Netflix works great, it's so cool to be able to watch a movie anywhere in my house. I think it's been a terrific value. At first it seems YouTube wouldn't work most of the time, but there was a recent update and now YouTube seems to be working ok.
And of course, if you love to read like I do, the Kindle is absolutely fantastic for that purpose.
