I love amazon, but am trying not to let that be the deciding factor. I don't plan on downloading and dealing with any .mobi or .epub conversions.. I just want to be able to buy magazine subs or books and read them. I've read you can connect both to your local library but I don't believe this is something I'll do often. I've used the older kindles and really liked the next page buttons, which seem to be absent on the kindle touch. I don't need 3g. Overall thoughts? Right now I'm leaning towards the regular kindle although I think I might miss the 'x-ray' feature of the touch. The entire touch screen thing is kind of overused and overrated, and I feel like amazon only added it to compete with nook even though it doesn't seem to add much functionality. The nook looks too much like a toy, in my opinion. I played with one at b&n and it was very sluggish when changing pages.
