A gadget which is definitely on my to-get-list. What do you think of it so far? I read e-books on an iPad and think it's ok, but I imagine that the Kindle is better on the eyes in the long run (plus, also a bit lighter weight wise?).
Yes, it's great. It takes a bit of getting used to the small size but the eink is excellent to read off of and because the screen is more of a matte consistency it doesn't have anywhere near as much glare as a tablet. I used to read on my iPad too but it used to drain the battery, was a lot heavier and had glare issues. I'd definitely recommend buying a Kindle (or any ereader). It can be a bit scary how easy it is to buy things though! One click and it's there for you to read and you forget you're actually spending money.

What are Flexmarkers? I googled them but I'm not quite sure, I'm guessing they are flexible in some way?

They are Promarkers (a Copics competitor) with a flexible tip, almost brush like. The other tip (other end) is a chisel tip, like the original Promarkers. :)

I love online shopping, and ebook shopping in particular! I mostly buy work related ebooks, though, so I feel I can defend it. ;) (Now, my paperback purchases, on the other hand..! >_< I still prefer "regular" books for fiction.)
