I've kinda fallen in love with reading on a Kindle, having borrowed my mom's Kindle for the China trip. And carrying around the iPad and the Kindle is still lighter than a laptop, so it doesn't bother me.
Anyway, I think I want the Kindle Touch for $100, and I know that it has special offer ads on the lock screen and at the bottom on the home screen. But to clarify, it does NOT have any ads while you're actually reading, right?
I couldn't care less if there's an ad while I'm on the home screen or the lock screen, but wouldn't want it while reading.
my most recent kindle purchase is one with ads. The ads are very much not noticeable and I don't find them annoying at all... and if they ever become annoying you can pay amazon $40 to get rid of them.
