    I love reading on my Kindle and an app for my Droid will be an added bonus for the times when I don't have my Kindle with me.

    Awesome, I dont do much reading on my droid but its nice to have the ability. I have Aldiko installed but theres not a lot of titles on there that are current.

    I use Aldiko and Laputa II...for my book readers.
    Kindle would be nice to have due to the wide selection of books.
    Reading on the phone is not bad but i cant stay on it too long, **** gives me a headache.
    lol

    Same here. Perhaps this will appeal to the same people who enjoy watching TV and videos on that tiny screen.

    Oh this just made my night complete! I have the Kindle app on my iTouch and loved it. HBut I've been weaning myself off of the iTouch since I got my Droid, and the Kindle app for Android was one of the big pieces I have been missing.

    I already ready "Kindle" books on my Droid.

    A Kindle app will be much better than the 'conversion' of Kindle content so that I can read these books on my Droid.

    I actually like reading on mydroid a lot! I still prefer paper books, but having a book with me at all times is great. I havent run into any issues with headaches or eye strain. Though, the longest i've read at a time is prob about 45 mins to an hour. I currently use eBook Reader Pro (available from free from their site). being able to change the font type and size as well as the background is awesome and works very well

    Sorry if this has been repeated, I'm a little bit of a newb on some things. I see some App's in the market place that are Audio books...What I'm looking to do is listen to books with my Aux plug in for my car ride to/from work. I don't know how to get the books onto my phone...I'd appriciate some helpful tips.

    Thanks in advance.

    The link is not working, any idea WHEN this is coming out - I've been waiting for this or the Barnes & Noble eReader. I love reading on my Droid when waiting for stuff (I spent a lot of time waiting; doctors, computer wait-bars, lunch, etc ;))>

    i read kindle books on my ipod touch all the time(in the car on the way to work in the mornings) the only drawback I found is the pages are shoeter so you are turning the pages more!

    I found a page to put in your e-mail so you can be notified as soon as it's out (i've added mine).
    Kindle for Android - Notify Me

    It just says "Coming Soon"... Hopefully real soon. I've been reading on Aldiko and I love it. I've done more reading then I have in the past because I always have a book with me. And yes I can watch tv shows on this too.

    sorry, don't know how to edit... or do links... :(

    Go to Amazon,
    Kindle Store,
    Under "Kindle Reading Apps" it has for Android and that's where you can put your e-mail...

    I read books all the time on my Droid, as does my wife. She actually has a a first gen kindle and prefers to read on her Droid(!). You can get all sorts of current titles in un-DRM'ed epub format (what Aldiko uses), you just have to know where to look (Baen books is a good source, as is Fictionwise). I have over 550 books on my phone and have read at least 100 of them on this particular phone (I've been reading on PDAs for years, starting with my Sony Clie) and it's the best reading experience in terms of resolution, etc. that I've had yet.
