It wasn't that I was ever that against ereaders, I just never really felt like I needed one. But to be honest, lugging the books I read every day to work and back, especially when I was reading Pillars of the Earth, which hits about 900 pages, can be a pain.
I also have been afraid that if I bought a kindle, I would give in to my book obsession even more-- tempted to buy books just as soon as they came out-- with one click from the ereader-- rather than wait to get it from the library.
But when I got an Amazon gift card from work for passing a health screening, I decided to bite the bullet.
And yes I love it.
Of course, my new kindle needed a new case. And if you have a kindle or ereader or just want to sew a little padded case, I put together a visual tutorial:

And another addition-- I added about 6 inches in total to the width, and 3 inches to the height. You want it much wider than you think you need because the zipper will take about an inch or two off of room and you'll want to be able to take the ereader in and out with ease.
