Thanks for your help! [more inside]

Should I Kindle outside the U.S., or will I get burned?

Any Non-U.S. users of Amazon's Kindle (or other E-reader) out there? Can you tell me how it's working out for you? I'm trying to decide whether to splurge for my birthday, and really don't want to invest that much money in a mistake. [more inside]
