Will my son get a lot of use from a Kindle?

My soon to be 12 year old is hankering for a Kindle as his only gift this year. He's responsible with his electronics and takes extremely good care of them. I have no hesitation on that end. Are there many free books for teens (he's a very avid and advanced reader). Also, with the way he goes through books, I just wonder how much I'll end up spending. Anyone have any experience with their children and a Kindle? Oh...and the libraries in my sleepy town haven't caught up with this technology, so that's not an option. Thanks!

How to transfer Instapaper to Kindle 3

I cannot figure out how to transfer articles I've saved at Instapaper to my new Kindle 3. From what I read it ought to be possible, but after two days I can't set it up. If I understand correctly, Instapaper will email to my kindle email address the articles I select to be sent, and the Kindle is somehow supposed to receive them via my Wi-Fi. Need I admit I'm a bit clueless? I need very specific step-by-step directions and or suggestions for finding / hiring somebody to set this up for me. I bought the Kindle mainly to be able to do this. I work on Mac Book Pro.

Lost my Kindle. 1. If I deregister, will it wipe my contact info as well, so that if anyone does find it and wants to return it to me, they'll be unable to? 2. Will I be unable to reregister the Kindle if I find it? 3. Anything else I can/should do?

It's on the web, but I want it in my pocket. Sort of as a book.

What's the best / easiest way to process / format material I've downloaded or copied from the web to read on Apple's Books app? On a Kindle? If I format for the Kindle, would the material be synced on both devices if I use the Kindle iPhone app as my reader? I've been using Calibre to rip ePubs, but there has to be an easier way than what I'm doing, which takes forever. [more inside]

Easily moving web content offline to a n ebook.

I'm considering purchasing a Kindle (or other ebook reader depending on advice) primarily to read links sent it via Read It Later or Instapaper. Which is the best device for this type application, and what is the workflow like to get articles routinely routed to the ebook reader. I prefer a device that makes it as seamless and easy as possible. Any tips?

Kindle not really for me?

I've been giddy with excitement and waiting anxiously for my kindle 3 ever since I ordered it a month ago--and then yesterday I read David Pougue's review and the comments to his article. Now I am sad and depressed. They are saying horrible things like when you buy the eBooks they don't really belong to you and you can't share them and worst of all I won't be able to read the eBooks from my public library on the kindle. Can this be true? Should I just pack up the kindle and send it back? Woe is me.

US MeFite moving to London asks the eternal question: Kindle or Nook?

I am in the process of preparing to move to London for the next four years to attend college. As I have sold off a large portion of my beloved library, I don't want to find myself doing the same exercise in 4.5 years time when I return to the US. Coming late to the ebook reader dance, I ask you which of these two will be the better choice in light of current capabilities (and in addition to the fact that I want a reader to buy and read books, extras do not figure into the equation) - the Kindle or the Nook?

1984, part two?

I'm sure most of you remember last year's Kindle debacle, when Amazon deleted copies of 1984 from users' machines. Now I've heard that Amazon can also track the highlight function, and stores the information of how users read. Is this true? Are there other Kindle-spylike things that Amazon can do/is doing?
