I've also posted my answers on my blog which opens with your opening paragraph (suitably acknowledged, with links) hope you don't mind.
My biggest bug-bear so far has been the unavailability of some books, due to them not being available outside of the USA (usually due to some sort of copyright thing, or local publishers not wanting Amazon to have them available).
I have increased my reading since getting the Kindle as I've found, generally, that books are cheaper (in some cases free or only a few dollars) even for new books not just the old classics, hence I'm acquiring more.
The launch of the iPad will, despite it not being as good for reading books, (though much better for magazines, comics and picture books) boost the release of books to eBook format. Just look what's happened in the music industry since iTunes got such a big hold on the market.
I could rave on for ages about it, but will leave you with one big tip - get Calibrehttp://calibre-ebook.com/ manage all your ebooks and convert pdf to ebook.
Yes I'd noticed that the Charter of Human Rights didn't get the go ahead, and have read a few articles about that, but I hadn't seen that link to ACL (evil bastards). I participated in one of the Human Rights forums and read some of the submissions. I have no idea how these religious nutjobs like Wallace can think it's a threat to their religion?
Where did you find that out?
At least you know that you have been having some sort of influence, well done.
I prefer to see the exact same tweet, like you said Sean, I'll screen it out if I've seen it before, but might get suckered in if you re-worded it.
Got here via your last tweet, after checking twitter on returning from lunch.
