Amazon's Kindle eBook good as it gets!

I saw a list of books today that made me want to jump up out of my chair and drive to the books store.  Oh, wait!!!  I don't have to go to the book store...I own a kindle.  12 wonderful ebooks right at my finger tips.  Everything from Tina Fey to a book about Mahatma Ghandi can be downloaded with out ever leaving my living room, in the middle of the night at a price that  tempts me to get them all.  It just doesn't get much better than that!

Here are the first 6 that were listed.  Go to the Amazon website to see the rest:
