Yep, you can use Netflix on it. Also you can buy/rent movies off amazon and watch on there as well (not sure if that was limited to Amazon Prime or not).

LOL
I was also really happy with the video quality on my Kindle. I really didn't expect it would be so good.

Any Amazon movies. It really is set up to make Amazon video purchases very easy, of course.

hahaha im not much of a share-er i dont even share my phone (an iPhone) with my SO (he has his own smartphone, but insists mine's 'better' & always wants to use it) i never let kids play with my electronics, but i have my reasons for that as well.

i have been entertaining the fact of getting a kindle or nook e reader & wonder how do you get the books on there, you have to buy them right? how does that work? do you have to have a credit card or something?

Ya, I didn't expect it on the nook either, LOL That's the biggest reason I went to B&N in person instead of ordering online.

I mean I love my regular nook for reading.....e-ink truly is the next best thing to an actual page, but streaming movies and stuff online is a whole different thing and I had to see it to believe.

I really was one of those people who said NEVER to e-readers........said I loved the smell of a new book way too much to go digital and now I can't imagine giving up my nook! LOL (still love to smell my 'real' books tho )

Also, I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to talk down about Kindle, it was a tough choice for me between nook/kindle. I think whatever e-reader you've decided suits your needs is the one you should get, but that's the way I feel about most anything

Dogdragoness, we (indiana) have a digital library. My 'regular' library card number works online as well to download books from the digital media center. The book is good for 2 weeks (just like regular library books) then it expires.......no need to return, and no late feels! LOL

Bet your state has a digital library too! Most do by now I think

yeah I probably wouldn't let most kids touch my phone and certainly not get them a tablet lol but Hannah is very responsible and trustworthy. I don't think she's ever even broken a toy before and heaven forbid she accidently ripped a page in a book, you'd think she committed the worlds worst felony LOL. She takes very good care of her toys, her clothes, my phone, everything. In fact the only person who has ever broken my phone was my Mother In Law LOL (by accident of course haha)

but in the end... I'm not even buying it lol and it wouldn't be mine to share lol. she's buying it for Hannah so Hannah will be sharing with me LOL.

Hannah likes to play a lot of learning games and it will be nice for her to be able to play them on a bigger screen

@A cooper Oh i didnt think of a digital library or whatever!! thats awesome! so thats how it works!!!! i might ask for one of those for xmas! what about the internet tablet thing part, how does that work? i might not do it that way because i have the iPhone & the laptop, so i dont really neeed it to function as a tablet... but i am curious as to how it works. I love the smell of "new book" too i also love the "smell" of a book store, sad its a dying thing to see an actual book store, & i imagine the invention of amazon.com & e readers will kill them off completely much like blockbuster .com, DVD kiosks, & netflicks did to the video store.

I know amazon also has a bunch of options for free books (some of them are only open to Prime members but most of them anyone can get)

thats awesome you have such a caring, gentle child, i wish more parents instilled that in their kids, i was like that because we werent rich when i was growing up... we werent POOR, but my parents certianly didnt have the money to go out & replace a toy everytime i broke it, nor would they, & when i was young i broke a few, & i had to learn the hard way that once you break something, its broken & too bad. which is why i think im so careful with my things (phone... etc) & who uses them. esp if they are gifts.
