Why the Kindle is off my Christmas list

For the physical design, it looks ugly, it feels flimsy, and seems a bit tacky. You can’t even hold the device in your hand without accidently pushing one of the buttons. It’s not a case of having sausage fingers, it’s more the palms of your hands which end up mashing the buttons. Whilst I’m aware this is a technology website, I never thought I’d recommend people stick to their books rather than a device which is meant to revolutionise reading.
