I have a Kindle Fire HD and I love it! It's easy to understand and the interface is perfect. Here's the one I have on Amazon http://amzn.to/11SRHbE. If you're looking for a tablet you should check it out, I think it's very underrated.

It's nice they finally fixed the multipage highlight thing. That was beginning to get embarrassing. I'd love for them to introduce a better way to actually read my highlights though. I got so sick of not being able to read them I built a solution (kindred.it if you're interested), but the fact I can't read my own highlights in a nice way is such a massive oversight by Amazon.
