I'm hoping for a new Kindle this Christmas. While I'm one of those traditional book lovers who enjoys the smell of a fresh printed book and holding it in my hand, the new text to speech feature on the Kindle is luring me.

Over a year ago I began having eye problems due to a condition I developed in my eyes from wearing contacts for so many years and not getting enough oxygen to the cornea. To make matters worse I suffer from severe allergies and dry eyes. Too much time on the computer strains my eyes, and since I'm required to be on it for my day job, a text to speech feature on the Kindle would greatly benefit me when I want to read for pleasure. I'd be able to listen to books while driving to and from work and possibly read more books than currently.
If you have a Kindle and you've used the text to speech feature, will you let me know how you like it? Does it pause between sentences or state the punctuation? Can you set the speed and voice to your personal preferences? I'd love to hear opinions!
