    Agreed. The book is easier to read on the Kindle. But the convenience of not having to carry around an additional device is a nice perk (+ in addition to saving $). I read 100+ books on the iTouch last year and had no complaints. Just finished Shutter Island on the Blackberry last night...

    In my experience, the Kindle is the best e-reader. But if you don't have the $ hundreds to spend, the free iPhone app is outstanding substitute. FYI: The Kindle App for Blackberry is finally out! I am a book-a-holic so this made my week. I now read all of my books on the Storm. Brad

    Cost for Rental Question

    Thanks for your input, Steve! It sounds like Recoleta is the upscale neighborhood. That's not really my priority. The proximity to nightlife and safety are most important to me. Would you recommend Palermo or Barrio Norte? Thank you, everyone. Brad

    Cost for Rental Question

    Regular long-term. I don't know what a short-term furnished apartment costs. It makes sense - between the lack of guarantor and short-term nature, the price is far from the typical long-term arrangement in BA. Thanks again, Brad

    Hi Expats! I am arriving in BA the week of April 15th, for two months. The clocks starts ticking then. I would love to hear what a 26-year old single guy should do before his time is up in BA. Sites, bars, restaurants, excursions, volunteering, classes, etc? Thanks all, Brad
