With more than one million books available in the Kindle Store, the Kindle Touch 3G is perfect for the bookworm on your list. Beginning next week, AT&T* will sell Amazon’s Kindle Touch 3G in select AT&T company-owned retail stores nationwide for $149.

Kindle Touch is a new addition to the Kindle family with an easy-to-use touch screen that makes it easier than ever to turn pages, search, shop, and take notes - still with all the benefits of the most advanced electronic ink display.
