You're looking at your boring old Kindle. You're thinking, "Gosh, this sure could use a little more excitement." Well, I have a special offer for you! Amosu Couture, a company known for its Midas touch, has unveiled the Amazon Gold Kindle.

For the paltry sum of $1,950, you, too, can own this Cadillac of e-readers. Naturally, this is the top-of-the-line 3G model. Choose from white, rose, or yellow gold to match the massive gold chain you undoubtedly wear. It comes in hardened 24-carat gold with optional Swarovski crystals. As we know, crystals make everything better, so go for it.

A gold-covered Kindle is a great way to let the world know you believe the recession is over and that your disposable income is at a healthy level. Flash this bad boy at the next Comic-Con and you'll be guaranteed to attract only the classiest of Princess Leias.

Geek love may soon be expressed by the exchange of gold Kindles at the altar rather than wedding rings. Suggested reading for the gold Kindle includes "Getting Gold: A Practical Treatise for Prospectors, Miners and Students" and "The Power of Gold: The History of an Obsession."

There's no word yet on whether the gold Kindle improves the experience of reading the Twilight series.
