New Reading Material

I got a kindle!  It came today.  

When Amazon dropped the price and went to a wi-fi version I decided to finally buy one. 

So far it's looking good.  It charged quickly.  I've downloaded some free books (PG Wodehouse anyone...) and a few others I had to pay for.  A review shall be forthcoming once I get a chance to use it for a while. 

It's very exciting.

1 My daughters gave me one for Father's Day, and after a few days' use, I decided I don't really want to go back to paper books unless I must.

I also am taking full advantage of the many 99-cent anthologies from Amazon. But my overloaded bookshelves are thanking me already.

Enjoy!

You should do some book reviews! I am always after movie and book recommendations. I don't believe just anyone.

4 PG Wodehouse: Squeeee! 

Sorry, that's what I always do when confronted with Wodehouse. 

Oldest Daughter d/l the kindle app to her Blackberry and uses that.  Loves it!  I'm of the old school... I just love books; the feel of them, the smell... doubt I could change.

6 Thanks all.  So far so good.  All I have on it are things I've already read that are favorites of mine - it's a test.  I do like to reread and if it doesn't drive me nutso reading a favorite, I should be able to read anything on it.

I tried the kindle app on my ipod touch - the screen is way too small - made me antsy to read more than a few minutes. 

Cin - thanks so much for the links!  Glad to know I don't need to use the SYM key just to get numbers!!!

More later - stay tuned.

7 Did you also get an iPad? Or I dreamed that? You get all the cool gadgets.

8 I haven't got an iPad yet.  I'm waiting for at least the 2nd gen so they get more bugs worked out... but damn it's tempting!!! After all, you can take it on a plane without unloading it from your bag - that is very cool indeed.  Now if Steve will just hurry up with the newer models. LOL.

9 I think I'm waiting for 2d gen too. Sounds like a plan.

10 I know I'm a gadget freak. I try to control it by not buying immediately... but I do love my toys.
