Yes, by all means, check out the Tips and Tricks topic--you'll know everything about your Kindle, and shop for books in the Book Corner and shop for a present for your Kindle in Accessories.  We've found some great stuff and aren't afraid to share it!  Free books, bargain books and pretty, pretty stuff.....

Thanks I think by Christmas I'll have quite a bit on my wish list for my Kindle I already have a few. The tip are great and I like to see what other people are reading now. I'm trying not to buy any I believe the term on here is dead tree books and just stick to the ones I already have or reread them. Luckily this board is helping take up a lot of my time.

Now I'm looking for an awesome name for my Kindle and I haven't even met it yet!

Hello Kristen,

   There must be some way to convince your husband to let you open "just one" present early. While you're waiting, don't let all these women convince you to play Barbie with your Kindle. It doesn't need clothes.

   You know that you can download books from the free sites to your computer now right? Then just drag and drop onto your Kindle---you could have 1000 books without spending a dime.

   I have no idea who calls Walt in the middle of the night but you can pass your time with us.

    Hope the time passes quickly!

Kristen--

Sounds like you're happy to wait.  Maybe you could drop a blanket over the gift or something, LOL!

We're indeed glad to help you spend the time.  You can get a lot of pre-Kindling done here!  As I probably said already, you'll want a gift for your Kindle, it keeps them happy, and Accessories is the place to find them!

Tee hee

Dec 6 is the feast of St. Nicholas and since he's the original Santa Claus it's a perfect day to open a present.

Kristen- Welcome, I live real close to you- in Lake Wales, Fl (near Winter Haven). I have named my Kindle Scotty and he does have a very nice Oberon cover that he is very proud to be seen wearing.

My husband was raised in Winter Haven and his parents still live there so we're there every few weeks usually.

Hi, I'm new here. My name's CJ and I've had my Kindle since March. I loved the Kindle so much that after a few weeks of playing with it, I started a blog about it - http://www.lightmykindle.com.

I'm looking forward to being able to talk about the Kindle with other Kindle owners, since most of the time when I talk about the Kindle, I'm answering questions about it for potential buyers or curious relatives.

My name is Micah and I'm a college student. I haven't got my Kindle yet but it's in the mail.
I've read over 50 books this year alone, all in paper form, and cannot wait to have my hands on the Kindle. It's all I talk about, my girlfriend doesn't think I love her anymore.

After your Kindle arrives, try to make time for her and not talk about it too much.  Do not take it with you on dates.(the Kindle, not the girl friend)

When you feel the urge and just have to talk about your Kindle, come here and do it, we're all of a like mind here(hive mind?)  We understand your joy.  Welcome.

Welcome, Micah!  Congratulations on your soon-to-arrive Kindle!  Let us know when it gets here, we love being on Kindlewatch with an expectant owner.

Be sure to check out the Book Corner, we have lots of recommendations of free and bargain books!

Don't let the Kindle come between you and your girlfriend, though.  We've already heard tales of Kindle widows and winders, LOL!

Well, I live with my girlfriend and I've already made some space between us in bed to place my Kindle. We don't go on dates anymore, I spend my nights browsing Gutenberg. Every time I say "I love you," I whisper "Kindle."
She's knows that she could never ask me to choose between her and It.

Welcome, Micah. Hope your Kindle gets to you quickly.

Thanks for the welcome! My Kindle should arrive next week. It's refurbished, but parents still love the children they adopt as much as the ones they made, right?

Hi,
I've been on the boards for a couple of weeks now, but never introduced myself.  I've named my kindle "Obsessive Kindlesive", because when I'm not reading on it, I'm on the computer reading about it or it's accessories!!  My mom and sisters and I all bought at the same time (about a month ago) and none of us can put them down.  We just got home from Mexico, and all 4 of us were lined up on lounge chairs in the sun with our kindles!!  (Glad the husbands were around, or we'd have some neglected kids this trip!)
