KindleWatch is ON!
« on: November 05, 2018, 04:25:09 am »
No, no shipping notice yet, but I did get an email this morning inviting me to take advantage of the free KU offer. It's 3 6 months free; must sign up by the end of next January.

I had KU for a while and wasn't thrilled -- had a hard time, frankly, finding books that were the quality I expect. But maybe I'll give it another shot. I've got 6 library books out right now, though, that I have to finish in the next 3 weeks or so -- so I'll probably wait a bit.

    It's been a long time since the last Kindle watch.  I'm not expecting, but I'll watch with you.  :)

    I'm in the same boat as the OP - got the KU mail but no shipping notice yet. This is a good sign though. Getting excited... :D

    Exciting! I haven't gotten a text notice yet, but I'm not on Prime on the account I ordered this one from, so mine will be another week probably.  :-X

    I got the email for the 6 months kindle unlimited.  No shipping notice yet, no serial number for it under devices yet.

    A bit nervous about getting this one.  I have it shipping to my moms(FL) instead of home(CT) since Im headed there today.  And decided I could not just let this sit at home waiting for me till late next week.

    I had a pile of Kindle readers when I traded them all in to purchase the Oasis. I really like the Oasis, but regret I do not have a backup Kindle, except for my Fire. Actually, I would rather have another reader than the Fire.

    Why am I not seeing a comparison to the Voyage? Was it discontinued?

    They never updated the Voyage over the last 4 years as they did the PaperWhite. This new PW, though, does have some of the features of the Voyage. New Voyages haven't been on sale at Amazon for at least 6-8 months, maybe a year. Refurbished units are (or were within the last couple of months) still available, however.

    No shipping notice here, but, as I'm Prime, I don't expect it, really, until much later today. The thing is probably sitting in a warehouse 10 miles away and they won't need to do anything until later in the day for me to still get it tomorrow.

    Mine is on it's way. ;D

    No idea what time tomorrow it will arrive though - hopefully I won't have to wait all day. I want time to play!  ;D

    No KU offer here in the UK >:( (unless they just don't offer it to customers who already have it?).

    Received my shipping notice a few minutes ago. It will be delivered tomorrow, any time up to 11pm (don't recall receiving a delivery window quite so late before).
    Great news!

    Mine is still due for delivery tomorrow, but I've had no shipping notice yet.

    Just checked tracking and it's coming from Georgia. At least the storms have moved out and weather is meant to be fine from there to here and everywhere in between. :D

    The tracking on my Kindle shows it to be only a couple of miles away, but with another 11 stops before it gets to me.  :o

    From past deliveries, I reckon that's about another hour. Watching it on the map is like waiting for a kettle to boil - it just seems to take foooooreveeeeer ..... :o

    EDIT: 9 stops away!  ;D

    EDIT 2: It got all the way down to "1 stop away" and was in the road behind mine, then it changed to "the driver has to make a few more deliveries on the way to your address" and he went off in the opposite direction!  :o  He was right here! He could have dropped off my parcel in 30 seconds before he went away!  >:( >:(
