Let's Talk Kindle! / How Can I Tell???
« on: September 30, 2012, 07:08:45 am »

I just ordered a Kindle Keyboard (formerly Kindle 3) and I know that there's a way to tell if the unit that I receive is refurbished or not.
Could someone in the know take pity on me and let me know what to look for when my eagerly awaited new member of the family arrives?

Thanks so much for your help!!

Archives / FS: Like New Noreve Ocean Blue K2 Cover
« on: July 29, 2010, 07:23:39 pm »
Used once- I bought it as a backup for my original Noreve and it's only been out of it's box once.

I have the original box/shipping packaging and just priced it on the Noreve website. Their price is $85.14 including shipping.

I'm asking $60 including shipping... would prefer Amazon gift card but will accept non-cc PayPal also.
This is my first attempt at selling, so bear with me.

Thanks in advance for looking- Please post here to express interest and send a PM with information.  

Well, I finally caved.

DH has been coveting my Kindle since it arrived a month ago- so last night I bit the bullet and ordered another!

So now we're officially on Kindle Watch again!!! He's so happy- I offered him the DX, but he wanted one 'just like mine'.....

Think good thoughts that it doesn't take TOO long, or he'll go crazy!


It was waiting in our mailbox today- along with the Borsa Bella "manbag" that I'd picked for him. He's got it charging, and is SO happy!! I only wish that I could have sent the Harry Potter books to it- he's rereading #7 now. AND, he's already picked a name- which has been added on the Manage My Kindle page.

Another successful 'birth'.....  ;D

Let's Talk Kindle! / I'm ordering Tonight! **UPDATE**
« on: June 11, 2009, 09:36:51 pm »
I received my MyPoints Amazon gift certificates a couple of days ago, and registered them into my Amazon account- so I now have $150 just sitting there.......

Waiting for me to order my Kindle.
So even though I'm traveling right now, I've decided that now would be the time to take the plunge (with free shipping)!

So wish me luck, and keep your fingers crossed that it gets delivered before I go to NYC next month...

I've got butterflies!


Amazon wasn't supposed to ship it until the 17th, and I got notification this morning that it has already shipped!!
USPS of course, but at least it's on it's way.... The post office has no record of it, but in the Amazon 'where's my stuff' page it's been started on it's journey. I'll be checking it out multiple times daily!!!

I want it NOW!!!!!!!

Kindle Accessories / Screen Protectors

Does anyone use these?
If so, which one is the best? Is it necessary?
Which company does non-glare/non-shiney?

Input...  I need input!

Kindle Accessories / Noreve Cover
« on: May 09, 2009, 06:02:52 am »
I'm planning on ordering a Noreve 'summer' cover this weekend (before the code expires), and was hoping that someone could tell me how hard it is to get the Kindle in and out of it.

I know about the 'rails', but I plan on switching over to a 'winter' cover later in the year (a rotational thing) and am concerned about how hard it will be to get the Kindle out of the Noreve cover to transfer to another cover.

I love the light purple Noreve, but the Oberon is calling my name for winter.....


Kindle Accessories / Car Charger for K2
« on: May 08, 2009, 06:10:52 pm »
I finally got a look at a real live K2, and was surprised/pleased to notice that my phone charger will work with the K2!

My hubby kept asking me how I'd keep the Kindle charged on long road trips- and I was able to compare Micro USB ports on both.
So now I don't have to worry about trying to buy one that might short out my Kindle.

Some of you looking for a car charger might want to check out your phones and compare your charging port with the Kindle port.

Good Luck!!

Kindle Accessories / Decalgirl Custom Skin Question
« on: May 05, 2009, 03:21:26 pm »
Has anyone been able to apply the discount code to a custom skin order?

This is the one that I've been discussing (maybe someone could clue me in on how to post a pic), and when I asked about using the code (as I'd be getting charged $7 for shipping, I wanted to try to save a bit on the skin) I was told that it couldn't be used on a custom order.


Let's Talk Kindle! / Sony Ebook/Google Books Deal
« on: March 19, 2009, 09:52:04 am »

So how do you think that this new deal will affect Kindle/Amazon?

They were trumpeting it all over the airwaves this morning- sounded mighty pleased with themselves.....

Okay, let me preface this by saying that I'm in a pre-Kindle state.
I'd like to purchase books for my Kindle to be (or get free ones) and have them waiting in the wings for my Kindle (when I've saved enough money to buy it).

Can this be done? I wanted to put them in my wish list or something- but don't always have the option. And the free ones only give me the option to download to my Kindle, which I don't have yet.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have a couple of free books on my notepad by my computer, but I'd really rather get them and store them in my account until I get the Blessed One.

Thanks so much!

I thought that it was a apropo subject line......  :D

I'm saving for my Kindle and doing research like crazy! My hubby is resigned to the proposed adoptee because he knows how much I love to read.

I know that I'll be moving over to the Tips, Tricks and Troubleshooting board here- because I'm concerned about the 'fadeout in direct sunlight' issue and the 'ink not as crisp in K2' issue.

Needless to say, I want my new Baby to be PERFECT with no diseases or 'birth defects'. I know it sounds cold.... but with the economy the way it is- it's daunting to think that I have to spend roughly $65 to get the battery replaced, and have to worry about display 'glitches' too.

I'm naturally pessimistic though- so I know I'll have a 'exceptional' Baby to coddle.

Has anyone heard rumors about K3???  ::) Just kidding!

Am I correct in assuming that once you apply a skin to your Kindle- that it is permanent?

As you can tell, I've been doing a lot of reading in preparation to take the plunge; and have seen people talking about ordering more than one skin.

How would you change them out??

As you can tell- I'm confused! Thanks so much for starting this website though...... It's helping me and causing more questions at the same time.   :o
