This is a test, this is only a test - now we'll find out if I managed to figure out how to do this right or if I'm deluded.  ;D

The Book Corner / Baen adds "email to my Kindle" option
« on: December 07, 2008, 07:56:42 pm »
Was just poking around on Baen's Bar, and saw a discussion about accessing webscriptions and ease of use with the Kindle.  Thanks to the original poster's suggestion, there is now a nifty little button "Email book to my Kindle" when you go to download your books.  Can't test it out since the stupid emails are down, but this should be a time saver.  It even reminds you to make sure that you add @webscriptions.net to your allowed list for your Kindle email.  Arnold must have put it in today, it definitely wasn't an option when I was downloading yesterday morning.
Also for any other Honor Harrington Uber-fans like me - the e-ARC is finally available for Storm from the Shadows.  It includes the e-ARC and the "oopsie" version that was posted in error earlier this year.  Only for the Uber-fan though at $15.00.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Checking Whispernet coverage
« on: December 01, 2008, 03:44:59 pm »
My turn for a dumb question, I'm sure somebody can point to the discussion that I can't find now - although it may have been on that other board that we escaped from...
I know there is a way to check the Whispernet/Sprint coverage for an area, there was a link to a website, IIRC and it showed coverage over a map in various shades of green.  I've just lost the link and I can't find it on the boards here.  I do remember a post reminding people to check their coverage, but I'm not finding it.  Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Katiekat

Introductions & Welcomes / Hi, Y'all

I'm being a good little girl and into'ing myself just like I was told  ;D

I'm Katie, and I've been addicted to e-books for a while now, I finally rationalized the purchase of a gadget just for books.  My Kindle will probably be named Hypatia (Tia for short) for Hypatia of Alexandria, even if there isn't much proof that she was the librarian at Alexandria.  I'm excited as all get out about this, I just can't wait til it gets here!

Mostly I'm an SF reader but my bookshelves groan under a wide range of titles - Hopefully this will keep the additions to my library down so that I can catch up with the need for shelf space in my tiny house.  I'm in western Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and I'm a rabid college football fan.  I'm also one of those crazy people who travel around to Science Fiction conventions and freak out the mundanes in the vicinity.   

Looking forward to future conversations......
Katie
