Now I'm rethinking my Kindle's name.  Since she's not even here yet I still have time...

I've been calling her Bibi, short for Biblioteca.  What do y'all think?

I think that's an awesome name!  Very creative!

I'm still debating mine...
Susannah was suggested...Susie, hmm?  Maggie is still in the running.  Usually I'm not this indecisive!

I love the Tree of Life!  I am using major willpower and haven't ordered it...but I have put it on my Christmas list.   :)

Hey there Kimblee!

Sorry you are having to wait...I know the anticipation is so hard.  Maybe shipping soon means they are packing/labeling it and getting ready to send it right out!

I just had to say hi...I saw your Spring Awakening pic and I love that play!  Just bought tix for the Tampa show!   :D

Gator reader...probably a dumb question...but are you affiliated with the University of Florida?

I had mine a month and would absolutely buy it again!  Now I wish I could afford to get one for my husband, my mom, and my daughters!!  (Then they might understand more when I keep wanting to slip away to read!)

A name will eventually come to you or perhaps I should say your Kindle will let you know. I kept writing down a name everytime I would think of one, the very first was Serenity but that was already taken. I had a lengthy list of names & went with Ruby. It just fits.

You are right...I was just getting impatient to find the perfect name... 

I have thought of Shalom....because I find such a wonderful sense of peace when I curl up with my Kindle, or Maggie (for Mary Magdalene who was such a great independent woman)...but I am still very open to suggestions!

All the church reponses are so interesting!  

Sandypeach, what church are you at?  I went to Emory for my M.Div. and know a lot of the churches up there.  Oh, and we do have a traditional service too...but in our neighborhood that is the less attended service. church is full of "recovering Catholics"!   ;)  I think that's one of the biggest groups we have. sounds like you are truly using the gifts God gave you to reach out to so many people...many who may never have found their way to you in the church.  I will pray for you are a blessing to many, I'm sure!

Where is your church located? Sounds very interesting!!

I'm in Jacksonville, Florida.  Where are you?

Are you needing a male name or female, Spiritdancer?

Hmmm...I was thinking a female name...but now that you ask, I'm not sure if I'm set on one or another.   ??? Perhaps gender hasn't been decided for sure yet!

I am the pastor of a United Methodist Church.  Sailor...I totally get where you are coming can be so hard to work within "the system"...especially as a woman pastor. ;)   I am fortunate in that I was sent to start a new United Methodist church a few years ago and it is fun and comtemporary and casual...and I can do sermon series like "God and the Beatles", "Gilligan's Island and the Seven Deadly Sins", "The X-Files of God"...

It's so cool to read about what everyone does!  Feels like we're all sitting around a coffee shop getting to know one another!

That looks like the perfect solution for taking my Kindle in the bath!!  I have added it to my Amazon wishlist for Christmas.  Thanks for the tip!

Isobella Bird sounds like a great match for you!

I need help naming mine too!  Mine goes with me everywhere...contains many different genres (but is hooked on the Southern Vampire Mysteries lately)...and she is used every week to hold my notes for my sermon as I preach (which is a wonderful bonus that I had not even thought of when I first bought my Kindle!).  My cat, Sophie, is very jealous of my Kindle and doesn't like anything that takes attention away from her!

Thanks for any thoughts you might have!

This looks like the perfect group for me!  I am in the middle of the 2nd Southern Vampire book...and yes, I am addicted to the Outlander series.  It's so cool to hear everyone's thoughts on the books we love.   :)

Thanks so much DecalGirl!

Hi Leslie,

Thanks!  Great would be nice to have a copy of everything in one easy place.

Sounds perfect!  I definitely have my list made up for all the places I want to be sure I see now.  My Kindle and I (because I don't seem to be able to go anywhere without it now!) will have a blast exploring.

Thank you for all your help!!

Wow! many good ideas!   :D  I will definitely try a fish taco and avoid Mexico.  I've been to San Diego before, but always for a conference and never with much time to explore.  The Hotel Del sounds cool and the beach...will have to take a walk on it!

I've been to the zoo...but not to the Wild Animal Park.  Is that worth the trip?  How about Sea World...mostly for kids, or good for adults too?

Just reading all your suggestions - I am so excited!  Thanks for all the great ideas!

Yogini2 - I'm not sure what I'm looking for!  I guess things like eclectic artsy shopping, places that are good to wander and explore.

My Kindle and I are visiting San Diego next week!  I've noticed that there are several people here from southern CA - any suggestions on restaurants or things I "must do" while I'm there?   :)

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (and the rest of the series as well) is amazing!!  

I have to agree Spritdancer! Her books are amazing and though they are intimidating because of their size, the pages seem to fly by  :P I am partway through the fourth book so far. I do hope she continues the series beyond the sixth book, not to mention the Lord John "spin off".

She is working on the next book as we speak!  She says hopefully it will come out Fall 2009, and also that it is not the last one.  :)  And there are already several Lord John books too - Lord John and the Private Matter, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, and Lord John and the Hand of Devils.

I am reading The Shack and am enjoying the fresh perspective.

Mom of 4: I also "gave in" and read all of the Twlight Series. Book 2 was my least favorite but Books 3 & 4 completely made up for it.


The Shack was the first full book I read on my Kindle and I loved it!  My 2 daughters love the Twilight series, so I gave in too.  They are actually pretty good...but I agree, Book 2 was the toughest to get through.

Now I'm reading The Reincarnationist and really enjoying it!  Love the free books...what a great way to stumble on great new books.

It's so great to see everyone here from the Amazon forum.  Feels like a family reunion (the good kind) ;)  If it weren't for all of you and your encouragement a few weeks ago I might not have taken the leap and ordered my Kindle.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  Now I am completely attached...I am never anywhere without it.  Still wrestling with the name though...maybe Maggie...

I made my way over from the Amazon boards.  (I am KA Cott over there) I saw Leslie's suggestion that we make our way over to this board.  It's great to find a place to share our love of Kindles and enjoy great conversation.

I look forward to getting to know everyone!
