Hello,

Just registered for the boards and wanted to say "Hi!" I've been pining for a kindle since it was released and my family finally got one for me as a joint gift this Christmas... just in time for them to be sold out. :D I totally respect Oprah, but now I randomly get annoyed whenever I see her picture.

I'm a little sad to have missed the Kindle 1 and the first adopter title, but I am sure I will love my Kindle, no matter what size or shape. And I will try not to let it get a complex about not having an SD card, poor thing.

A little about me: I love reading. Mostly stuff that will rot my brain like sci-fi, fantasy, romance, etc. A 4 book week is a happy week. I used to have 500+ paperbacks in the house (much to the dismay of the husband) but I gave them to my sister when she went on maternity leave and have been buying ebooks on my PC ever since. Hopefully they convert well.

I am converting from hardcopy to Kindle to 1) save space; and 2) prevent my son, who is three, from getting an early education from my racier romance novels when he learns how to read. *grin* Sadly, it is not for the financial reasons and... yes... I have bought an $18 ebook and yes... I will probably buy an $18 Kindle book if it happens to be by JR Ward or JD Robb. Although I will feel ashamed the whole time.  :-X

I have to say thank you to all the really helpful people on this board who have helped me learn about kindle, accessories, etc., even though you didn't know I was watching. I am 100% more excited about my Kindle now than I was 2 months ago, and have been thanking my family constantly as well. I have an Oberon cover pre-ordered, I feel like I am stalking the Strangedog website, and I've already been buying and applying gift cards to my account for my 7 page wishlist. I am SO ready.

Oh Paks - are you ever in for a treat! We have two sci-fi / romance/ fantasy authors that are members of the KB that I know of. I know there are lots of authors here. Be sure and get In Her Name and Distant Cousin (a trilogy) and you will be one happy gal. There is another that I have not read but have, but when you go to the Book Klubs you will find all kinds of recommendations.
Welcome!

Welcome, Paks!  I can relate as KindleBoards.com surely pushed my patience for Kindle to where I caved and got an eBay Kindle 1 thus cancelling K2.  No worries though, I love Sookie as I am sure that you will love your K2 (name?)

Looking forward to your delivery day story.  I think that there will be loads of those this week...  :D
