The UPS box was waiting outside my door. The edge of the box was a bit banged up, which caused me to worry for a minute, but then I opened it up and saw how well protected everything was.

The box the actual Kindle comes in is GORGEOUS! Man, what a work of art. I expected a cool box from some of the comments I read here, but nothing prepared me for how awesome it was.

So, of course, I eagerly unwrapped my Kindle, plugged it in, and turned it on.

Nothing... Uh oh!

I was worried for a second, but after a minute, it thankfully booted up. *Whew* (Any idea why it takes so long initially?)

It immediately knew my name and had recommendations based on my tastes. Amazing!

The two free books I ordered and the one sample were sitting there waiting for me.

And the screen: WOW!

I am in love.

Letting it charge up now... I know I can use it while it's charging, but I hate being tied up to a cord.

Sorry for this completely unnecessary post, but I just HAD to share in my excitement!  ;D

CONGRATULATIONS CS!!! What do you mean 'unnecessary post'??? It is TOTALLY NECCESSARY. Your Kindle Joy is Our Kindle Joy. You can use Kindle while it is charging...FYI.

Welcome, CS!
I have two of the boxes here and can't bring myself to throw them out recycle them.
One of the hidden bonuses of Kindle ownership is access to the great Kindle community here- lots of fun and fellowship.

Congrats CS... I know this must have been an exciting day for you! I remember my first day, too. I was a bit concerned also when I turned it on for the first time and it took soooo long to boot up, but it now comes right up every time... not that it gets turned off much! Again, I am so happy for you! :D

I am in LOVE. I spent several hours last night reading a variety of things. I'm AMAZED by the screen. It does not look electronic AT ALL. As you can see from my signature, I already have several books. :)

I'm still trying to figure out the best way to hold it when I'm lying back in bed. Any suggestions?
