Hi, everyone! I am glad to have found a community of fellow Kindlers! I am a PhD student and a bookworm. My Kindle was a belated Christmas present. It was ordered as a K1, but by the time it shipped it was a K2. I love it. I've filled it with great literature classics for free, and I have purchased some newer novels. I even found a required textbook for one of my doctoral seminars available for the Kindle. I find that I can read on my Kindle for hours and hours at a time. I made a custom cover for it and have posted pictures in the accessories forum. It's only been a month, but already I cannot imagine life without an e-book reader!
