I had time to read at lunch at lunch. I then got called away.  Now I am home and realized my kindle is still at my desk at work  :mad:  Oh so sad. I will be happy to see it in the morning.

I have my work checklist: laptop computer in bag, check; iPhone in pocket, check; Kindle in purse, check.

Then I can leave.

I left my Kindle at the office once and turned around and drove back downtown to retrieve it. I haven't made that mistake since!

Someone posted on Amazon (way back when) that she left her Kindle at her desk on a Thursday night and had to wait until Monday morning to get it back. She had no way of getting in the building for three days. She almost went crazy!

I did the same thing... I left Ramona at work on my desk, got half way home (30 minute drive) before I noticed my mistake, and turned around and went back for her. It was a Tuesday I think, so I didn't even have the threat of the weekend hanging over my head, and I still went back for her. There are some things I just can't do without-Ramona is one of them.

Oh Sylvia, I'm so sorry to hear that. You must just be beside yourself. It's kind of like the first time you leave your newborn baby. I hope the time goes quickly for you.

ha ha, that one is funny. I always say that I don't make many mistakes, I just make really big ones.

Oh man, I hope it is still there. Small electronics left on desks where I work get stolen. :(

:D  all is together again. I  am one of two paid part time ---librarians. I have the help of 12-15 volunteers.  my desk is in back. population less then 400. 46 kids in school k-12. I was not concerned with safety. no one here has much to say about my Kindle. I have also gotton the responce of -and you are the librarian?.  many see it as a betrayal of sorts.  I see it as an easy way to get books without shipping. the hazard for my kindle is bicycle in  summer and the elements all year (rain, snow and all between). there is no other bookstore or school library without getting in a plane.

I am happily back to reading "Dragonfly in Amber" by Gabaldon recommended here on the kindleboards  ;D

I take my Kindle to work, also.  Tonight as I walked off the elevator to leave the building, I realized my Kindle was still on my desk.  I would hate my baby to spend a cold lonely night on a desk in a dark room, so pressed the "up" button to Kindle in my purse to go home.  Can't imagine having to spend an evening without Kindle.

Sylvia, that sounds like the town where I grew up. People either love or hate Kindles. The message I hear from you is that you are willing to look a things in a new light and try something new. Kindle does save you money and is a very compact way to store books. The ability to change font size is not only wonderful, but necessary for me. There will always be those people who look at it as a betrayal instead of a tool. They felt the same way about automobiles.
