I'm the SO of mom133d and since she had ordered the K2 and all it means that I get one or the other of the fun little machines.  Just figured I should say hey before scanning around at the other threads.

Welcome, Harm!

Go nuts, man. You'll be amazed at the odd, fun stuff you find in the corners of this place.

I hope you have half as much fun here as I have had--or even more!

Thanks folks.  I'm sure I'll enjoy the Kindle and the boards here.  My issue is that while I have in the past been a fairly avid reader, over the years I have tapered off a bit and rarely "read" now.  I have and audible subscription due to my hour long commute (one way) to work.  I love being able to listen to the books being read but I do miss picking up a book like I have in the past.

That said, I'm going to start off slow.  I'll test out the text-to-speech on the K2 and see if that helps segue me into actually reading a bit more.  The nicest thing I can think of for the Kindle is that I can pick it up and put it down easily.  It's got to be easier than lugging around that full hardback of the Lord of the Rings books and such that I've read and re-read in the past.

I also look forward to experiementing with the device.  I'm a digital artist/designer for a casino game company so I spend quite some time making art for devices  I am hoping to have fun seeing what I can get to work on the Kindle...both art related as well as documents.

Hi Harm - nice to have you here, you'll be able to utiilize your new K2 with the text to speech on your long commutes when you cannot drive.  But we will want feedback on how you like it, and you will start reading a lot again  8)

Welcome Harm.  You will enjoy it here.  My DH is getting a Kindle in the same way, I ordered a second.  I'm not sure I will be able to get him to the board or not, even though he will often ask how my kindle board friends are doing.

Enjoy!

Harm cool avatar, I luv it, that's the image of my next tattoo, I'm obsessed with Egypt and the meaning of the Eye of Horus is so cool. 8)
sorry I'm OT :-[
No worries...me saying hi was the topic ;)

The image is a vector recreation of one of my tattoos. I have that one on my left forearm and the inverse on my right. I too am an Egypt Obsessive.

My moniker (board name) is actually one of the forms of Horus...this is the Ram-headed Sphinx that is considered to be the keeper of wisdom.

Glad to have like mined people here.
