Hello to all. I received my Kindle 2 for Mother's Day and
am loving it. Our library system has largely turned into a
homework and media center and I had been complaining that
it was no longer fun to browse there since the amount of
books has dwindled significantly this past year. In addition, large print
books are getting pretty scarce . My kind hearted son really
surprised me with such a wonderful gift. What a treat to be able
to enlarge the font :D

I run a small medical billing service here in Central Ohio (not
a very exciting way to make a living but I've been doing it
for over 30 years now) and other than books, my other great
love is for cats, particularly Siamese (Meezers). I have three
of them and they are the most delightful fellows! I collect
antique and collectible cat figurines as well so I guess I'm
well on my way to becoming a "crazy cat lady".

This seems like a great place and I can't wait to see what
books other folks like.

Best Mother's Day gift in years!

Marcia, the "Meezer Mom"

Welcome Marcia. My oldest daughter is also a Marcia. We have always called her Marcy. What a wonderful Mother's Day gift. Every once in a while our children can really surprise us. My children gave me my Kindle for Christmas. :)

Marcia, so glad you found the Boards.  What a great son you have.  I have discovered a bunch of new authors because of the great folks here sharing about their favorite books.  I'm sure you'll be just as pleased as I have been.
I look forward to reading more of your posts.
