I have had my Kindle since May, was one of the ones who had to wait a couple of months on backorder...that was torture, checking my email every 5 minutes to see if I had a shipping notice and the day it arrived was sheer bliss! I have always loved to read, spending late nights under the covers as a child with a flashlight, then as an adult most of my reading time was after my 3 kids had gone to bed or on days off from the hospital (nurse). My Kids are all grown and I am a very proud "Granna" to a five year old boy. I have some health issues that keep me still these days and I read my Kindle..and read ...and read. LOVING the Kindle! I am currently in NC outside of Greensboro, get 5 bars, and I also have a home in Ft Lauderdale Fl. and get 5 bars there too. Haven't had any problems with my Kindle,(knocking on wood, crossing fingers toes and eyes). I had an issue when the NY times sent a bad file in Sunday edition but it was resolved quickly. I read everything... fiction, non fiction, all different genres, depends on my mood! Well...I am really glad to meet you all and I am sure we will talk again soon.
