I got my Kindle a year ago and I just found this forum through Amazon's Kindle Forum.  I love my Kindle and have over 400 books downloaded.  One day I bought so many books my credit card security department called me and asked if I made all those purchases.  I told them "yes" and after that they didn't call again.

There's so many great things about having the Kindle.  Regular books take up so much space and need to be dusted.  I like the larger font and the newspaper print is easy on the eyes.  I like being able to search the web through my Kindle and to send myself email. 

My sister Debbie lives in Texas.  We like a lot of the same books.  I bought her a Kindle and kept the account under my name.  So she has access to all of my books.

Long live the Kindle!

Welcome.  Smart thing you and your sister have done.  I can't do that with mine...our tastes are too varied.  We are neighbors (sort of) I'm in RI.  Enjoy your Kindle...it's BETTER than sliced bread.

Welcome to the Kindleboards, Avalon!

You'll probably enjoy our Book Corner, free books, bargain books, and members' favorites! Plus we're going to have book clubs starting in January!

Doh! Now everybody knows where Springfield is! :mad:
Only one of many. There are 35 states with a Springfield in them. ;D

I still think the Simpsons are from Springfield, IL. I don't care who won the contest. ;D

Well, you know.... in the movie, we discover that Springfield's "mystery state" is bordered by Ohio, Nevada, Kentucky and Maine. ;)

Thanks to everyone here for the warm welcome. I hope this forum continues to grow.
Both my sister and I were born in San Antonio, TX. Yes, I told my sister in Texas about the Kinde Board and I sent her the link. I have a daughter who lives in Springfield, MO and a girlfriend in Springfield, Oregon.

Of all the Springfield's in the US Springfield, MA is largest in population and then Springfield, MO.

When my husband took his boards for his RDCS we were living in Springfield, IL. He show up at the appointed time and they didn't have his name. Come to find out they had registered him to take the test in Springfield, MA. He didn't make it for his appointed time. ;D

They are all nice small cities. I think Springfield, IL was around 115,000 when I lived there.

That's funny! Although I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time. I'm going to sound stupid here and ask what RDCS stands for.
