Hi from South Florida. I first got interested in the Kindle last fall when my mother-in-law asked me about it because of Oprah. At the time, we both decided to hold off on getting one. Recently, I started thinking that I'd like one for my upcoming birthday and started researching them again to see if anything had changed. I finally placed my order on Friday and I'm (im)patiently wait for it to arrive. Now how to tell the husband that I already ordered my birthday present...
