I have had my Kindle since May and its like velcro to me.  (Worse then my Brussels Griffon, well almost).  Seldom is my Moneypit out of sight.
I just got back from an 8 day cruise and I thought "At last I will have all the time in the world to read"...  WRONG.  So many people came up to me to see my Kindle and ask questions.  The funniest was in the buffet.  The gal that was cleaning up was from the Ukraine and she was
amazed.  Suddenly I was surrounded by several attendants looking at this new American device.  She reads alot and she has one suitcase just full of books.  She was excited.  glad I could make her day. 
I thought I would see more kindles on the cruise but mine was the only one I came up. 
Anyway, I own my own business from which I am retiring in March so I will have nothing by time on my hands.
I am a third generation San Franciscan whose has migrated to San Jose (about 45 miles south).
I am hoping to be able to post more as time goes by.

Welcome crosj! And yes the Kindle sure can be a money pit, one click to buy a new book is far too easy! People sure do like to look at the Kindle, both my boyfriend and I have had people come up to us to ask us what it was. :)

Welcome, Crosj & Moneypit!

I like your description of Moneypit being like velcro!  Mine (Eleanor) is hardly ever far from me!

Welcome crosj - I am truly surprised that you only saw one kindle - Money Pit - but there are lots of free books out there that are very well written.  This is a great bunch of folks so glad to have you join us.

Hello, Crosj -

Your Kindle is well-named!  I can certainly relate  ::)

Glad to have you here & I hope to see more of your posts in the coming months.

Take a look at the book club section, you might find a book to join in when you can.

Cheers,

Marci
