My name is Jamie, and I received my first Kindle (K2) in April. It was a little birthday present I got for myself. :) And it arrived just in time for me to download a ton of books and take it with me for my five week vacay to Korea. It's exactly what I wanted. I'm in love (with no plans to get the DX).
I didn't have a case, though. The one I wanted (the M-Edge with the stand) would have arrived while I was out of the country, so I decided against getting it. Instead, I used a Coach purse bag (the flimsy cloth bag that holds the Coach purse). It worked fine against scratches, but I just couldn't bump it against anything for fear of breaking it. Very stressful.

So now I've decided against the M-Edge all together and am debating between the Mivizu in the red croc or the purple Noreve. Good thing I don't have any other trips I have to take for a while! This could take some time.  ::)

As far as favourite books, I love classical books. Russian authors are a favourite of mine. I also love reading about theoretical physics (for the pedestrian). Michio Kaku is really good with that and Neil deGrasse Tyson's books are fantastic. I also enjoyed Mitch Albom's books, well the three that I read I enjoyed. That surprised me as I usually don't enjoy the current popular books.
An example of that: I'm not a fan of Dan Brown or James Patterson (tried and hated).

What else? Oh, I'm 24. I suppose that's all. :D I love this forum, and I can't believe it's taken me this long to find it!

Welcome Addie, I am pretty new to this forum as well.  Good luck with deciding on a cover, it can be difficult given all the choices, believe me I know.  The more you use the Kindle the more you will love it.

Thanks for the welcome! It's so hard. I love and hate that there are so many choices. Now I can't decide if I want to get a skin with a case or a skin with a cover or just a cover ... this is definitely going to take forever.  ::)

Thanks for all the helpful links! Why do I get the feeling you're trying to have me glued to my laptop all day?  ;D I'll definitely check all those out. Just like everyone else here, I'm a bookworm.

Hi! Thanks for the welcome!

I'm already deep in book review after book review after book review! It's a sickness.

I'm living in San Antonio. I travel to Austin a lot, though. Can't get enough of that city!  ;D

I love Dallas ... except when it comes to the traffic. ;D The lack of traffic is one of the things I really love about San Antonio ... and the fantastic food. Yum.
