Hey everybody!

I found this forum through the Kindle Korner yahoo group! :)

I have been a Kindle abuser errm user since May 08. At first I was
pretty leery of the whole concept. But when I started reviewing books
last year in electronic format, I knew I needed to do something and
fast. So, I stimulated the economy (or amazon's economy) with our
stimulus check and purchased my first expensive gadget (outside of a
computer).

I have to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I still by occasional print
books, but for the most part I take everything electronically that I can.

I take it just about everywhere with me. It is interesting to see
people's reactions to it. They watch what I am doing, but don't say
anything for the most part. I have had several people ask outright
about it, and one lady was determined to buy one after actually seeing
mine and hearing how I felt about it. That was pretty cool!

There have only been one or two things that I haven't liked about it.
First when it freezes / crashes. It has only happened a handful of
times so it isn't too bad. The other is that I am using the hard back
cover that it comes with and it keeps coming off or pulling the back
off of the unit when I try to get it back on. The only other thing I
wish for is a back light, as I often read at night in the dark after
my DH goes to sleep. I do have a clip on light but it is pretty heavy!

I just realized that I can't get the whispernet to work in our new
house, which is in a fairly small town. I was able to take it to a
larger town the other day and get it to download my books. LOL
Other than those few minor things, I really love it.

I don't get a lot of downloads from amazon, but really use it more for
PDF files that authors/publishers send in. That being said, I have
only a slight clue as to all the features and what not the device
offers. ;)

If there was a way I could get one of these for all of our reviewers,
I would do it in a minute. (winning lotto numbers anybody? lol)

So, that is pretty much it about me. Oh, I live in Western KY (the
state not the jelly) and have 5 dogs a cat, a husband person and
kidlet. I run a paranormal fiction review site that takes up most of
my free time...okay all of my time and I like to read! ;)

Howdy and welcome to the forums. As a very new Kindle owner, I know how you feel, I guess. I love mine and think it's one of the best things I have ever bought.

I run a paranormal fiction review site that takes up most of
my free time...okay all of my time and I like to read
Ever read any Kim Harrison, Vicki Petterson or Charlaine Harris? They are some of my favorite authors. Vicki refers to her son as "kidlet".

If your Kindle has a name please share with us on Kindle Name Thread under Lets Talk Kindle. Some great stories there!
If it doesn't, just pretend to go along with them, they wont let up until you give in.

(just kidding)

Hey there,

I haven't named my Kindle, though I have noticed people posting threads about it. Not sure why/what the deal is there with naming. Sometimes I call it Kinnle does that count? lol

Yes, I just got done reading the ARC for Kim Harrison's White Witch, Black Curse (not on kindle), and it was awesome! I love Charlaine Harris and have not had a chance to read vicki's stuff yet.

You can check out my reviews to see some of what I have read this year if you want.

You will have to wade through the other site posts that I have up there to find them. Sorry about that. :)

We have a great discussion going at The Blood Bank about True Blood. Do you like the show?

You had a WWBC ARC...!!! will you adopt me?


On Vicki's forum, we watch True Blood while in chat. Jeaniene Frost hangs out with us there and Debi Meyer(I think that's her last name) is there to. She is Charlaine's proof reader or something like that. She works for/with Charlaine and is also working on a SVM character bible.

We all love the show. Sadly the last new for the season is Sunday.

LOL you automatically become adopted when you become a reviewer with the BBB. :)

That is awesome that you watch TB in chat. I don't think I could do both...well, I probably could, but dh would not appreciate out quality time being interrupted. LOL

This is a pretty cool forum. I have to lay down for awhile, I have a nasty cold that is getting the better of certain parts of me.

Can I borrow your ARC? Kim will vouch for me.
Hi, All -

I like all the book series mentioned here.

I'm curious about what Vampyre is asking about when he mentions the above?

Oh well, cant blame a rabidfanstalkingreader for trying. :)

I plan on going to see Kim on her WWBC tour in Charlotte. I had a good time last year at her Outlaw signing.

I have a serious case of ARC envy!!! :eek: 
I can boast of an arc of the new Honor Harrington that should be getting to me very soon - unfortunately the e-ARC will be out about the same time (sometime next week) so it won't be THAT much of an impressive accomplishment except that mine will be free.  ;D
