Honestly, I had not even heard of a Kindle except in passing, my sister mentioned she thought she wanted one for Christmas but when her husband went to order it for her the backorder was too long.

Then, a week ((Still can't believe that's all it was) ago I went to Amazon, looked around, explored the forum just a bit, saw the link here, came, ordered.

Then, the big announcement......... now I'm coming here every day after work. I can't STAND it, I go ahead and take advantage of the used Kindles being sold.
(It should be here soon. Please.........)

I start coming here during lunch at the office. Pretty soon I'm checking in.......just a quick peek, mind you, I certainly would not waste work time.........
I'm visiting every night.............staying up late just reading here................ running behind in the mornings because I just have to see what I might have missed in the past few hours...........

Today, I swear, I must have spent at least six hours on this site.

Even without my Kindle here yet, I have somehow become obsessed with something I have only seen in pictures.

I have a list (well, okay then, a catalog) of books I intend to download first. I have, I feel sure, increased by a thousand the hits on any Kindle accessory site on the Web. If I were to join the all book klubs that interest me I would have to quit my job and clone myself to keep up.

And, I haven't even gotten mine yet.

You guys are killing me!!

(I love it here)

LOL. It can go two ways when you get your kindle:
1. You divert this addiction to your new K.
2. You send just as much or more time here and still spend time with K

I'm number 2

I totally agree with the original poster!  I am obsessed with checking this site... I've spent countless hours on it... I should be finishing my last hardcover book before my kindle comes in, but I'm reading this site instead!

Bailey - welcome to the asylum. We are all a little(?) passionate when it comes to our Kindles. Now that you are one of us, all of your normal friends will think your nuts, but you will fit in here just fine. Just watch out for Bacardi Jim. ;D

Welcome to the Klub, many of us here suffer from the same addiction.  And there's a good chance that when it gets closer to your delivery date, you will be spending even more time here.  Everyone here will help you through it (by telling you about all the accessories you can buy) and wait with you and chuckle a little knowing that every time a truck drives through your neighborhood you will be at the door looking for that big brown truck.  

And when your baby Kindle arrives your addiction to KindleBoards will not diminish.  Even though you'll want to be reading on your new little gadget, you will be here talking about how wonderful it is, asking questions, giving advice, and generally bullsh*ting.  

I went through it with my Anabel K (my K1) and now I'm going through it with my K2.  

Hello, my name is Kim and I'm a KB addict.

Ive been a registered user for 2 days........slightly less than actually and already I've logged 11 hours 32 minutes on this site.........somehow I wish It DIDN'T tell me that because now I know just how addicted I really am!!!

I could claim I'm patiently waiting for my K2.......but in reality I'm pulling out my own hair in anticipation and the kindle boards are an attempt to keep me sane!

Wow!  I seriously thought I was alone in this.  I couldn't imagine how it's going to be when we get our Kindle 2s.  It's going to be insane!

Oh, good. You've made me feel SO much better! I joined yesterday and I'm already up to four hours and something. Now I don't feel so bad!

And yeah, I wish that little statistic weren't there . . . .

Oh. My. Gosh.! What if it comes while we are at work? It'll be all alone, here, on the porch. Possibly ALL DAY LONG!!!!!!!

That's it. I'm calling in sick until it arrives.

Priorities, you know.

Anju - ain't that the truth! There just isn't enough time in the bloody day. I don't spend as much time on the boards as I'd like to, don't have enough time to read much new stuff (although I'm catching up on Outlander - did you hear that, Gertie?), *and* don't have time to write any new stuff. Need more hours in the day for Kindling - it would be a lot easier if we didn't have to worry about this barbaric custom called "work"... ;D

Trust me, you guys aren't alone, there are lots of us addicts around here.

If it weren't for this board I would have to drive to amazon and take them all hostage until they gave me my K2, or until my meds kicked in and returned the illusion of normalcy that is my life, waiting for IT to arrive.
