I KNEW not going out for coffee this morning would work out for the best!!! I just got my Kindle!!!  I ordered it through eBay and it was sent through snail mail.  The last time I had checked the USPS website it said that it left Jacksonville yesterday (I'm in Orlando and it was coming from Massachusetts)... so I thought for sure it wouldn't be here until next week.  But just to be cautious I didn't go out to get coffee and breakfast at Panera (I like to go with my laptop but now I can go with my Kindle!).  And sure enough it was literally just delivered by USPS.... okay so now I am going to stop typing and go open my box!!!!! :)

Congrats dirdir! I was in your exact shoes 2 days ago, when my eBay'd Kindle arrived (and today, I purchased a 2nd one for Mrs. r0b0d0c, so she'll be going through this in 4-6 days!)

Carefully opening the Kindle box, checking the contents and removing the protective films, plugging the Kindle in, firing it up, connecting via Whispernet for the first time .... AHHHHHH, it brings back memories!

Enjoy!!!!!

Cool!  You're like me, when something makes it to Jacksonville, the next stop is my house.  I live the other direction though, up in GA.

Hope everything is good with it and you have a great weekend with your new best friend.

My heart actually stopped. I saw the post title and with all the reports of credit card charges and shipping status changes, I thought you were talking about the Kindle 2. Don't scare me like that!

But congratulations! ;D

I also received mine this week from ebay. I had to make a special trip to the post office cause I just missed her. It was worth the extra gas ;D.

I got him all dressed up and new screensavers loaded (plus all the books that I ordered ahead of time). All I need now is a cup of hot chocolate and blanket and you won't see me until Monday morning!! ;D

Congrats! It's so hard waiting for things to come in the mail. Well, you'll never have to wait for books again now that you have a Kindle!

Don't make me sic PETA on you! I'll do it! Cats are wonderful, beautiful creatures! I also like dogs and most other animals.

I also think PETA is like this post, a big joke.

Congrats on the new Kindle!  You're going to absolutely love it.

And how did I miss the thread on the Snuggie!  Now I have to go searching.  ;D

I'm new to posting here, but I was lurking for months before that.    :-[

I think I was trying to stay out of the Accessories threads!  Of course, I failed miserably and am now waiting on an Oberon cover and 2 new skins.   ;D

I searched and can't find it.
