Hi everyone!

A twitter-bug told me about this board  :)
I just got my kindle three days ago. At the time I ordered, it was on a three week wait. Last I checked, it was up to thirteen!

I love kindle!

My story:
Years ago, I was a voracious reader. Time, family, illness, and "life stuff" started taking my reading time away. I have a great appreciation for "real" books. I love the feel of the paper, the smell of an antique book. There are SOME books that are must haves in my house. There always will be. BUT, a great majority of books aren't ones that I "need" to see on a bookshelf.

Now, in a small handheld compact unit, I can conveniently purchase, read and store all I need. INSTANT GRATIFICATION is sometimes a very good thing, LOL. I don't have to worry about a trip to the bookstore in the mall, ragged pages if I want to take a book on the go. All the "complications" of reading are now gone.

On my first day, my television sat black. I read. All day. First book finished in 48 hours. If feels great to read again.

Not to sound too sappy (it's just not my style, LOL)....but:
Kindle has given the gift of reading back to me.

Thanks for the introduction, Iamc, and congratulations on your Kindle!  You're going to fit in very well with this bunch of voracious, instant gratification loving readers!  And don't forget Accessories to find a gift for your Kindle!

Thanks for coming over here, I wanted you to get a warm welcome from all the nice folks. I think the Kindle has given many of us the gift of reading back.

Happy Kindling!

Welcome Aboard, Iamc  :)

I enjoyed your introduction & did not find it to be the least bit sappy!

Glad to hear you have bonded with your Kindle and are enjoying it so much.

Feel free to poke around these boards, and do take a look at the Book Club corner as
there is lots of fund stuff going on there.

Welcome.  Jump in and enjoy the boards.  It does sap away some of your kindling time though.
