Tuesday night I ordered a Kindle 3G with special offers. In the interest of thrift I had it shipped Super Saver. I was expecting to get it next Tuesday or Wednesday. The package tracking website says it's out for delivery. Before the holiday weekend. I had planned to spend the entire 3-day weekend worrying about when my Kindle would arrive. Now it appears I'll have to read instead. I'm really bummed... ;)

Wow.  That is a bummer. ;D

Though, there is something inherently enjoyable about "KindleWatch".  At least you'll have today to fret!

That's rough.

You could practice a bit of Stoicism and put the package unopened, in a closet somewhere and not open it 'til... nah!

Look at it this way, you should be eligible for the $30 Lighted Cover offer (50% off). That offer can be claimed until midnight on the 28th.

But just think, now you can play with it all weekend and this gives you much more time to spend money adding books to it. ;D

Kindle was on my porch before 11 am. I alleviated the hurt and anger I felt by taking advantage of the 50% off lighted cover deal. I feel much better now that I am waiting for the cover to ship!!  ;)

Thanks for the funny thread! I had gotten the K3, 3G with the $25.00 coupon last month. I would have loved that deal  for the cover. Anyway, I had also ordered my father the K3, wifi SO before I ordered mine. I ordered mine at night & the next day, when I spotted the Amazon box, I had thought that it was my father's. He opens the box, & it's a white kindle. It took me a beat to realize that mine arrived 1st, overnight. My father's arrived the next day, just 1 day early for his Birthday. My father was so excited just to wait until the next day for his kindle, since it was a surprise. I had to track it"s location for him.
