Hi!  I've been lurking around here for a few days and just started posting yesterday.  I saw my first Kindle last night -- I arranged a meeting with a local teacher to see one (it was more amazing than I'd imagined!!) and I just ordered my own Kindle this morning!!  I'm very excited, but know I need to be patient since I have an estimated delivery date between February 27 & March 10.  Hopefully it'll ship much sooner, as several people have noted here recently.

A little bit about myself...  I'm a 32 year old gadget nut who also loves to read, so the Kindle is the best of both worlds for me!  I have tons of books, so many so that it makes moving a giant pain.  I currently live in an apartment, but will be moving in w/my fiance when we get married in a few months.  The fewer books/bookcases he has to help me move, the happier he'll be -- and me too, since I'm a bit of a control freak and have to pack all of the books myself.

I'm so glad I found KindleBoards -- talk about a font of knowledge!

Welcome MeganW - glad to have you here.  Vampyre has some great websites for dtb to be sent to our troops if you are interested in getting rid of some of your books, makes it easier to move.  I am slowly replacing all my favs with kindle books.

Happy Reading

That is a great idea about donating books to the troops! I'll definitely look into it.

Thanks!
Megan

MeganW,

Congratulations on your pending Kindlehood and marriage and welcome to Kindleboards!

You can start ordering books now, you know, and accessories.  We have plenty of suggestions for both in the Book Corner and in Accessories!

Thank you for both, Betsy!

I've been downloading some classics to replace my DTBs from sites like Feedbooks.com and ManyBooks.net today. So far I'm up to 66 free books! And I've ordered some free books to try out from Amazon.

Next up is ordering the not-so-free books and the accessories! I already have a wood grain skin, the Rosewood, picked out from DecalGirl, and I'm trying to figure out which Oberon case to get: World Tree or Avenue of Trees (to match my DecalGirl skin!). I've been doing my accessories research in the Accessories board, and will shift over to the Book Corner board to get some good recommendations.

You will find so many free books that you really won't have to pay for books for a very long time.  I just tried reading one last night that I paid for, true not much, but it was not nearly as good as some of the freebies so I quit.  AND freebies will be recommended here so you can spend more money on accessories.

Vampyre is so full of good stuff - suggestions - suggestions - so don't hesitate to ask.  ::)

MeganW, 

Welcome Aboard!

Kindles tend to generate love at first sight  ;D  Glad you decided to order one.

Looks like you are preparing well for your Kindle with having a skin & ordering an Oberon cover. 

You will find *plenty* of recommendations in the Book Corner.  Do sign up for one of the book clubs - paperbacks are just fine!

Cheers,

Marci

Thanks everyone!  I'm pretty excited.  It'll be so great to have my entire library (or a great deal of it anyway) right at my fingers.  I was just thinking about that today when I was hauling around a copy of the 2nd Twilight book, New Moon, from my house to work.  Once my Kindle arrives, I'll have it in my purse all the time, and it won't feel like I'm carting a heavy book around!

And I'll go check out the book clubs.  I'm in the middle of two books right now and need to finish those before I can think about any others.  However, I did notice that Dead Until Dark was the book for January.  I read it and the 2nd book in the series right before True Blood premiered on HBO.  Interesting books...  I could probably hop in on that one.
