That might be fun and I might actually get to finally see a Kindle in the wild other than my own!!  ;D

So that would be Saturday, June 6 @ 10am at your local Starbucks or other local coffee shop? I would be willing.

I'd do it. 
The local one on 25th and Western in San Pedro would be nice.  Then off to the park to watch the waves and read in direct sunlight.  :eek:

Just read about this national day, anyone can join.. Anywhere all over the country at their own local Starbucks and/or Local coffee shop.

They are trying to get it rolling and set up, you might run into other Kindlers or you may not but it's a neat fun idea that I would love to see gain some attention.

read more about it at the link below

Well, as it happens, I am showing my Kindle to a local person at a coffee shop today!

I think this is a great idea.

Saturday, June 6th, 10 am. There are several Starbucks here in Portland, Maine. I like the one in the Old Port but there you have to deal with parking. The one on Forest Avenue has a parking lot so that might be easier. And no, I am not going to the Starbucks at the rest stop on the turnpike!

Any Mainers here who want to chime in?

That actually sounds like a pretty fun idea. Providing it wasn't too much of a trek, I would definitely be interested.

A fun idea  --  and there are at least four SBX within five miles of me, so that's easy!

I certainly won't be able to do it.

They actually erected a building about a hundred yards from my house that was going to be a SBX, but it never opened.

Since I haven't been able to drive for over 25 years for medical reasons, going to any one that is not within walking distance is not practical.

That's ok Bruce, I don't have a Starbucks anywhere near me at all - in fact don't even have a coffee shop closer than the airport, maybe I'll just take a cup of coffee outside and sit on the curb with my kindle!  ;)

Wow....that could be hard in Vegas. Just driving the five-six miles to school I pass eight Starbucks. I live across the street from two and a McCafe. Then there are two family owned cafes, two McCafes and a Coffee bean along the same route. (and my mom wonders why i can't kick my caffeine habits)

If it did end up being in Vegas, that would be perfect for me. I've been meaning to go vacation there anyway, and the weather has certainly been right for it.

I was just thinking, we could have a chat that could start at 10 am on June 6th, for those folks who are not near a Starbucks or can't get to one. Don't Starbucks have wireless? I could bring my computer and join the chat from onsite.

This could be fun!

If it wasn't a 2+ hour drive I would love too!!
I thought people in Texas didn't think twice about driving 2 hours...wide open spaces and all that. ;) ;)

I think that's a great idea Leslie. . . . .I am trying to figure out where there is a Starbucks somewhere fairly nearby. . . .I almost never go to them so I have to think where I've seen one.

Hey, DC folks. . . we can talk about this at our Kindleklatsch on Thursday WEDNESDAY (the 27th) and see if we want to descend en masse on any particular store. . . .
