Sorry to hear about the unemployment situation. Is there a silver lining to this cloud? Are you getting to read more on your Kindle?Kindle Convert said:I did hear about the nekkid Kindle, but mine are covered and always have been! I even got rid of that pesky Amazon label on my K2 cover (used my P-touch and created a "metal" label with my name. Now it looks like an semi-expensive day planner! LOL! I was in the Mortgage Business (back room...not a big-bad broker) so recently found my self unemployed and have to watch all my pennies these days. Believe me...I'd be in there buying with the rest of you, but the future, as of now, is uncertain, so I spend my $$$ on books instead.
