I sold my Kindle 1 today  :'( , but I'm getting my Kindle 2 next week  :) !!!  Man, I feel naked without my Kindle.  I think I'm gonna have to take a Kindle Hiatus, or I'm going to turn myself in to a Psychiatric Hospital.  Be patient, me, be patient.  It will arrive next week.  Where's my Kindle?!?  :mad:

OMG--you're brave. There's no way I could sell my Kindle before I got my new one!

Exactly how I feel! I still have a death grip on mine. I couldn't live a day without it anymore. With the newspaper coming to me everyday, and my magazines, plus a good read every night... Give it up? Nope. No thank you.

I've been without my Kindle for a week or so now and I don't know what to do with myself either! It seems to me, although I may be wrong, that if you're planning on selling your Kindle (at least on eBay), the prices are going down each day. Might want to sell sooner than later?

It's not the 25th yet, could we expedite ourselves to that date, though?
Apparently, we'll be drinking margaritas to get us through.

And I have to admit, it's not as bad for me because I do have the use of my daughter's Kindle and plenty of audiobooks on my ipod to see me through. I also downloaded several of the free Harlequin books to try out the ipod touch ereader app. We'll make it and it will be worth the wait.

I've been waiting since December, so I feel your pain. But on the other hand, this is my first Kindle, so I can't really miss something I've never had. I can't even imagine having a Kindle and THEN being without one! Hang in there!

That was my concern too, which is why I went ahead and sold it right away. It has been weird but I did have a pile of books I had long forgotten and I pulled out one of those. I chose a hard bound, x-library book, I bought used on Amazon, that is not available in a kindle edition. I have to admit, I love the crinkly noise of the plastic library binding. I can not think of a sound that I enjoy more than that. Still it is heavy and cumbersome and my cat does not like it much since I need both hands to read it and he does not get the attention he has come to expect, while I am reading.

Only 8 more days! It is tough but exciting too! Like the waiting for Santa buzz we had as kids, so rare these days.

Count me in the empathetic crowd.  Sold mine on the 10th.  It's been just about the longest week and one day (yes, I am counting) of my life.  But considering the way prices are going down on the K1's, I'm forcing myself to accept my situation and be grateful I sold it when it it nearly paid for my K2.

...still depressed though...sigh...

Luv, didn't you bribed your daughter with an Oberon cover so you could use her Kindle until your K2 arrives? It probably was cheaper then the number of margaritas needed to get you through your Kindle withdrawl.

Yes, but I still don't get to use it as much as I like (can't take it with me when I leave the house)

And like stargazer, I'm happy I sold it when I did. Between the Kindle and the accessories I sold, it paid for my K2 and the Amazon cover. I even have enough left over for a couple of books. I wouldn't have gotten nearly as much as I did if I had waited. Mine literally sold 2 minutes after I posted it.

I just watched the "Guided Tour" video on the home page (not the one at the top, the one with the girl at the beach) it was like watching porn! I feel even more excited and just a little dirty! :eek:
