Hello.  I found this board through google, when I was looking for a solution to unfreeze my kindle. 

I live in Iowa.  I am married with 2 children.  I am a high school math teacher.  I do not read as much as I would like to, but now that I have a Kindle, I have been making more time to read.  I carry it with me everywhere, doctor's office, waiting to pick up kids, road trips,waiting for a meeting to start, etc.

I watched the Oprah episode in October about the Kindle, then I kept telling my husband how neat they sounded.  I also mentioned the $50 off coupon.  He and I then did some researching on Amazon.  I had heard of a Kindle before, but did not know much about it. Then to my surprise, less than one week later, I came home and 2 Kindles were sitting on the table.  I have been hooked ever since. 

I downloaded Marley and Me and am almost done with it.  I am a slow reader, just finding bits and pieces of time to read.  I have downloaded MANY samples.  I love that feature.  Then I can look throught the sample and decide what to read next.  I got an Amazon Gift Card for Christmas, so I can buy some more books. 

I have found a lot of interesting tips by reading this board.  Looking forward to meeting you.

Hello Tbarney and welcome! It is great to have you here. I found the Kindle much in the same way as you. Saw it in passing on Oprah while flipping through channels, spent the next week reading everything I could find. Found KindleBoards through the Amazon boards the day I order my Kindle and have been here ever since!

Nice to have you here Tbarney - be sure and get your husband to join the board too.  It seems as if there are several families here and it is fun to listen to them.

Hiya Tbarney, nice to have you here. I carry Jinx with me everyday and it's amazing how many bits of time you can find during the day to read...kind of like carrying a Reader's Digest around ;) It was nice of hubby to surprise you with the Kindles...I wish my husband was a reader.
