Did you buy a Kindle DX?

Do you love it?

Did you 'cross over'?

Tell us about it!

**This is a public poll. Others can see your vote.

I'm just interested in this poll and the last option, but know better than to vote until it has been finalized by the poll fairy. ;)

BTW, what's the difference between option #1 and #5. :blink:

WDE.

Well, it could mean that the purchaser only had a hand-held multi-function device for reading and not a "dedicated" ebook reader. Going from one really small screen to one really large screen, bypassing the middle-of-the-road sized screen entirely. Couldn't it?

I'll buy many things from Amazon... but not any of their ebook readers. Not so long as they would bully sites like MR, and not so long as they insist on a proprietary format.

I quite agree, except for the "darn them"! I don't know what it is, but as soon as I see "poll" I'm right there! An overwhelming need to express my opinion? :chinscratch:

I could swear that I read the topic as Do you Bite?

And the answer to that would be, gently but with vigor.

There seems to be a bit of a trend with your polls DG, or kindle owners are a bit shy!

I used to buy books from Amazon. Then I got my Sony and have no need to do so any more. :D
These days I buy antihistamines from Amazon. For some reason I like the idea of purchasing medicine from a book store. :cool:
Yesterday I ordered some Lemongrass seeds from Amazon. This made perfect sense to me. :smack:
I tried to buy some cooking condiments from Amazon but they wouldn't ship them to Japan. Neither would they ship the "Backyard Water Park." :angry:
Buy a Kindle? Not on yer nelly!
I expect that next week Amazon will change its name to Sear & Roebuck and then go out of business shortly afterwords. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I voted for the last option. Germans only bite when they feel threatened btw. If someone takes away the chocolate, for example. :D

You can follow the poll without voting in it. I would vote if there was a simple No. What's up with that, desertgrandma?

Please.

I really don't feel like having another 21,895 people voting "no" to the 3 or 4 that vote yes............:p

I could swear that I read the topic as Do you Bite?.

When I saw the topic in the post (the Kindle DX), I read it as did you bite the Kindle DX... And I was wondering if this was a poll for those people that teethed on the DX...

Anyway, even if I were able to get one, I doubt I would. I'm starting to put Amazon in the Apple compartment (which is a no-buy from me). And I think you all know my stance about it's form-factor by now ;)

And I saw "did you bite" and assumed it would be a poll about who was a biter as a child. I was all set to proudly click "NO, I was not a biter! but I did get bitten by someone else"

*shaking head, mumbles: been around too many biters....*

****edited to add that if you were one who immediately thought of gnawing and "hey! That's MY crayon" types of altercations, please weigh in on the sister poll of the same name. I would CnP the link if I knew how on my crackerry...

I got it.... Bite as in "Did you bite Amazon's bait?" and also Buy It.. Bite...sounds the same if you're from Texas, anyway. But no, I didn't.

This is looking pretty sad.

How can there not be more people interested in the blue Canadian/German one next to the Portuguese fish?
