I was aware of Kindle and readers when I first saw a Sony at Borders a year or two ago.

Then, Kindle was just starting to ramp up on amazon. (where I've always shopped) It was on their home page for eons, so I just had it in the back of my mind.

What really got me interested was seeing one in person. A lady on the train was reading it. I couldn't believe how good the screen looked. I had no interested until I saw that it looked a LOT like printed paper. OK, to be fair, it looks like printing on junky recycled paper, but it is close enough.

After that, I bought one right away. Then, I found the kindle forum at Amazon. The forum software there is lame, so I googled and found this place. A member here mentioned kindleboards, but as with other things, I prefer a less model-specific, more international forum.

This may sound dumb, but I really like this place because the writing is at a much higher level than other fora. (spelling, grammar, sentence construction, etc.) I feel like I'm talking to intellectual equals, rather than knuckle-draggers who happen to share some other interest.
