Yep, it like a frat house inviting 100 more guys to the party and not buying any more refreshments. It's going to get thirsty our there.

Europe?

I'm really glad this is rolling out -- but I haven't seen any information about it coming to Europe. Does anyone know anything about plans beyond the US?

Mine does too. We Kentuckians are a laid-back people and can't be bothered with getting in a hurry about things.

And it does in-fact work as many suggested. You add a Kindle title to your select list, confirm checkout and then press the "Get for Kindle" button which takes you to Amazon where you can send the book to your Kindle or download it.
