Another few months and there will be a hundred different ones for sale here. I just was never good at delayed gratification. I want what I want NOW.
Besides, it's fun to figure out how to make something I can use, even if two months from now I wind up buying a commercially made dock because the one I made looks like Frankenstein's Summer Camp A&C project.

True, true.
hm, I remember, when I was in China, that I had about the same restrictions in browsing the internet as I had in Iran.

Trying to decide whether or not to order an Oberon case for my new Kindle. I noticed that just after a week Amazon's case already has some scratches on it whilst it hasn't spend much time in my handbag yet. I also like that Oberon's cases have a closing, I now use an elastic band to keep Amazon's case closed in my bag. On the other hand I like how small and light the Kindle is in the original case and I know that the Oberon case add size and weight.
The Oberon will add a LOT of weight, but they are beautiful and offer a lot of protection. The last Oberon I bought was a Mini Sleeve for my Paperwhite, and it's considerably less weight than their full covers. The Mini Sleeves also fit the K-4, and if money is a consideration, they're also a bit cheaper than their full covers.

I'd heard they were going to stop making them, but since I ordered mine on October 18, I notice that not only are the Mini Sleeves still on the website, but they've increased in price from $49 to $52.

I had an Oberon case for my Kindle Keyboard and loved it. I broke down and ordered one for my Kindle 4, the Da Vinci case in saddle.

Right now I'm packing the semi final things for my holiday. Can't pack certain things until tomorrow (toiletries, etc). I've rented a cottage in a bungalow park and I've planned a lazy week of reading and watching films and series (spend the last week converting various dvd and copying them to my media player).

It's called simply "Tree." Some of you just may recognize the artist.
I got the painting back from the framers and mounted on my wall. I think it turned out really well.

From here, it looks like a leather frame! Very nice! (Of course, I'm somewhat biased...)

I bought a saddle Da Vinci for the 1st generation Nook I had. Now my K-3 lives in it (with some alterations).

Everything is packed, I only have to go to the supermarket to get some food stuffs I'm not sure they sell at the park. But first I want to get my feet warmed up; I had already packed my slippers last night, which wasn't a good idea since it was very cold this morning.

Gotta' sign off. "A Study in Terror" is just starting on the telly. Unless I'm mistaken, that's the one where Sherlock Holmes & Ellery Queen go after Jack the Ripper. Read the book (perhaps under another name) and it was great.

I was expecting more drawings, but it chronicled his learning process that brought him to his famous self-portraits (which was the final pieces in the exhibit) -- I guess some people (overheard) were confused and expected to see "Starry Night" or his more famous stuff. It was worth seeing and the book that my son bought for me will be even better...no crowds to deal with!
