Spreading the word

No it's not another religious thread! I've owned my ereader for almost 2 months now and I'm quite addicted to it and I'm pretty sure my enthusiasm touches the people around me to. So far in the past month:
  • My father decided to buy one for my step mother
  • My brother bought one for his wife
  • My flat mate has now bought one
  • On the last flight I took to Geneva I'd managed to convince the pbook reader sitting next to me that ebooks were the way forward - after a full demo he certainly sounded like he was going to hit buy when he got home.
  • On the way back, while waiting for a delayed plane, I found myself sitting next to a guy who'd come to town to lobby for audio rights on books for the visually impaired - he was absolutely fascinated by TTS and user selectable huge fonts - a possible future buy.
  • On the actual flight I was talking to a guy who regularly buys pbooks in the UK to bring back to Switzerland for him and his wife. I showed him why an ereader was the obvious answer and he'd already decided to buy one for himself and one for his wife for Christmas.
The really sad thing is that everyone of these people will be getting the snazzy new kindle 3 while I'm left behind with my kindle 2

I've done my share of pimping the Kindle 3. My boss is looking to get one for the spouse this Xmas.

and Lo, the sky was darkened and the sun turned to Blood. Humanity trembled in fear and Confusion. Then, in the last desperate hour, a Savior appeared! Ereader was it's name, and it showed humanity the Way.
Hallelujah and Amen!

Ereader is your savior, eReader is a false prophet sent to lead you astray. Beware of false teachings

I think I may have made a sale in my doctor's office the other day. The woman seated next to me asked me how I liked my Kindle, so I showed her a few of the features and took it out of it's Oberon case and let her hold it to see how light it was. I should be on commission.

I've done my bit too! Showed my Sony 300 to my relative in the States, and she went out and brought a Kindle.

I'm going on holiday soon, so I can take 100 books with me and not fall foul of the 10kg hand baggage restrictions!

I've convinced 2 people this week to stick with paper books for now, but one woman told me she will consider getting an ebook reader when they're cheaper.

Well I'm flashing my Kindle on the way to work everyday. So far I haven't seen an enormous surge in readers on the train. Perhaps I need to get a bigger one so it's more visible

Ok, I just got this image of a Kindle wearing nothing but a raincoat and a leer on its screen. Thanks for THAT visual.
