argghhh ... desperate for December 5th!!

Well .. I can convince myself now that it's nearly December 5th, the time of the next 'wave' of cybooks! .. I am sooooooooooooo wanting it to come already! .. I sold my iRex at the beginning of the month and going back to reading 'real' books has been horrible! .. they seem so heavy after getting used to the ebook reader experience! .. and I take ages to choose what to read next whereas it's just 'there' on my ebook reader and so simple! ..

The arrival of the kindle has made me yearn even more for the Cybook! .. I'm in the UK so the kindle wasn't going to be an option anyways but I'm pretty sure I'd have still chosen the Cybook regardless it's just such a nice piece to gadgetry to look at (most things are compared to the Kindle )

Anyways, I just had to post as I'm finding it so hard to keep being patient, although of course I have no choice in the matter! .. waiting has never been one of my strong points!!

I'm feeling the same way! When fictionwise had their end-of-october 100% rebate for 5 year club members, I bought a ton of books.

And while I *can* read them on either my pda or my phone, I'm desperately trying to wait for my cybook to fully experience the glory.

Although I'm just hoping for arrival by the 18th, that being my birthday and all

argghhh ... desperate for ?????

At least you have a shipping date! NAEB is still not ready to take my order! I AM being patient! I AM trying to be good and not add my 2 cents to the litany of whiners plagueing Derek. But, I am sooooooooooooo wanting to place my order already!

Just Remember September and October when you think December 5th is a real date.

My wife has been remarkably calm for the past month waiting for her reader until yesterday. She said in an offhand manner that she would get her reader this week. I said that it was only supposed to ship on Wednesday so it would be some time still. You could see the disappointment and now she has joined the ranks in need of the meditation thread.
