Hello from Down Under

Hi everyone, this is my first post, though I've been browsing the site for the last couple of weeks.

I'm a baby-boomer from Australia. I discovered e-books soon after the Internet began, though my interests were diverted when I discovered that the websites that sold e-books also sold MP3 discs of Old Time Radio shows.

It's a moot point whether I have more OTR shows or e-books on my hard drive now.

So far I haven't bought an e-book reader -- I usually read on my laptop. When I retired from my job with the Presbyterian Church they gave me as a farewell gift a notebook computer so I could read e-books in bed !

G'Day Mike and welcome to MobileRead. I started eBooks on an iPac Pocket PC and haven't stopped since.

You need to get off your duff and buy an ebook reader, my friend!

I'm also a huge fan of OTR, but my collection is not organized. I have about 30 DVDs full of wonderful Old Time Radio shows.

Remember: The Number One Rule (which for some reason has yet to be written down) is to HAVE FUN!
