I took the plunge

Well after a few weeks of hemming and hawing about the Sony versus the Kindle, I went with the Kindle. Sony software has been soo poor on other devices that I won't risk it.

Luckily, a lot of the older text e-books and Lit books can be converted so I can load those up for a quick read.

I'll see it on Friday.

Yes, have fun! I'm glad it is arriving on a Friday, so you have all weekend to play with it. It would be a hard thing, to have it arrive mid week, if you had to work or something!

Yeah ditto! (wait I dont have one, but I want one,) I did get my stimulus check this week... No I must refrain taking the kids to Disney... But DG has one, and so does Daffy... OH the Peer Pressure!!!!

Crap I was typing out loud again, I hate it when that happens now everyone knows, I try to be good and keep it all in and then next thing I know blam there it is on MR, If I am not careful I will be telling DG I love her Kindle or Daffy hers then I am caught between two Kindles, And then what about Queen Zee she has an EB 1150 and I cant resist french Readers, Wait I am doing it a again!!!

JJ, look into the computer screen. Look deep. You will see no other words but these.

BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW. BUY A KINDLE. BUY IT NOW.

I will now count backwards from three. When I finish, you will wake, rested, resfreshed and well read from owning your new Kindle.

3 - 2 - 1 Ahhhhhh

For some unknown reason I have the strangest urge to buy a Kindle,
Oh wait it was just dust on my screen!

Had to work or something? Woman, bite yer tongue!

Have fun with the Kindle. I won't go anywhere without mine. Even --- work!

I checked the tracking number about 11:00 PM last night to ensure that it would be delivered today and it showed delivered!!! My wife was outside almost all day yesterday! There was no way that it was delivered!!!

I checked the front porch and there was my Kindle! Damn! At 11:00 PM too! Too late to stay up reading.

Got up early, fired it up and I absolutely LOVE it already!!!! Fantastic little machine!!!
