My favorite place to use my Kindle is in my left hand. I have read in the car, on the train, on an airplane, in a taxi, in a hotel lobby, in bed, on my couch, in the bathroom, in a restaurant, in the doctor's office waiting room, in the dentist's chair, in a motion picture theatre, at my sister's house, and probably some places I can't think of right now. In fact, the only place I can think of where I have been and I *haven't* read on my Kindle is at church. And once I get a Bible installed and maybe some of the writings of the Church fathers or saints, I'll probably read there too.

I'm a left hander, too. Put my hand inbetween the lining and cover, and use my thumb to hit next or previous. Train and bed are my two favorite places to read. I am reading exponentialy more since I got my kindle 1.

Amazon has a FREE ESV Bible posted, I was thinking that I would check it out when my Kindle arrives. I am wondering how well the notes will work with the Bible.....no highlighting through the thin sheets...

Gentle Readers: We have the first potty post of the day.


I don't read in the bathroom. I'm afraid it would fall in!

Favorite Place: Outside in the sunshine.

There are a couple of nicely formatted Bibles uploaded to our MR free library also. I tried a bunch of them from a bunch of booksellers, but preferred the ones we have right here.

I'm a left handed reader, too. When I'm at home I actually prefer live, nude Kindle action. No cover. I usually read in bed or in one of two comfy reading chairs. I have one in the living room and another in my gym where my current foster kitty is living. She doesn't like the other kitties. Since she was a feral, I try to spend a lot of time every day with her to socialize her so I put a comfy chair in there so I can sit and snuggle with her.

I like reading reclined in an armchair or stretched out on the bed - but I get too comfy, and after 20 mins or so I start nodding off.

My favouritest place is probably in the bath.
