Talking Newbie Saying Hello

Anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new Kindle DX. Ordered one (I thought) to arrive back in early June, but got lost somewhere in the shuffle. A coworker that pre-ordered hers got it, and now I have Kindle envy! Checking in with Amazon, had to reorder, and expect it shortly after the Fourth. Hope it makes it on Friday, but not holding my breath.

I found the forum looking for converter information on swapping over various formats like .lit and .chm to the Kindle format from my Macintosh. I do like to read, and this format just seems to fit me to a tee! I have been reading while traveling on my iPhone, and Audiobooks while commuting, but screen just to small on my phone. The new DX looks perfect for storing files/research documents, and I anticipate it being quite an asset at work (At least that is how I will sell it to the little woman!).

Look forward to all the good information I anticipate finding amongst the posts here.

Glad to be here.

Thanks for the welcome

Still no Kindle, but expecting it on July 7...who knows, it might come in the mail just in time for the weekend!
