New to the forums
A nice young man on the bus tonight told me about these forums! I've had my Kindle now since early January, a birthday present to myself, and I love it! I have five pages of books on it, not including the ones I've read in the past couple months and deleted. I did have our local paper on it for a week or so, but didn't like how it navigated so I unsubscribed. If they change it in the future, sure, because it was much more convenient.
Introduction done, I'm going to surf the threads here now!

Good to have your company, LadyWriter. I'm sure you won't regret that bus trip if you stick with us. Best wishes. Neil
