Stepping up to the microphone

Hello, everyone! I've been lurking in this forum for months now, checking out the different e-readers. I've downloaded many novels from the Baen free library and have a subscription to their e-magazine, but want something more convenient to read them on. My main problem is that none of the devices coming out seem to be selling in Canada, which is where I live. Still, I'm reading and hoping.

Welcome eh!

Should we separate from the rest of MR and have a Canadian edition?

The middle bit (Saskatchewan, if you know where that is).

I'll avoid the jokes about the Montreal representative promoting separation from the rest of the community and just say that unless Canadian companies start producing dedicated e-readers, we wouldn't have much to talk about.

Thanks for the welcome, all.

Of course I realize that's a joke, but seriously the only split by geography I see for MR is what we have in the photo section!

For me, one of the nicest things about MR is the diversity of people we have. It's very cool!

Way cool!

Imagine Canada splitting up in Sakatshewan!

Saskatchewan? Isn't that a big furry monster?

I'm sorry, but as an American, it's my duty to deny the existence of other countries! I am kidding.
