Hi from NYC

Just ordered the new Kindle Wi-Fi -- my first e-reader. Glad I found this board!

Can't wait 'til Santa arrives (on August 27th)!

Thanks for all the welcomes.

happy_terd, you have one of the ... happiest ... usernames around. (Sono italo-americano ma non parlo la lingua tanto bene.... )

Jim, I just read your personal gadget history. Fascinating! (I can't imagine reading a book on a cellphone -- not even an iPhone. Maybe I just lack imagination.) Hard to believe, but I bought my first cell phone in '93. They were analog devices back then!

I just hope Santa doesn't experience production delays. Perhaps if I entertain him with some Kindle limericks:

1)
Gonna jump from my chair, gonna fly high
Gonna thump and cavort -- do you sigh, why?
Ooh there's ants in my pants
Gotta get up and dance
I just sprang for a Kindle with Wi-Fi!

2)
What a wonderful thing is a Kindle
It's book that you don't fold or spindle
With the flick of a switch
You'll have classics or kitsch
If your mind isn't blown then the wind'll.

3)
To limerick a Kindle is nifty
It's fun and it's really quite thrifty
I've downloaded free books
From all crannies and nooks
Now I'm up to a thousand and fifty!

C'mon, Santa! You can do it!

Hi Viseguy and welcome to MobileRead. When I was a kid I thought the world stopped at the Hudson River and, you know, I still do.

Welcome to MobileRead, Viseguy.

Where in Brooklyn? I've lived in Bensonhurst and Bay Ridge years back, and have some familiarity with other parts of the borough.

BTW: reading on a cellphone isn't all that unusual. My normal reader is a Palm OS PDA. It's nice to carry a library in your pocket.
