Hello from British Columbia

Hi all! I just pre-ordered my first ereader (I decided on the kobo wifi) and stumbled upon this forum as I waited for it's release. I don't know about you but during this whole waiting period, I'm just so obsessed with my new future toy that I have to go online and read about it as much as I can (to tie me over til it arrives). This includes the time before I ordered it because I like to research and research an item before diving in. I've been here on this forum (in the kobo section) so many times in the past week, but new threads aren't appear fast enough (I'm a little obsessive-compulsive, haha) so I decided to look at the rest of the forum and lo! I see this neat little area...and people are genuinely welcoming too! So, just dropping a quick(ish) note to say thanks for running a great community.

Thanks again to you all for the warm welcomes. Yup! I'm already a regular 'customer' (before for audiobooks). However, it's unfortunate that they are serving all of BC but only have the same number of copies as 1-2 branches. Oh well, can't complain about a free service that I'm glad to have!
