Greetings from New York City

I am Dana. I teach Sociology in the CUNY system and my research area is the flap in the Episcopal Church/Anglican Communion.

I purchased an AStak EZ Reader Pro at Thanksgiving and took advantage of Amazon's try it and love it or get a refund and keep it Kindle offer.

MY first computer was an Osborne 1 back in the early 80's when I was one of the first people on the Columbia Hill to get one.

Hi ddfen and welcome to MobileRead. My dad is from Brooklyn and my mom is from Manhattan; consequently I tell people I'm a product of a mixed marriage.
