Hallo/Hello vanuit/from Nederland/the Netherlands :-)

I am joining the e-book reading scene from Tuesday. That is when my Kindle 3 will arrive! I have been playing around with Calibre and adding tons (well 522 up to now) of Fantasy and Sci-fi books to my list.

As my user name suggests Discworld is on top of my reading list (Rinzwind is the Dutch translated name of Rincewind (duh!) and lucky for me not alot of people use it on the web. 9 out 10 times if you see that name on the web it is me ).

My bookshelves range from the old masters AE van Voght, Jack Vance, Ursula la Guin, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Heinlein, Arthur C Clarke to the new masters like Feist/Wurst, Robert Jordan. Most in dutch except for Pratchett's Discworld and Adams' Hitchhiker's guide those I buy and read in english

Not a lot of fantasy e-books are in dutch so I am trying to get the hang of reading english (it is a lot more demanding ).

Well that's enough for now! Ask away if you have any questions!
And I am always open for good advice on fantasy books!

Wim

Hallo Wim, en welkom ! Hier zitten nog een aantal Belgen en Nederlanders

Good luck with your Kindle, I bought a Sony 650 a couple of weeks ago, now I'm completely addicted and can't live without it.

There are a couple of threads on Fantasy books here on mobile read (The reading recommendation section), I've found them very helpful myself, being a huge Fantasy fan.

***update***
My Kindle was at work before *I* got to work today
1 day quicker than promised by UPS.

And wtf. They set it up flawlessly. I could access the amazon site w/o touching any config, cool

Pity I need to work now and can only look at it
