Hopefully that's the last of the typos, so I have removed the posts relating to them now to keep things tidy.

Sometimes going back to thread reminds me not only how great my Kindle is but how lucky we all are to have KUF.
Thanks Lou for being the one to make it happen even before you got your own Kindle.
Remember the time last year when we used to live out our days drooling about our yet to be delivered Kindles while reading the posts of those who were living the dream?
Now I couldn't contemplate not having a Kindle in my hands every day.

You are so right. I look at the sheer 'poundage' of books my eldest son has to lug about on a daily basis for school and wonder (seriously) what damage it might be doing him.

It seems so long ago now. I got mine on 10 September (that date is firmly fixed in my mind!) and it took forever to arrive - I think about 1 month. Everyone was posting about how they were waiting and waiting and when someone did get theirs, we were all excited and envious.

Hehe, yeah it does seem a distant memory now, the long wait for the pre-orders. It's ironic now that you can just pick one up with the weekly shop.

Still, here's to next Christmas. I wonder if we'll need a Kindle 4 article ?

RE: 10 Reasons to buy a Kindle this Christmas

We are a two Kindle family now and life can be very quiet! It is also good to be able not only to share books but also to chat about our mutual reads. I was surprised on our recent holiday how few Kindles were on display. Apart from ours, we only saw one other - which was permanently glued to the owner's hand! As motorhomers, we have freed a whole cupboard now we don't need reading books. We still need camping guides, atlases etc, but 2 months reading x 2, added up to quite a lot and the space (and weight reduction) is very welcome. My Kindle ranks as one of my indispensible possessions and it is never far away!
That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.
