I just ordered my kindle! It's really a Valentines day gift from DH but he's out of town and his motel doesn't have good interent access so he asked me to order it. I don't care if it's unromantic--- I'm finally getting my kindle!

I know we discussed 'em and only a couple of people have one but I'm really torn on the whole cover/light thing. I've read a million reviews and now I'm more confused then before...

Anyone have cool accessories?

I ordered a kindle today, too I'm so excited. I actually used "Saturday" shipping and paid a little more so I could have it sooner... it's already shipped, so I'll have it tomorrow.

I got this case: Amazon.com: Belkin Neoprene Kindle Case (Fits 6" Display, Latest Generation Kindle) [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging]: Electronics

I was so conflicted on the whole cover/case/sleeve things, too.. but ended up with the above case since it zippers all around and I like to travel, so assumed that would be the best option for me. I didn't end up getting any type of light - I wanted to see if I thought I needed one first.

Enjoy yours!!!! I know how excited you are!!!!!

It's a wireless reading device You buy your books through amazon (for tons cheaper- most between $4 and 9.99) and read it on your kindle-

Amazon.com: Kindle Wireless Reading Device (6" Display, Global Wireless, Latest Generation): Kindle Store

I don't have it yet I went and pretended I was all responsible and did free shipping. I told DH I did that so once I got it and figured it out I was going to spend that money on a cover

I also love mine too! The only downside is that the HP series isn't available on kindle.

Aw, well hopefully soon you have it!!!

I actually find it harder to read 'real' books, too, now... and I've only had mine since Saturday- yikes. The reading is so "smooth" and easy on the kindle that I actually read a LOT quicker, also (I'm a fast reader to begin with). I love it more than I even thought I would.

I hope you got your Kindle by now, Kim!

Do you like it? Love it?

What books have you downloaded on it so far?
