And, just in time. The weather here is supposed to turn ugly tomorrow and I may be housebound for the day.
The Amazon Kindle was delivered by UPS just before 5 p.m. I left it charging while I went off to Wednesday night church services. When I got back home I started, and am still, reading the Kindle User's Guide so have not yet added any Kindle books to my collection. There are a ka-jillion free books out there, and twenty ka-jillion available for a price -- almost too many from which to choose.
The apparatus comes with the user's guide, a personalized letter from Jeff Bezos, Founder and CEO of Amazon.com (may he live long and prosper), the Oxford Dictionary of English and The New Oxford American Dictionary installed. Just to see if I could, I looked up "grebe" on the ODE because that's the first word that popped into my mind. Easy peasy!
It will take me a while to become familiar with the finer points of operating this 3G marvel. If you're lucky, I won't spend too much time writing here about my progress.
Tomorrow is also a day (rain and snow flurries expected).
