    I got mine yesterday too! I am so excited about it I can’t stand it! I’ll have to find the pretty screensavers.

      Jayne, I missed that you were getting one too! Hurrah! That makes 2 Kindlers that I know. With a 3rd on it’s way! Enjoy!

    Oo-oo! We are on Kindle watch! I ordered it last November! But is has left the warehouse! This is so exciting. Just one question: Are we all going to go bankrupt ordering books? I don’t suppose you can wireless them to each other? 🙂

      I’m amazed how many free books Amazon offers. But, no, you can’t share your books, darn it. One per customer. I buy a lot of books anyway and the Kindle books are generally significantly discounted off the regular prices. There are a couple of blogs that watch the Amazon Kindle lists carefully and will share info on free books, too. I’ll put together a post on my “sources.” You’re gonna love it!

    YAY YAY YAY–that was 3 cheers for you.
    The screen savers only come on if you leave the Kindle sit for awhile–at least that’s true on my Kindle 1 (I have the older style–harrumph).

    I never even thought of getting Newberry Award books. That’s one of the things I miss with my kids being all grown up. I love children’s literature and have no “need” to get it these days (I am without grandchildren thus far. . .)

      Thanks for the cheers, KGMom! I’m really enjoying it!

      On the Newbery books, I read Neil Gaiman’s blog so I’d been planning to read this anyway. His winning the Newbery for it right around when I was started to get really excited about the Kindle made it a natural choice. It’s quirky and odd and I’m thoroughly enjoying it!

    This is one of the new things that I probably won’t be getting any time soon, but I sure enjoy reading about them. I’d like to see one one, just to get the feel of it and a sense of its size and ease of reading.

      It’s very fun and totally indulgent. I read a LOT so Greg figured it was worth it. I didn’t argue!

    My sister in law has one, but this is the first time I have seen what they look like. Do the photos come on it, or can you add them?

    • Liza Lee Miller 25 February, 2009 at 6:16 pm #

      The photos do come on it. I think you can add them as well but I haven’t figured that out yet.

    How exciting! Congratulations.

    I just finished listeing to the audio version of “The Graceyard Book” (wonderfully ready by the author). Enjoyed it very much. How is the Kindle on your eyes? By the way, I noticed “Draongheart” is also on your Kindle list. I too am a Pern fan, and am reading that one now (desite flaws in the writing, I always enjoy the escape). Even named my cat (about 10 years ago) Piemur (no one else gets the reference).

    • Liza Lee Miller 27 February, 2009 at 8:12 pm #

      Piemur is a great name for a cat. I am enjoying “The Graveyard Book” and I’m really looking forward to reading more.

    I am a local Boulder Creek author and also a Kindle fan. I’ve had my Kindle since last July. I wanted to let you know that I am offering Book I of my trilogy, When Women Were Warriors, for free in Kindle format. You can download it from my web page:

    Thanks for posting your lovely pictures.

    • Liza Lee Miller 28 February, 2009 at 3:20 pm #

      Thanks, Catherine. Nice to meet you! I’m off right now to check out your offer! I am so pleased to “meet” an author from Boulder Creek! Will we meet for coffee at Jenna Sue’s someday? Have we already? What fun! Anyway, I hope you come back for another visit!

      • Catherine M. Wilson 28 February, 2009 at 3:53 pm #

        Who is Jenna Sue? I’d love to see your new Kindle.

        I have your blog feed in my Google Reader, which I check every day. It’s nice to see that someone in BC is getting some sun. I’m in the shadow of a ridge, which the sun peeks over for maybe 2 or 3 hours per day this time of year.

        • Catherine M. Wilson 28 February, 2009 at 3:56 pm #

          OK, I just google Jenna Sue and discovered it’s a cafe downtown. What is it next to?

          • Liza Lee Miller 28 February, 2009 at 11:09 pm #

            Jenna Sue’s is an awesome little coffee shop in downtown. It’s right next door to Oh Susannah’s and across the street from the drugstore. Great coffee, nice people and great pastries — the back of the coffee shop is the Dessert First bakery. Full of Boulder Creek locals.

          I live up by the golf course — we get a lot of sunshine up here. My husband would go nuts with only a couple of hours of sun each day — he’s a misplaced desert rat. 🙂
