A Christmas gift from Mrs. Major and Sweet Dau Major and birthday gift from Old Dad, my Kindle finally shipped today.

In case you don’t know what a Kindle is, it’s an electronic book. Kindle users can download books from Amazon.com or upload files to be read from their own computers.

Sweet Dau gave me an appropriately decorated Visa debit gift card with “KINDLE FUND O’ DADNESS” emblazoned on it. I couldn’t figure out how to apply that card as a partial payment for the Kindle so I pre bought a bunch of books. Here’s the list:

  • Rusty Nail — J.A. Konrath
  • Night Fire — Catherine Coulter
  • The Motive — John Lescroart
  • Valdez Is Coming — Elmore Leonard
  • The Millionaires — Brad Meltzer
  • Farewell, My Lovely — Raymond Chandler
  • The Big Sleep — Raymond Chandler
  • Black and Blue — Ian Rankin
  • The Prince of Beverly Hills — Stuart Woods
  • Third Person Singular — Kj Erickson
  • Death of a Charming Man — M. C. Beaton
  • Thr3e — Ted Dekker
  • Shakespeare’s Landlord — Charlaine Harris
  • Killing Floor — Lee Child
  • Total Recall — Sara Paretsky
  • Tunnel Vision — Sara Paretsky
  • Hard Time — Sara Paretsky

Thanks Mrs. Major, Sweet Dau, and Old Dad.

    Our daughter bought one. Don’t know if she is using it. Don’t know what she is doing, she never calls. Maybe we will hear from her in March on her brother’s birthday.

    How does the price of the downloaded books compare to “real” book purchases?
    I can’t decide if I’m fascinated with this concept of reading or not.

    Mike, the Kindle looks really fun. Several of our friends have recently gotten one. I just wanted to say, in that picture of you holding your new Kindle…your nails look so nice…do you get manicures??? HA!!

    Hope you guys are doing well.

    :)Jen

    Ihave wondered about these. Is it very heavy? I have to admit a fondness for the tactile satisfaction of turning a paper page, especially since I spend so many hours at work looking at computers. I too, am curious about the price of the books via Kindle vs. buying a bound volume.
