I can't believe my new Kindle™
finally arrived today. DHL dumped it at the Post Office in Port Orchard, 7 miles from me Saturday afternoon, and the Mail truck had to take it 30 miles south to the Postal Service Distribution Center in Tacoma and then truck it 45 miles back up to Bremerton so my Mail Lady could bring it to my home. This was after the DHL truck was stuck in Chehalis for five days due to Interstate Five being ten foot under water and there being no other way north. Stupid storm. Amazon should have sent it UPS or just mailed it; I'd have had it sooner.
Anyway I have it and have read the first chapter of the on screen manual. I'm going to like it as it is light, the size of a trade paperback book, has selectable text size, very legible screen, and can hold 200 books in its memory with built-in wireless connection to Amazon for almost instant download of most new and many older books, periodicals, blogs, and also Wikipedia.
It did cost an arm and a leg, but that's my Christmas present.
