Kindle 2

I just ordered the Amazon Kindle 2! Actually my husband is getting it for me for my birthday. I am so excited. I even paid for one day shipping to get it here by my birthday.
Everyone that writes or blogs about it has liked it. I wish I knew someone around here who has one, but I don't.
If you have one please leave a comment about yours. How do you like it? Is it as easy to use as I've read? What accessories did you buy? What did you name your Kindle?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Click the picture above to go to J. Kaye's blog and join in. What are you reading on this week?

Turn Coat by Jim Butcher was finished this morning.

Tea Time for the Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith is a book I've been looking forward to this for awhile. I love this series.

I am listening to Power Play by Joseph Finder. It is great so far. An edge of your seat mystery, thriller.

I'm also listening to Belle Weather: Mostly Sunny With a Chance of Scattered Hissy Fits by Celia Rivenbark. VERY funny.
