haha,
you make me smile

It is thyself, mine own self's better part;
Mine eye's clear eye, my dear heart's dearer heart;
My food, my fortune, and my sweet hope's aim,
My sole earth's heaven, and my heaven's claim.
-William Shakespeare, The Comedy Of Errors

Easy enough...

1. Log on to Amazon.com.
2. Click Kindle graphic on front page.
3. On the Kindle product page, click "Buy Now."
4. On the checkout page, confirm your shipping address and payment method.
5. Click "Complete Order."

Done.

I keep going back and forth on whether to buy one. I like the notion of using them for research books for future novels, since I can mark and annotate them. Also, I can pop my own novel into the Kindle and use that to read outside the house without printing, again with annotation coming into play. We'll see...

If you think it's too bulky, you mental image of its size is possibly askew. Check out the clip on comedycentral of Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO, talking with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show. He's holding one and you can see how small it is.

Hmm...

Well, if you could hold down a job... *ducks* :-)

That's an expensive book-reading machine, though. I find it too expensive, and I could just order it now and not be concerned.
