Oh, PA & Dani,
I did break down & buy the Kindle DX (because it is larger for my poor eyes) the other week. It broke my bank, but the two of you gave such great reviews of your experiences/things you had read/heard. I'm really excited, because I'm hoping that it will allow me to "read" some of my books for fun again (now that it has a text to speech function). I think that it will be worth it though! I haven't been able to do that in so long, and I really
miss it! There are only so many books on audiobook that I am actually interested in reading (and they are outrageously expensive! I just bought two for this trip & it cost my $40, and these are OLD books too -- not to mention that it is a 20-something book series -- can you imagine how much this is going to cost me if I were to purchase them all?! I have them in print version, but I haven't been able to make any headway over the last TWO years with my eyes. I managed to read the first two books of the series, but that was
two years ago. I've made it partway through book 3 in the last year & a half. I bought the 3rd & 4th books. I hope I remember what happened in the beginning!).
I am disappointed, though, because my Kindle hasn't come yet!
It said it was back ordered & that it would take 3 - 5 weeks (I think it has been 2 wks now). I wasn't really expecting to have it in time for my trip, but I was really hoping.... I guess I still have two more hours before I leave for the start of my trip...
