Today was Amazon Kindle 2 Day

Though it wasn't the day that my Amazon Kindle 2 arrived...that arrived a day early. But, I did start loading it up with material to read. The first purchased item was a subscription to Reader's Digest.

I had let my print subscription go years ago, because it was hard to keep up....I have too many magazines and not enough time, so I could probably stand to lose a few more here and there. But, it was interesting reading Reader's Digest again...on the Kindle. Might look at other subscriptions, though not really sure what else I would want that is currently available.

Also not sure where I stand on books. I haven't been reading much in a very long time, but I've been meaning to get back into things....I just don't know where to begin now.

UPS Hell Update & Amazon Kindle 2

Yeah....I finally have a UPS for what I ordered last Wednesday. I was kind of surprised when I checked the order status at Staples.com, and found that they had sent the reordered UPS also by UPS. Guess they were trusting that the lost one was a fluke, and wasn't going to happen again.

Fortunately, it arrived.

Also among the UPS deliveries today, was my Amazon Kindle 2.

I haven't opened the box for the UPS yet, but I did open the Kindle package. Kind of neat that the quick setup 'sheet' isn't on the plastic that protects the screen but saved into the screen itself.

However, the USB power cord was kind of annoying. First its yet another unique USB plug that I have to deal with, guess I'll put another one in my Amazon.com shopping cart for future purchase. Second the orientation was backwards from what I expected. There's an AmazonKindle logo on what appeared to be the top, and the curved corners were opposite this side...so it seemed that this was the top for plugging it in. But, it wasn't.

I thumbed part way through the user's guide, and then added some stickers to it (a StuffBak label) and put it into its cover and then left it to continue charging.

Thursday is Kindle 2 Day.

On Valentines Day, I had pre-ordered myself the Kindle 2. It projected a delivery date of February 26th, based on Amazon Prime Delivery. So, last Friday, I submitted the time off request to take February 26th off.

Though Amazon has apparently started shipping the Kindle 2 today...so Amazon Prime makes delivery for Wednesday the 25th instead.

Guess I'll find something else to occupy my time on Thursday now.

Though I might not get to do all that much with the Kindle 2 the first night with it.... :|

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
