Rejoice! Kindles are back in stock!
Some of you may remember the somewhat nefarious Chanuka Kindle Plot.

Today, Jeff Bezos announced that they are FINALLY back in stock. Hopefully they will not sell out in five hours.

I am 75% there. So if you want to pitch five bucks or so my way it would be greatly appreciated. :)

feeling: : hopeful hopeful

What's a Kindle?

Here's the best answer I can give :)

The Kindle is the new ebook reader from amazon.com which also allows free use of Wikipedia, the ability to subscribe to publications such as magazines and newspapers for a reasonable rate, and does almost all this over the same wireless network that powers a lot of our phones today - without charging a monthly rate for the use of said wireless service. :)

It will enable me to get rid of the majority of my physical books - those that aren't autographed, that is. If I should want to read the book again I can then either borrow it from the library or if it's a keeper, get it on the Kindle and not have to have three or four more pounds of stuff to schlep around.

It will enable me to subscribe to a newspaper or two without hundreds of pounds of paper coming to me every month. :)

Don't think of it so much a donation as much as making part of Davidescu history :P
