    That's great, Mimi! I don't have one, but wish I did.

    I'll let you know for sure...so nobody has one here....??? Darn ......wanted to get ahead start on the ins and outs....i'm seriously psyched about it...this second generation does so much more than the first...i understand you can download a book in about a minute....over 220 thousand titles available right know and more coming...so cool!!

    I listen to audio books every work day as I deliver the mail - switch back and forth between cd's and cassette books - mostly - but a new form has come along called play-away and its neat - mostly I get them from the local library - it makes delivering the mail less boring - I like the idea of having a larger selection available! I am limited by hat the librarians decide to order - though they are pretty good about inter-library loaning when I request - I hate to bother them - - I would love to have a medium for listening that I had more control over title choosing! looking forward to hearing how you like it! Good luck!

    I just saw an article on the Kindle today thought it might be useful.

    I received my Kindle 2 today and i absolutely LOVE it....have already DL'd 3 books!! one of which was only 2.39....WHAT!!...the text to voice is alright...i think you can slow it down abit and you have the choice of gender voice...its not like audio books where someone is actually reading the book but it hasn't annoyed me yet..i got the cover that was actually made for it which i really like because it locks it in on the spine...the other covers use elastic on the corners and they are much more expensive....ease of use is amazing... I was up and runnig in 5 minutes...you can change the font size, so I can read WITHOUT my glasses if i so choose....on a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a 10.....if i come across a problem i'll let ya know....if you're interested. PEACE.... i am off to explore and read....
