ah one of the great joys of a kindle - no waiting required :)
Tsk Tsk :( By instant gratification you've lost the joy of hearing the delivery fall through the letterbox or even better the fun of browsing a bookshop :P

Don't mind me, I'll never buy a kindle I love books too much but I also never bought a CD player (the car came with one though) and still collect vinyl but I won that game as CDs are on the way out and vinyl still rules 8) I can't see the music downloading thingy taking off either :shock: :lol:

Agreed. Having packages arrive in the post makes me happy. And browsing in bookshops is relaxing.
I love having a physical book too much. Not ready for an e-reader just yet XD

What a coinkidink! I just finished that yesterday.
