Kindle Time -- and book pimping for my friend =) @ 02:41 pm

My kindle arrived today... opened the box about half an hour ago and so far I LOVE it... it is charging now... I have already gone and bought my friend wl551's book "Half of Me", which if you are inclined to check out, you can purchase here --> Buy "Half of Me" at Freya's Bower and support my friend

I plugged it into my laptop, only to discover that when you plug it in via usb, it goes into USB mode, and you can't play with it... it says that when you eject it from the usb it will still charge and you can continue playing with it... but it didn't so much work... which probably has more to do with my laptop running Vista than it does with the kindle itself - I have noticed that Vista acts strangely with usb things that you eject but still have plugged in... I shall have to test this hypothesis with my regular comp running XP later.

I have already managed to take one of the ebooks I already had on my computer in .mobi format and transfer it over to the kindle via USB... came out prefectly fine... so while kindle is charging, I am going to work on converting the rest of my ebooks into .mobi format.

YAY!

Thank you, sweetie, for buying and pimping my story. :) I hope you enjoy it!

I can't wait to hear more about how you like your Kindle. I bet it is even more awesome in hand.

You are welcome... I don't know if the pimping will help at all as LJ seems like a ghost town as of late, but I figure even if I send one person your way that buys it, it was worth it =)

I haven't had a chance to read it yet... have been playing all day... and doing laundry... and tending to Buddha who just got home from the hospital - apparently a good deal of the pretty plants in our backyard are highly toxic to dogs, and we never knew because our other dogs are too old to eat plants, but Buddha is only 4 months and wants to eat everything. So I have been having to keep a close eye on him all day which hasn't been really allowed me much time to read.
