Wow! You guys are terrific! I asked for opinions and you gave them. THANKS!
Whether you own a Kindle, a Nook, or an iPad, one thing is for certain: People are fiercely loyal to whatever eReader they use. They LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. I'm hoping this is going to be contagious! Because I bought ...
a Kindle. I got the 3G+WiFi in white.
Not very long after the first responses to this post came in, I got an email from Amazon. FREE TWO-DAY SHIPPING on all Kindles it proclaimed. It was enough to get me back to my abandoned cart. That meant I could have it by this weekend. I thought that was so cool that I bought it. Estimated delivery: Feb. 11. That's today!
I've been very excited. Until this morning.
I've always had very good luck and experiences with Amazon and this wouldn't be so bad EXCEPT I was very excited about it. I thought it was a little odd when my shipping information hadn't been updated AT ALL yesterday. Then this morning, I find that it's been updated ... my Kindle left Florida about two hours ago. Projected delivery date: "by end of day, Tuesday, Feb. 15."
WHAT?! So much for two-day shipping. And I really shouldn't complain. It's just another couple of days but ... the anticipation and expectation had been set. I don't set myself up to look forward to too many things, so when I do, the excitement is usually palpable. (So, yes, I feel cheated and I'm not happy. Waaaah. *momentarily sinks into 3-year-old mode, whines*)
OK. We'll let that pass. I'm sure I'll still be just as thrilled with it when it arrives on Tuesday.
