It's HERE!!!!

The Fedex people arrived when I was awake!

Pictures with only a few words - I tried to get Cody to pose with the reader but he seems to find the flash upsetting nowadays so not so much.

It says what it is on the box!! Super cool!

Cody pretending he doesn't want to tear into the box. He does though, he's just waiting for me to put the camera down already. After all the gifts he ate at Christmas we learned that he prefers to do his receiving in private. No pictures to incriminate him.

How about a picture of it on my desk. Yep. I'm a nerd but I love building up the suspense. Note taping and filling on the walls - room is in deep reno mode. Moving on!

So, should I open it?

Yeah I should!!

At this point I'm marvelling at the quality of the box it came in.

Cables. Okay, don't panic, not too many.

And here's the moment I gasped out loud and my heart skipped a beat.

I'm telling you, I have never seen anything like it. It's gorgeous!

And because I'm going for 'Biggest Dork Award EVA!' here's a picture of me in my glee.

I couldn't go for a full face shot because the acne on my chin is stroke inducing. Seriously, my hubby said tonight, 'that stuff you bought isn't quite working, is it?'. Good news, he's still alive.

I wish I could give all the ladies at Book Binge a huge hug and I wish you could have been here to see me in all my geeky glee.

Thank you Casee, Rowena, Holly and Isabel for such a great gift!

I've run into just one little problem.

He claims he was just checking the quality.

The E-reader and I are going into hiding!

Oh, massively cool! You lucky girl. And you let Bob touch it? Wow, you are so good. Don't let Cody near it (of course I don't need to tell you that). Have fun with it and let me know how you like it.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that gets so excited about new gadgets. LOL I'm jealous, jealous, jealous. :-D

Some day...some day...some day...

I'm still laughing over, Good news, he's still alive.

LOL, so happy that you got it Cindy! and love the opening the package :) So did you try it out yet? and LOL, Bob reading... I don't think you should be worried about your e-book reader.

LinnieGayl said...

Enjoy, Cindy. I can't wait to find out the names of the first books you load on it.

jmc said...

What'd you read first? What was your first ebookwise readable purchase? Inquiring minds...

Jennie said...

Yay! Lucky Cindy. :)

ames said...

Yay!! I'm so happy for you. Don't let Bob steal it. LOL

Dev said...

I'm so jealous, I admit it :-) Have so much fun breaking in your ereader. What have you read so far?

Holly said...

LOL! YAY!!! I'm so glad you got it. I can't wait to hear what you think of reading on it. I luuuuuurve mine. Absolutely lurrrve it. :)


Oh, and lately MM has been obsessed with mine. It keeps disappearing and then I'll find it hidden under his pillow or on his nightstand...curiouser and curiouser. LOL

CindyS said...

You guys are hilarious! Being protective of battery power I left it plugged in all night.

What I'm reading now is the e-book manual on the reader. SUPER COOL!!!


Holly said...

And, what do you think? Are you having problems reading on it, does the light bother you, is it like reading on a computer screen?

You have to charge it overnight the first time, but get this: It charges fully in about 1/2 hour and the battery lasts for more than 11 hours if you have the backlight set on full. How cool is that?

I'm telling you, I'm more excited than you are. LOL

CindyS said...

Are you kidding!? It's awesome!! I already figured out how to make the font bigger and how to check the battery life - 10 hours!! I can't even believe it. My laptop battery isn't half as awesome. I'm still figuring stuff out but it is SAH-WHEET!

And MM hiding your e-reader under his pillow. Silly MM ;)
