Contributed by: Don WinnerBy DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - When I was up in New York back in December, my sister gave my mother a Kindle for her birthday. That was the first time I had ever seen, held, or played with one. After that I decided I wanted one so I ordered it from Amazon with a protective carrying case from Belkin (smart move.) Since then, I have absolutely fallen in love with my Kindle. I've been doing more reading in the past month or so than I have in years. I've already knocked out Tom Clancy's "Dead or Alive," Clive and Dirk Cussler's "Crescent Dawn," and now I'm about halfway through Stieg Larsson's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." I've downloaded a bunch of research and reference material, as well as some cool bedtime stories for my four year old daughter. The battery seems to last forever, it has both 3G and WiFi connectivity, plenty of memory to hold literally thousands of books, it's small, light, and handy. It fits in my back pocket and I can actually read while standing in line at the bank or grocery store. Anyway, if you love to read and live in Panama, having a Kindle puts you in direct and instant contact with the entire Kindle bookstore on Amazon. In short, I'm really diggin' it.
Free To A Good Home: When I got on the airplane to fly back to Panama I bought a hardcover copy of Tom Clancy's newest book "Dead or Alive" for about $40 bucks (expensive, at the Newark airport). Since then I have downloaded the book (for $9.95) and finished it on the Kindle, and I never even got past the first couple of chapters in the actual book so it's practically never even been read. Anyway, I'll give it away to whoever wants it - as long as you promise to keep handing it off to someone else for them to read next. It you're interested give me a call at 6614-0451 or send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org. First come, first serve.
