Really pissed off!
Kindle is shipped to Togo, Zimbabwe, Vanuatu, Timor-Leste, Kiribati, Mayotte, Latvia and a slew of other countries that most, I had never even heard before. But, they did not ship it to Malaysia.
When oh when will it come to Malaysia? They even shipped it to Thailand. Why not Malaysia??
Wants this :
Kindle 3G (Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 6") is available for $189.
Want these too:
Well, for a girl that mostly always (ahem!) win at Scrabble, it is always fun to pit my greymatter against the computer.
It is also no fun to lug dozens of books with you around. I have different preferences for reading depending on locations and events. For example,
- when on the beaches, with the wind on my face and the sounds of crashing waves in my ears...i like light reading, most probably romance, joke books or simple sci-fi.
- At night, in my hotel room, i like sci-fi.
- At restaurants, i like sci-fi or detectives stories.
- While waiting for my husband to finish looking and selecting fishing tackles, i like sci-fi.
Hmmm...might as well dished the Kindle. I'll bring 2-3 sci-fi books with me since it nearly covers all my need anyway...and the common Scrabble box too. Saved nearly RM750 for not buying the Kindle. Which I can use to buy another 40 sci-fi books.
Amazon lose a 'going-to-be buying a lot of ebooks' customer.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
