Hard to waiting.

I'm waiting for my kindle. It's really hard to wait so long.


Even though I live outside of U.S. I decide to get a kindle. There are some people who got their kindle as present from their American friend on Amazon Kindle Discussion Forum. Well, I'm not that lucky. I'll have a kindle. But since I left U.S, I deleted my U.S. bank account. I totally regreat that for ... 1 weeks? I don't remember. anyway I asked one of my friend who stay in U.S. about making new account-new deposit card-and rent it for me. I'm not sure she'll like it. Well, I don't think it's a good idea to ask someone that heavy thing. But there was nothing I could do.


I found other E-book sites beside Amazon(They'd like to sell Ebook for U.S only) and I'll get some of book from there, but there is one book I deadly love to read and that's only in Amazon. Arrrgh.


I read most of Kindle Discussion Forum, and read Kindle Fan Guide (As PDF) and study about kindle. It's just too hard to wait and I had enough time to web surf. and I have no way to reach Kindle books from Amazon(I guess I need to stay on the fictionwise and feedbooks and webscrpition)


I'm reading Sharing Knife Series by Lois McMaster Bujold. I just done yesterday. I had done read & listen (I'm not sure spell is correct?) with audio-book. It was good. Actually, very good. I had a lot of sympathy for Fawn. I'm not twenty, but I can vividly remember that time- that was hard. It would be really hard to be twenty(or Eighteen) as a youngest doughter of family at the small farm.


At the #1, Fawn met Dag. They like each other.

At the #2, They just married. But it's not like other romances;just they married and have children and sooo happy and it's over. They married, and Dag's family does not like that. Dag's clan councile does not think their marriage is valid. (Well, Not exactly.) So Dag and Fawn are going to travel.


God, I just would love to read #3 Passage ! and #4 will be comming soon, before this spring.

If I'm going to order that book as paper-back or hard-cover style, it would take 2 weeks to come.

There is one #3 Passage on the Fictionwise, but it's not available format for kindle. God. I'm just sad.


I'm look forward to find other way around..struggling.

Hey. I saw you on the MobileRead forums, saw you're from Korea, and decided to check out your blog. I spent a year based in Chinhae with the U.S. Navy. It was a really good experience. I loved my time in Korea. Great country. But I digress.

I looked up Passage on Fictionwise and saw that it's in both Mobipocket and Microsoft Reader format. There's a way to remove the DRM restrictions from both of these formats, allowing you to put the content on your Kindle. The Kindle actually supports Mobipocket natively so you wouldn't even have to convert formats. There's more information on this stuff at Mobileread, if you're interested.

BooksOnBoard.com is another good e-books site, just so you know. Out of curiosity, what book are you looking for that you can only find at Amazon?

Hi, Spider-Matt. I went your blog. It is nice. I'd like to say you hello or something like that, But I couldn't find any guest board or something. For your blog, comment hi on some article that I cannot sympathy, looks like bad manner.

I have no idea with DRMed format books for Kindle... I guess I'd like to. I found that way and tried and failed and didn't try again. but I guess I should try again.

If you plan to visit Korea again, I'd like to happy to meet you. :-)

Thank you for visiting my blog.
Bye bye~
