    Howdy, folks. I'm Jim Chambers, a retired civil engineer. I'm married to Deborah, and we have no kids.

    I've written one book (so far) titled "Recollections: A Baby Boomer's Memories of the Fabulous Fifties."

    I have an Amazon Kindle, but I also use my iPad for reading ebooks. And for playing games (don't ask how long it took me to clear every level of "Angry Birds").

    Cheers,
    JimC

    Glad to have you here Jim!

    I have to say I sold my sony reader after getting the iPad. The iPad is for me a much better readng experience....... Plus, in like being able to buy books and read them from just about any ebook store.....

    Anyway, dig right in to the site, and enjoy. :)

    Thanks, Bremen. I have to say up front that as fiercely loyal as I am to the Kindle, the iPad does make a better ebook reader. Of course there are a lot of other issues involved in comparing the two devices, and no doubt their differences and relative merits have already been debated ad infinitum.

    Welcome to the forum! Thanks to the Kindle app we can read your book on the iPad, too!

    My kindle sits unused. I transferred the books to my iPad Kindle app, and haven't looked back. Had plans to give my kindle to family, but once they see my iPad, they don't want it! :)
