Yay!  Happy dance of joy!  Really, that was the only thing I don't like about my Kindle.  And now it's a moot point!

I'm glad! I just hope, after downloading it to PC, it can be emailed to the Kindle. I would hate to have to hook the kindle up to load library books.

Oh yes, I am concerned it's going to be a logistical nightmare but still very excited all the same!
