Kindle Accessories / Re: Choices with built in lights

Thanks for taking the time to give me a detailed answer. I am heading off to check these out right now.

The same exact thing happened to me last week. No books would load so I deleted all the books and they all went into the archive. From there, I just double clicked on each one and they redownloaded and installed and all was back to normal. They even still had my bookmarks. I have a Vista laptop.

I will absolutely do that. Thanks for the link.

The Book Corner / Amazon daily freebies

I posted the link to this blog in another spot of this forum but I think it fits better here.

I check there daily and grab whatever free books I want quickly. Amazon sometimes only leaves them free for hours or days before they are back to retail prices.

Enjoy!  :)

Kindle Accessories / Choices with built in lights
« on: October 10, 2010, 09:00:54 pm »
I really have my heart set on having a light built into my Kindle cover. The only ones I have seen like that are the plain color ones from Amazon.

Since I have joined this forum, I've realized there are many beautiful cover choices out there. But do any of them come with light?

Just download Kindle for PC and put it on there until you get your Kindle. That's what I do. Then you won't be missing out on the free books.

I snagged this book last week when it was free. I wasn't sure I would like it but for free I gave it a try. It fit one of my criteria of being historical fiction. However, being not so fond of paranormal/science fiction/fantasy, I didn't know how I would enjoy a novel with time travel.

Turns out, time travel is an exception to my dislikes. I am fully enjoying this book! It's a great read and I've learned something new about myself. I enjoy time travel and past life stories in my reading. Who knew?  ???

@Deb ... I have lived lots of places in Fairmont but the last home we lived in there was on Burnt Cabin Road which is off East Grafton Road. It's about half way between Fairmont and Grafton. It's a tiny little (blink and you miss it) community called Quiet Dell. Indeed, it IS a small world.

It's really great to meet everyone here! I can't wait to get my real Kindle. I know I'll love it! I love my Kindle for PC because it gives me access to more reading than I could have ever dreamed of, but I'm looking forward to crawling into bed one night without my laptop.  ;)

Completely disgusting! Unfortunately, I've seen things like this more times than I care to remember. The last couple of generations have lost respect for things of value ... especially ones that don't belong to them. It makes me sick at what a wasteful and unappreciative world we live in. Parents need to pass respect on to their children but first they must possess it themselves.

Thanks everyone.  :)

I am originally from Fairmont (Marion County). We lived one year in Berkeley Springs in 2000 (Morgan County. From 2001 to 2007 we lived in Keyser/New Creek (Mineral County) and that is where I consider home. Can't wait to go back one day. I miss the mountains - and that feeling of being home - every single day.

I love to read a wide variety of things. I even read all my kids' text books as they were growing up and in college. My favorites are biographies, autobiographies, historical fiction (not romance so much), true crime books (I'm not a psycho, please don't hate me  :-[), and good mysteries.

What I don't enjoy is science fiction, paranormal, fantasy, and cheesy romance.

Here is a link to a blog that posts the books available free from Amazon that day. Many of these books are returned to regular price within hours or a day of being offered for free so grab what you want when you see them!

Thanks for the welcome!

Since someone has already messaged me asking about it, here is the link to blog that announces the free books from Amazon each day.

I posted it here since I mentioned it in my introduction. I will look around the boards for the appropriate place for it and post it again there.  :)

Hello everyone! I'm Roberta from northern Florida. We moved here 3 years ago to be close to my parents. We are from the beautiful state of West Virginia and hope to return there one day. I am the mother of four mostly grown children. My youngest is a 17 year old son.

I don't yet own a real Kindle. I'm saving for one using 3 different points sites where I have gotten gift cards equally $85 already applied to my Amazon account. I've been working on it less than a month I expect I will own my first Kindle within the next 30 days.

Right now I use Kindle for PC where I have about 50 books, all of which I've gotten free. I check a blog daily that tells me which books Amazon has for free that day. I grab the ones I want fast as they usually go back to regular price within a day. I have a wishlist on Amazon of non-free books that I will be spending my points on after I get my Kindle.

Kindle for PC has been a dream come true for me. The only downfall is that I read in bed a couple of hours each night and my laptop doesn't accommodate that well. Looking forward to owning a real Kindle and looking forward to making some new friends who share my love for reading!

Thanks so much for the straightforward answer! I'm so relieved! The device limit will not affect me since I only have one laptop and the only move I need to make with my books is onto my Kindle. I don't currently have any periodicals, although I plan to subscribe to some once I have a Kindle.  :)

Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting (Kindle) / PC to Kindle w/free books
« on: October 10, 2010, 01:38:11 am »
Hello I'm new the forum and have a question that I hope I'm posting in the right place.

I am currently using Kindle for PC while saving for a real Kindle through several points sites. I now have $85 on my Amazon account so, wich a real Kindle within reach, I have starting thinking about getting my current books onto my Kindle.

Having no disposable income but a love for reading, I check a blog daily that lists all the free books Amazon is offering at the time. I have downloaded many free books ... all of which have now returned to regular price.

I always thought I would be able to move my books from my PC to my Kindle. But, from what I'm reading here, it seems I will have to re-download them from my Amazon account. I'm wondering if they will charge me since none of my books are free any longer? Or will I be able to download them for free since they were free at the time I originally downloaded them?

Thanks in advance for any anwers.  :)
