As part of our ongoing birthday celebration, this thread is to share cool ideas or other innovative ways you have used your Kindle. I suspect people are doing things and using their Kindles in ways the original developers never imagined. So share your ideas here....we can all learn from each other!

For me, I like to surf websites of various magazines and newspapers. Occasionally, I'll find an article that I want to read but I don't have time right then to do so. So, what I do...copy the article (Ctrl-A), paste into a Word document, and then email it to my Kindle. It will be waiting for me to read at my leisure.

In the run-up to the election, I did this with a number of long analysis articles about the various candidates and issues. Worked great!

Next clever idea....

Love that idea,  have not tried to email anything to my Kindle yet.

In the experimental web browsing I found my local newspaper and my local TV station website.  When I was away from home  I could look at the local radar or other weather conditions.  I was amazed after going to those sites they were listed in my Website links that were built into the Kindle.

I love that idea - I'd been saving the links as favorites and forgetting about them.  Not anymore!  Off to surf to find one to send just for fun!

When we evacuated for hurricane Gustav I used my kindle to access our emergency parish website so that I could know when we would be allowed to return. I also read the local paper as they were doing stories on various neighborhoods and what damage they had sustained. I was fortunate to be able to do this because the internet service in my hotel kept going down.My husband and I had received our Kindle's about a month before this disaster and they were such a godsend.When I'm stressed and worried  reading is my escape and to a lesser degree my husband is the same way. We made it back home ,finally, and the only thing I missed about that hotel was that it has excellent Whispernet.
