I am SOOOO happy that my kindle was delivered today and not on the 2nd as predicted by the tracker. So far I love the look and feel, but I have a question about downloading books. The amazon store is sooooo slooooow. It takes between one and three minutes to do a search on an author's name. I also downloaded a sample of a book half an hour ago and it still has not shown up on my home screen. Is this normal and I just need to learn patience, is the store slow tonight, or is something wrong? I hate to have my first post as an owner be slightly negative >,< but I'm puzzled. Any reassurance that my kindle is normal would be much appreciated!!

I had to turn mine off and then back on to get my first download to work. After that, I was able to get 3 books in a very short amount of time. But I did notice searching was slow, and assumed there were hundreds of happy new Kindle owners like myself, looking for things to buy.

I'm sure it's slower than usual with all the new Kindle owners testing theirs out. I never shop the Kindle store via my Kindle if my computer is near, though - it's just so much quicker on the computer.
