Amazon - anytime I find out about them and Manybooks.net- About once a month I will go over the lists to see if anything has been added that I don't have (I usually do a marathon session of downloading to my computer at once and get it over with so they are backed up on my computer and then download to Joy all at once too) Baen Free Library- I do the same as with Manybooks

1) 17 books, 1 short story.

2) 9. I usually don't download a new book until I've finished the one I'm currently reading (I'm not one of those people who can read multiple books at one time.), however, due to the influx of free books on Amazon, plus outrageous savings on Outlander, plus upcoming book clubs, my Kindle now has a ton of stuff on it I have yet to read.

3) Really depends on the day. I would say most days, 1-2, but on others 5 or 6.

4) Since I got my Kindle? < 30 min. I'm a convert, that's for sure!

5) I always read only one book at a time. The only other things I'll read on my Kindle while I'm in the middle of a book are blogs, papers, and samples. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with samples, and instead count reading all of my samples as 1 book.

6) I downloaded a whole bunch when I first got my Kindle, only to delete them when they cluttered up my page. I plan on downloading them only when I really want to read one of them, never more than one at a time. I used freekindlebooks.org when I did download some.

7) Whenever I have a moment of peace....

8 ) November 20th, 2008, 4:04 PM EST

9) Most of the time. Being a relatively new Kindler, I sometimes forget to bring it with me places. But that is happening less and less frequently. (Plus there was that one weekend.....*shudders*).
