Don't be nervous. Kindles are very friendly to use. I will admit that while I was waiting for mine to arrive I was looking all over these boards reading the tips that everyone had posted (there are so many). I have also bought Leslies book but I haven't read it yet. I made the mistake of buying a couple other books along with it and started one and the rest is history. I will warn you once you get started reading on it you can't stop. It's a major addiction (kind of like these boards). Enjoy!!!!
My book is written for the Kindle 1. There are lots of similarities between the K1 and the K2 but there are some things that are different. I read your message and saw "Received Kindle 1 hour ago" and thought you had a Kindle version 1 but you may actually have a Kindle 2, right?
Anyway, welcome glad to have you here. Feel free to ask all the questions you want. We're a fun and friendly bunch.
Okay, I've had my Kindle 2 for a few hours now and haven't put it down. Bought Leslie's book and subscribed to a blog and bought 1 book I had been meaning to read anyway. - Can't get too carried away, I think I need to calm down, it's the new toy syndrome!. I'm actually thinking I learned quite a bit and I'm feeling like I'm going to love it . I put it to sleep in it's lovely red leather cover. Is that what you all do every night, or do you charge it?? Can you overcharge it?? I'd appreciate the scoop on that.
One thing I would love to do is finish the book I'm currently reading on the Kindle (so much easier on my eyes) but I guess I'll have to finish it the old fashioned way.
Thanks everybody for your guidance and kind words. I am happy to be involved here.
I had several DTBs to finish before reading on the Kindle. Finally gave it up, gave the books to my friend and replaced them on the Kindle. Just couldn't take my hands off the Kindle long enough to read the DTBs. Enjoy!
