I have Kindle, now. A hand-me-down from LM (Love Muffin). She's now in possession of a better one. Kindle Fire. Nice. Although she WAS upset when she figured out that the Fire doesn't have 3G. Just WiFi. It took a while to make her understand the idea that there's a cost to bandwidth and Amazon isn't going to sell you a Fire with the ability to browse the Internet. Ain't gonna happen. On the other hand, we DO have unlimited data plans on our phones, so she can just turn on the WiFi Hotspot whenever she wants to download a book and she's not on a friendly WiFi - or if she absolutely MUST browse the Internet.
I have discovered (and I have no idea why it doesn't seem to have been shouted to the high heavens by the media) that the "Borrow Books From Your Library" function now works on the Kindle. Yes. You can get books from your local library (most people can, anyway - I don't think EVERY library district is on board, yet) and have them in your Kindle for 14 days.
I did it last evening and it's simple. Easy, in fact. I went to my library's web site, found my way to the E-Books section, selected a book from the "Kindle" list online, told the program what library my card is from, entered my library card number, downloaded the book (it actually goes to and/or comes from Amazon), went to Amazon and clicked on "Get for Kindle" and, because I had my Kindle "On" and the WiFi turned on, it just sent the book to my Kindle. Easy Peasy. Really.
This is going to save me a fortune.
Now all I have to do is find the time to read.
