Are they as good as they seem?
I'm away in rural Norfolk this week and it's really handy getting a Kindle version newspaper each day, without having to go to a shop.
Update - 3G bought, delivered, charged, stuff downloaded, fab!
I hadn't realised about the newspaper feature - now that's handy. Only downside appears to be that due to dodgy local reception I only seem to be able to get a reliable 3G signal in the bathroom but as long as I don't drop it in the bath I reckon I'll be OK.
Glad you're pleased.
You only need to use the internet connection when you're downloading items. Otherwise best to turn it off, to conserve the battery.
You will see you can get a free 14-day subscription to newspapers like the Daily Telegraph and the Times.
I don't think I'd risk reading my one in the bath.
I do. I use a ziplock bag.
I'll get a proper beach prof bag for the summer hols.
My screen has developed a problem. Live chat with Amazon they have deregistered the defunct one and are sending me a new one along with a postage paid returns label.
Excellent customer service.
Chuffing love money and it means I now have space in my suitcase for clothes when I go on holiday rather than just paperbacks.
I also love the books for less than a quid on amazon and shackletons diary which is free and mindblowingly good if you stick with it
@Beebs - I had the exact same thing. You'll need to "refresh" your Kindle. I had all of the books on my computer - so I wiped the kindle clean and then put them all back on. Once it had refreshed it works as you expect.
I cannot recommend the customer service enough. They are very friendly and helpful and the turn around time is fantastic.
Emmy I did the update as recommended and then sent all my books wirelessly. Previously once I'd read them I put them into the archive folder but I can't seem to do that anymore
They are now all on my Home page which I don't like
Agree re customer service absolutely spot on.
No, no luck.
Its not the end of the world
knight rider they are great
I had a problem with my screen, spoke to customer support on Saturday and they sent me a replacement which arrived yesterday and a prepaid sticker for courier collection of faulty one.
Given the wifi kindle to my father in law for his 60th this morning.
He had reached the point were there was no wall space left in the house for more shelving,mother in law said that she now intends to reclaim her house
I'm trying to work out what i do with my "real" books.... anyone have any idea?
I think that i've convinced my dad about getting a kindle (due to the wifi downloading). I cant live without it: it's a constant travel companion and a great way to pass the time in queues!
Charity shop, Emmy?
I have kept a few books from Uni.Stroud's Engineering Mathematics is great for propping up the front wheel on the turbo.
+1 for the daily 99p book deal.
