Kindling

Made my first actual Kindle purchase this morning. And the winner is...Taken, the new Elvis Cole/Joe Pike novel from Robert Crais. The funny thing is, I'm not even home with my Kindle. Presumably the book will be waiting within its digital home when I arrive home this afternoon. Ah, technology...

Yup, it will download. Handy if you worry about forgetting to grab a sale later in the day and just want to grab it when you see it.

BTW, to save battery life (at least on the older Kindle) you can turn off wireless and only turn it on when you need to download or want to shop. If you've ordered anything, it will download as soon as you flip wireless on.

Welcome to the digital world. I suspect that if you're like me, you'll be making more digital purchases and fewer new paper purchases as time passes.

Paul, good suggestion. I'll definitely try that.

Keith, yeah I think the Kindle will save me a lot of book shelf space that I can use on old books.
