Oh, and Pacanis, you can download the Kindle app and read your books on any e-device. I have it on my Blackberry, IPad, laptop and PC. Anytime you order a book, it automatically goes to the other devices. You don't even need a Kindle.

One click, it's a beautiful thing!

Welcome to the wonderful world of Kindle! You will love it!

Thanks Alix.

Dead Tree Books... I knew what was being referred to, but I didn't know the acronym either.
That kills me these utility companies that send me a seven page letter every two weeks asking me to go electronic to save a tree... HellOOOOOO.... lolololol

It's certainly a good crash course for me, Dawg.
20 years from now all the "DTB"s will have been burned anyway ;^)

Right now I am "reading" the W-S catalog, June edition.
My gawd! I'm salivating all over the first few pages with all that grilled food. And that turkey and black turtle bean chili...
If you haven't yet opened this up, preferring to look at that rib on the front cover, I highly recommend it.

'life' by keith richards, and 'does the noise in my head...' by steven tyler - both highly entertaining and worthwhile reads - a special treat for fans.

Still on the cooking books - Picked up "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" from Costco the other day. Recipes are great but the story behind it is even better. I like a book where I am learning as much about the author and their food story as the actual recipes!

Thanks, Dawgluver, I am going to look into this for my netbook. I figure with it and my internet stick I don't need a kindle weighing down my purse/bag too!

Where do I find it?
I think you just google download Kindle App for PC or somesuch. Ya know, it's been so long...

It's in BB App store, Ipad/Iphone through their app store, Amazon.com (Kindle), I will have to go back and try to figure out how I got it on my PC and laptop.

As I recall, you need an Amazon account no matter what. Kindle Nation free newsletter may also have advice.

Aha! I googled download Kindle for PC, and it took me to the Amazon site with free download and a listing of free books.
