Book Description

NOTE: The full text of this book is now available in the Kindle Kollection, along with two other early Kindle books by Bufo Calvin. Please order that book instead to get a better value.

Do you love your Kindle? Did you just get one as a gift?

This fun article will give you some humor (Kindle limericks, anyone?), background, and links from Bufo Calvin. Not so much a "how to" as a "why is that?", it's not about the nuts and bolts mechanics, but about having fun and learning a bit more about Amazon's magic reading machine.

This version has been expanded and updated.

Iincludes "The Happy Little Bookworm", "The Kindle Encounter", and "Quoth My Kindle: Read Some More".

4.0 out of 5 stars 60% of humor and 40% of tips and explanations January 19, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is a collection of 74 "articles" that are easy to read and full of humor. Perfect reading indeed: "I love this book! It's a real button-pusher." (Quotation from this book, location 727.)

Actually, first riddle is waiting for you already on the first page: would you like to know which edition of the book you are reading? Here is an answer: "1st Revised Edition", "5th edition of the revised version (11th edition overall)". Got it? :) If not, it's explained in plain language on location 1272: this is 2nd version of ILMK.

The author though about the reader convenience and has tagged each article with one of 7 tag types: explanations, tricks, reference, how to, humor, limericks, and riddles. That was an excellent idea that simplifies filtering the information you are looking for by using of Kindle Search function. So 40% of the articles are the explanations, tricks, references, and how-to's, while 60% of them are Kindle humor. If you are looking for more Kindle-related humor this book is the right one. Otherwise I would recommend buying another book of the same author: The Collected I Love My Kindle Blog Volume 1. Just wanted "to make sure we're all on the same location on this decision." (This book, location 727.)

PS. Tip: do not forget to bookmark Table of Content as corresponding position in the menu is deactivated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blog or book, a must have for Kindle owners August 31, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not clear whether I am reviewing the blog (available by subscription in the Kindle store: Kindle Blogs>Internet & Technology>I Love My Kindle) or the book but I have both and they are phenomenal. The author gives an incredible amount of practical, usable information about getting the most from your Kindle but in an entertaining/not-going-to-put-you-to-sleep kind of way. He also is a talented writer in his own right and throws in wonderful stories with the Kindle usually playing a role in some capacity. One of the very BEST parts of his blog is the copious amount of free Kindle book information every day! When I got my Kindle I thought I would save money getting less expensive ebooks. My Kindle library is over 90% free books and for the most part they are very GOOD books. I have 308 books on my Kindle and another 165 archived and considering I paid $0.00 for over 90% of them, I consider that quite a substantial savings! You will definitely recoup the 99 cent per month subscription cost many times over in free books and be entertained to boot!
