I downloaded this when it was being given away for free. I've had my Kindle for a few months and figured that, even though this book collection might be out of date (as stated in the description), it probably still had some things I could learn. Bufo Calvin is known as a "Kindle Guru".

The author states in the intro to the books that "these are the original books, [but] they aren't the original versions." Well, the books are still filled with typos, wording mistakes and tense errors. It drove me crazy.

In the first book, ILMK!, here are a lot of jokes and silly Kindle stories dispersed through. The author calls them kriddles, klimericks, and khumor. It just wasn't for me. I think you need a certain sense of humor to enjoy that stuff.

Q: How do readaholics pay their monthly bills?
A: By the Kindle of their teeth.

Q: What state has the most e-book readers?
A: Kindle-tucky.

The second book was more useful, about various Kindle websites and where to find free books. There are a lot of hyperlinks to take you right where you need to go. I also enjoyed the third book, the FAQ, which is the largest of the three books. The Kindle doesn't come with much of a User's Guide, so there are always things to learn, like shared accounts and working with pdf files. Some questions were very rudimentary, but I think it pays to at least skim through them.

I would never recommend this collection, but I'm rating this three stars because there *is* still some valuable information here. I did learn a bit. And I knew going into it that it was a bit outdated.

Having been a subscriber of Bufo Calvin's "I Love My Kindle" blog since the first of this year, I've learned more about Kindles and Amazon than I ever thought I could. He writes in a way that even a non-techno person like myself can understand (I still can't figure out the cell phone I've had for 4 years :)). Thanks Bufo! When his compilation book "The Kindle Kollection: Three Early Books About the Kindle" became available and was free (thanks, again!) I decided to download it and see what it was about. There is a great deal of humor and information packed into these three small books. Easy to read and understand. I've had my K2 since March 2010 and have had some questions about why and how - nothing that kept me from using it as Amazon has created a device that even the techno challenged can figure out. I have only been reading on it - couldn't figure out how to add MP3 files or documents to it. I had several Ah Ha! moments reading the Kollection. I would highly recommend this Kollection to anyone who has a K1, K2 or KDX and wants to delve deeper into what your Kindle can really do. Plus, you have to read the Star Trek parody. It's hecklarious!!

I have one of the original Kindles and have used it mainly for reading (no music, movies, e-mail, etc.) I remember reading my Kindle User's Guide three years ago, but since it was all new to me at the time, I didn't understand most of the tips. Now that I'm used to the basic functions of my Kindle, I was ready for some more advanced info and I certainly found it in Calvin's books.

I appreciated his tips on playing music, organizing my books into collections, searching for a passage in a book using key words, and even his explaining how to play mine sweeper.

He lists non-Amazon sites for downloading e-books and gives detailed instructions for how to get these books onto your e-reader.

Yes, some of this stuff might be outdated for the newest Kindle models, but it was a big help to me.
