I don't understand books delivered by whispernet

It means they're delivered by wifi(a wireless transmitter that is connected to your home internet). If you don't have it you can still download via your computer via usb cable. If you don't understand any of this then either go to a store where they sell it and ask or google what you want to know and do the research yourself...oddly enough no one owes you an explanation...

Besides WiFi, it also refers to the 3G that some Kindles have. Whispernet is just the "cutesy" name that Amazon gave to its book delivery network, WiFi or 3G.

When you turn on your Fire, you should see the book cover on the carousel. Tap on it and it should open the book.

Have you looked at the help pages for your Fire? There are different models of Fire. Click on Help at the top of the screen, then find "Getting Started with your Kindle".

Lester, is your WiFi on? If so, press "sync"

Look under books. If you don't see your book under the "device" tab, check the "cloud" tab.

Edited to add: You didn't say which Fire you had, so i cannot get more specific.

Is whispernet only on a Kindle device, or is it also available thru the kindle app?

It just means the Kindle device has wireless capability...that you can download a book without having to attach a cable to the device and to a computer.
The device your app is on should have wireless capability - wifi or 3G/4G.
