This review is from: The Complete User's Guide To the Amazing Amazon Kindle (First Generation; DRM-Free) (Kindle Edition)
Update August 2008: I noticed the price for this publication has gone up from the $2 range that I paid for it, to $3.99 but I still think if you are a new Kindler it is a helpful tool. I appreciate Mr. Windwalkers help and all of the users input at the KindleKorner on Yahoo Groups. It's great to be able to share shortcuts and hints with other users.
Yes, one could play with the Kindle and eventually find out how to use certain functions, but why do trial and error? Why not have step by step instructions from someone who knows? I'm too impatient, I want to know how to do it NOW.
Having the recommendations for sites and links to visit for more info such as the KindleKorner users group is also another nice feature. The Kindle is a wonderful tool and will revolutionize how we read today just as the iPod did for music listeners. Imagine future generations of students not having to lug bulky bags of books around campus. I am loving my Kindle's adjustable fonts and features. The email function is so cool and handy, as one doesn't always have a WiFi hotspot available when traveling and a laptop is so much more cumbersome. Sending email is a lot like texting on a cellphone what-with the small keyboard, but it is doable - still better on a PC, but in a pinch will do. The Kindle has been the best gift I have ever received. I have a very cool son :)
