First of all, Happy Halloween!
I've had my Amazon Kindle for a few days now, and it's safe to say that I love it.
I'm very impressed by how easy the screen is to read, and, with a good book, you can soon forget that you're reading paper at all.
I'm sure that this is the way forward to reading.
Now, onto three tips that I've picked up over the last few days, which I'm sure will help you enjoy your Kindle even more.
(1) Get a case. It makes holding the Kindle so much easier and makes it seem so much more like a real book. I picked up a really nice leather case from Ebay for far less than the official cases sell for on Amazon.
(2) In the UK Amazon has the web browser disabled. You can set your country to the US in your Kindle settings and link it with a US address to enable the browser (this doesn't help you to buy e-books, but will let you use the browser). If you don't have an address, just use one of the free mail redirect services to grab one.
(3) There's a load of really great free content available, from out of copyright books, to writings that people just want to be read. Don't feel that you have to spend a lot of money buying content. You can even convert your favourite web pages to read later.
So, there you have it. As I'm getting more and more into the Kindle I'll be sure to share some more comprehensive tips down the line.

I’ll keep this short. By this point, anything and everything that can be said has, I’m sure. This is my first Kindle, and I’m hooked. The only real concern I had before it came was that the size of the screen would be too small for pleasant reading. When you first take it out of the box, it does seem a bit small, but when text is on it, it’s just fine. The text on the screen looks great, too…All in all, It’s a great product. It goes with me everywhere. Very quickly, it feels like a natural reading experience. Highly recommended.
I worked in the spa industry for 6 years and I had one client who never came for a spa day without her Kindle. She loved it!
