James, you mention you have 1100 books on your kindle, and if you don't like one you will erase it. Could you tell me how you would do that without erasing everything? Someone told me once when you reach your maximum (I think it's 3500) you had to buy a new kindle!!! I think they were having me on......
Cheers.

In case James doesn't get to you right away; to remove content from your Kindle, press the Home button and use the 5 way controller to underline the item you want to delete then press the left arrow on the 5 way controller to select "remove from device" and then press the centre of the controller to complete the removal. The item will be archived at Amazon so that you can get it back at a later date if you want to. Hope this helps.

Hi Liz,
Many thanks for the information about removal of books on the kindle. I really am most grateful.

You're welcome....

Grannie. I have an idea that it's this weekend that James gets the keys to his new place so I imagine he's up to his eyes with all sorts.

FAO Grannie Cool!

Hi!

Sorry, only just seen this. I get my keys on Wed, I accidentally put the wrong date on facebook but Liz is right, Im VERY busy! :)

Anyway, Liz has already told you how to do it, I thought I'd expand a little.

No, you don't have to buy a new one, you can delete anything you want to, as explained by Liz.

The 3500 figure is just an average. Think of the kindle essentially as just a hard drive with a screen on it. If the books are smaller, you will fit more on, and if they are larger, then less.

Although I have 1100 books on mine, the majority of which, I'd say are "average" in size, I am only using up a fifth of the capacity, so I think I'll be able to get quite a few more than 3500 on mine. I think Amazon have been quite conservative with the 3500 figure.

I really do love my kindle though, best purchase for a long time!

Hi James,
Thank you for replying to my query about removing books from Kindle.
I have noted all the advice I have been given.
Brilliant little machine as you say. No more plastic bags of paperbacks when we go to the Orkney in the summer. Other-half can fish all day, and I can put my feet up with my Kindle.......Sorted!!
I hope your move goes well with no problems. We last moved in 1975 and we said "Never again". We intend to leave here feet first, but certainly not yet.....I want to read all those books!!!!
Goodluck and cheers.

I know how you feel, Grannie Cool. We plan to move later this year and I'm not looking forward to the actual moving bit.
Hope it goes well for you, James. I imagine it's hard to find affordable places in London (assuming you're still there). I'm sure you'll enjoy having your own place again - and happy cooking!!

Grannie Cool & Sonya.

Grannie, not moved since 1975! Blimey, I was not even born then! :)

My Dad was a policeman, so I am used to moving, never more than a couple of years in the same place. When Dad moved station, we moved house. I like to think its why I make friends quite easily now, it was a case of having to back then!

Sonya, you are correct about London, so expensive. Im on a very tight budget for now, London was just not possible, so I'll be back in Brighton. Beautiful old regency building, even if my new flat is the size of a shoe box! Lovely views and beautiful big windows though!

sounds lovely James - Brighton's fab. We've had some really good nights out down there over the years (lived not far away in surrey)

last time i came over my sister and i went shopping in the Lanes and for lunch - lovely!

glad to hear you're getting settled. Hope your kitchen's nice?

I agree - Brighton is great and I love The Lanes.
When my parents lived at Hove I visited there several times. As you lived there before I guess you know it quite well. Hope the move went/is going, OK and you settle in quickly.

Hove, actually

I've just got back from a week in Hove - it's my home town, and my Dad still lives there (up near Hove Park). I wouldn't want to move back from Ireland, but I do love the place and look forward to my visits - and stocking up on spices etc. that I can't get here!

Hove

ah you're up the posh end, eh!?!!?

Sea air will do you good - back to the seaside in time for summer, fab

Hove, actually

Yes, does sound Posh. I thought that would be as expensive as London!!
My father now lives in Worthing, but would much rather be back in Hove, I think. Lots of different restaurants and only a walk into Brighton.
