James or Darkginger

Which size Kindle do you have. The 6 inch or 9.7 inch screen?

Another question I just thought of. How long do you find the battery lasts?
On the discussion on the Amazon website (USA) people seem to be finding the K3 has much shorter battery life than Amazon claims, and also shorter than the K2 model.

Mine's the K3, so a 6" screen. I recharge my Kindle about once a week - because I use the case with built in lighting. My husband's only recharged his Kindle (caseless) once since he got it a month ago. I read the discussions prior to buying, but I think perhaps very early shippings of the latest Kindle had a few problems, which have now been ironed out (eg the letters haven't worn off my Kindle!).

Nothing will ever persuade me to get a kindle. I love books, I do not love electronics. I bet it makes slight noise. All electrical equipment hums.... not very loudly, but it does!! Drives me insane.

Thanks for that, Darkginger. I hadn't realised that the K3 was only in a 6" screen.

I also noticed on the Amazon USA site they do have a link for changing your country of registration. From Australia I have to use the USA site too - it's only UK that has it's own site so far.

They only do the 6" versions in the UK, Id not want the big one anyway.

Most people that have battery issues seem to have been leaving the wireless connection on instead of turning it off. This uses far more power.

I pop mine on charge about once a fortnight, but its never run out of power.

"Sorry Pauline. I'd not even consider going to a library. Cannot stand grubby books touched by others.

OCD? Or did your mother tell you you'd get scarlet fever and die from other people's books?

If a book is well-used it's proof that it's worth reading

You're not tied to Amazon with the Kindle either, and kindles have much better reviews, and I am a big Sony fan usually.

Must be fair though, my friend has a Sony, and he loves his too.

" but Kindle is really geared up to downloading from Amazon. For myself, I prefer to be more at arm's length from the media content and buy it from whoever gives the best price.... but each to his own. "

Using amazon is the easiest option, but you can also use Waterstones and the others.

Amazon does tend to be the cheapest though.

Again, Lemain,

You can link up to 5 kindles on your amazon account and all of the books bought by any of those users is availble to any of the other people in that group without extra charge.

Ah, now, Lemain, you may have hit on something there.

Its automatic. Whenever you sync your kindle, it will be updated with everything purchased. So yes, yours would update with anything bought by the wife etc....

How many does your sony hold? The kindle is 3500, obviously depending on length of book, but 3500 is what they are saying is "average".

After reading all the posts I think I would like one but I'm a bit out of touch, can you download any of the cookery books that Amazon sell? This would be great as the cook books are slowly taking over the house. Just a thought, I like reading in the bath, would this be a disaster waiting to happen!
