Still, I think the original poster should have the option to turn off the reminder if they don't want it.
Ultimately the good folks at Amazon look at the Kindle as a revenue stream, and they are going to do what it takes to maintain and/or grow that revenue stream. If they give customers the option to turn off some forms of marketing/advertising, which is what this is, then they are going to make up that revenue somewhere else. Personally I can tolerate this benign marketing if it means cheaper readers and/or media.
