Sounds normal.

Is this normal?

Wifi wasn't on (that I remember) and the only other thing I can think is I deliver thinks via Whispernet a bunch (free books off Amazon, the auto-deliver option)

Does anyone else have this issue? Is this normal? I would just like a reality check before I call Amazon or anything. I have had it since ... oh probably October, but just started to notice this (since my reading has since picked up).

Thank you!
That sounds normal to me. I can get 12 hours of reading with my PW with WiFi off other than for syncing. I go down to the 15% level before charging. If you just keep reading, the 15% warning will flash on your PW screen when you reach that level.
