Managing wish lists
Do you utilize the Save for Later option with your Kindle? Do you download samples? Do you manage a wish list for Kindle titles some other way?
I have put 13 books onto my Save for Later list. I also have 41 samples on my Kindle. (There have been others, but I delete a sample after I buy the book.) In counting the two, I compared and there are no duplications across these two.
I know why I have my "wishes" as two different lists, and it has to do with how I use the Whispernet connection.
Like many others, I wish there were consistencies in the shopping options regardless of whether you are using the browser or the Kindle's built-in networking. (Very high on my list of requirements is the ability to download samples to the PC instead of requiring that they be delivered via Whispernet.
So -- how are you organizing your list of books that you want to buy at some point in the future?

What is "Save for Later"? Is that something that if there when you browse the store via the Kindle?
I NEVER browse the store with my kindle. I always use my PC. I also usually know what I want to buy. I have so much "to read" advice from here and other places that I really don't browse even.

I usually buy current books right away (if $9.99 or less). For pbooks that I am replacing with ebooks, I use the Universal Wish List button. For books I'm unsure of, I download samples.

Um. Usually if I'm on my computer when I see something I want I add the non-Kindle version to my wishlist and include a note that it's available for Kindle. I don't browse the store much on my Kindle--too busy reading :-)
