Did i get a dud kindle?
my battery life certainly isn't as amazing as i was led to believe it would be. after the last full charge and then about a week of reading with the wireless off, i turned on the wireless and it had the low battery exclamation mark icon. i did read a lot during that week (1.5 Song of Ice and Fire books) but it still seems like less than advertised. i haven't tried leaving wireless on, but i doubt it would last 2 weeks like they say it would. i've already had to charge it 4 or 5 times since i got it on sept 12.
should i send it back?

Is it stuck on indexing your books? Type in goobledook like xdsndbw and see if it is still indexing. If so, delete the book and redownload it. I think this Kindle 3 model takes a week or so to sort itself out for some reason.
