Smile Hello from Brockville, Ontario CANADA

My wife ordered me a Kindle 3 for Christmas and it arrived a couple of days ago. It's my first e-reader and I'm excited about learning what it can do. Hard to resist the temptation of wasting too much time on the experimental browser, which is not bad but can be a time sink testing what web-sites you can and can't use.

I've downloaded a couple of books from Amazon and experimented with converting free e-books in Calibre and sending to Kindle as personal documents. Having fun.

Welcome to MR, and if you get half as much pleasure from your Kindle as I do from mine, you're in for a treat!

No, I hadn't noticed them yet. I just took a look at the list now. Wow, so many to choose from. I guess I should try reading Mobipocket-Guide-2011-01-15 first.

Already I've spent too much time struggling with the Kindle 3 browser. It's good enough to be addictive and bad enough to be aggravating. Right now the browser kind of straddles the line between 'experimental' and 'excremental'. Great for browsing Google Reader and Twitter, for example, as long as you don't want to open any links.
