Hope you enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed mine.

You might want to look into the Create Kindle Collections plugin for Calibre, if you haven't already. It's been a big help for me.

Congrats! Which one did you get - WiFi or 3G? what cover did you get?

I'm getting 2 or 3 of the new KSOs next month.

Congratulations

I got mine yesterday, in 36 hours from America to my doorstep in Germany - The global village.....
I'm totally fond of the device even i own it only a day, it's absolutely great.
It took me half an hour to get books on the device, sort some collections and started reading. As an Apple-Addict i thought for a long time if I should buy another device (i own ipad, iphone4, macbook air), but for reading the kindle is a clear winner. I hope you like it as much as I do!
regards

I never tried that. What I'd do in your situation is this:

1. using usb, drag and drop (holding the right mouse button, and choosing move) the entire contents of the documents directory from the Kindle to a directory on the pc.

2. import the azw (and azw1 or tpz) files into Calibre.

3. then have Calibre install those files to the Kindle.

This sounds like a reasonably efficient way to do this. Thanks, I'm going to try! Karma to you! :-D

Yay! You finally got it! It may take a few tries with the lighted cover before it's attached correctly. Make sure to attached the bottom first then the top one will have snap to it when it's in place. You might have to give a firm push the first few times till it's broken in. No gold prongs should be showing at all.

I remember when I first got my cover I was clueless on how to use it. It took me a few tries just to get it attached correctly. Now I can do it like a pro!

Enjoy your Kindle!

Congrats on your new Kindle wyndslash. They are a lot of fun to have. I've had mine about a month now. First I borrowed a K2 from my local library and liked that so much I had to buy my own. I couldn't stand the idea of going back to being kindleless when I'd have to return the K2 to the library. lol. You might find the following link of use. I use the program myself and have had no trouble with it.
