battery doesn't hold charge?

I have had my Kindle 3g for about a month and charged the battery once with no problem. Again today it said battery was low and to charge it which I did. When I unhook the charger cord the screen was blank and when I pushed the button to turn it on (or go back to the page I was on) the light turns green then turns off. Then all I have is either a totally blank page or just the title of the book but no book content. Also when I push the home button it lists the titles of books I have but I can't call them up. Also somehow I have 7 items archived which I didn't do and when I try to pull up one of the archived books I get a message on the screen that it is downloading and when finished it will appear on the home screen or to just stay on that download screen and when downloaded the book will appear on the screen. Nothing happens. Also I noticed before there was a little round circle on the upper left corner of the screen which is not there now.

Any idea what has happened? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Try rebooting. Slide and hold the power switch for about 15s.
