Battery Life

i just got my kindle and was wondering about my battery life...

i last charged it about 36 hours ago, and after about 1.5 days of casual reading i have finished about one and a half short books, this would sum to about 320-330 printed pages (i dont know about kindle pages), i also flipped through some newspapers.. but only for about 2-3 minutes. I plugged the kindle in to the computer once to put some content on it, but not for more than 5 minutes. I have not put a lot of books on it, id say a total of 7 items (books and magazines). My battery life is down about 25 percent.. (i think), its like above the halfway mark, but less than full (and a little more closer to the full battery mark) id estimate a battery life of 77%... however, the website says i should get 2 weeks of reading, and i am down 23-25% in one and a half days (btw: wireless is always off)

is this normal?
