I got a Kindle yesterday! Well, my parents helped me get it. I was planning on buying the $139 wi-fi one because we have wi-fi at home so I figured there was no point in spending more money so I could download anywhere. Sadly, NO Targets in New Mexico had that one so I was bummed. My dad offered to pay the difference on the $189 3G and wi-fi one as part of my Christmas present so I could have it now. Of course, I took him up on that offer. 🙂
So far it’s working really well. It was pretty easy to figure out how to use. I’ve already downloaded several free classics from Amazon, Project Gutenberg, Manybooks.net, and the Internet Archive.
I can’t wait for the library to offer ebooks to borrow for Kindles (right now their books are incompatible).
Do you know of any good sites that have free (obviously legal) ebooks?
