So far, I'm totally impressed with my Kindle. I didn't have any problems figuring out how to get it started. Once you plug it into an outlet or your computer to charge the battery, there are instructions on the Kindle on how to go from there. If you can read, you can figure out how it works. I'm still learning how to work my cell phone I got 6 months ago, so don't think I'm some kind of gadget genius.
As time goes on, I'll give updates on how it works and maybe even some of the books I've read thanks to my Kindle. Yeah, I'm a little excited about this. Not only did I win a really cool prize from Bitten By Books, it showed up on my doorstep on my birthday. Life is grand.
