Always a pleasure to read your posts Jan. Yes,if you have not already bought one of the new Kindle Fire tablets which was launched by Amazon only yesterday you would read most of the book on your Kindle and just go to your laptop or PC when you get a bunch of video clips. Useful that Amazon downloads both to your Kindle and to your PC.
Hi Again Chris:
If you go onto Amazon.com, go to manage your devices and then Get free Kindle Reading Appa. You should be able to get your books downloaded to your Kindle and Kindle on your PC. Give
it a try. Whenever I order books with wildlife pictures, I read them on my computer rather than the Kindle as I get the beautiful colored pictures on my PC where my Kindle II is just black and white (fine for most books). It may works differently for you in South Africa, but it is worth trying.
I just looked into the Kindle Fire. Interesting, but I probably wouldn't use it for movies and other stuff so I don't think I will upgrade at this time. Will be interested in reading people's reports on it once it actually comes out.
