HASH(0xa24060e4) out of 5 stars Great book by writer of great blog: don't confuse them; book is super handy, and blog helpful, esp. for newbees. Oct. 13 2010

This review comments on both the BOOK as well as Michael's DAILY BLOG of the same or similar name. Both are set up to help you find free books and give help to lost or confused Kindlers. In the daily BLOG, the helpful links to the product saves typing/searching time. Before Amazon ranked top sellers WITHOUT sifting free books [which was not so long ago] this blog found them for us. Now that Amazon ranks bestseller free books separately, we still get numerous tips on Kindle functions and clarifications. Michael also refers out to other free/cheap sources online besides Amazon. I never would have found SMASHWORDS or tackled MOBIPOCKET, just for two examples, without the gentle and friendly guidance of this blog. I think of the book as my OVERALL guide and the blog as my current and updated info on finding inexpensive and quality sites for books. I bought the book and have subscribed for over a year to the blog: as a result I have 147 free books in my UNREAD collection! So Michael has really saved me some money as well as help me locate great books, some of which I've paid for, too! BOTH Book and Blog are worth every cent. Thanks!

HASH(0xa0ba0f48) out of 5 stars How to Love Your Kindle Even More Nov. 23 2010
By Nicholas Sabalos, Jr. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've had my Kindle for four months....I read through the User Manual early-on....and, like so many others, have found my Kindle one of the best electronic device (and BOOK!) purchases I've ever made.

That said, this engaging and well-done Kindle guide has only deepened my understanding, enjoyment and love of this device. The author's conversational and understanding style makes for exceptionally easy and, most importantly, USEFUL reading. The book is well-indexed from the Table of Contents and serves as a ready reference whenever I need an answer. The author addresses all the stuff we Kindle users really care about.

In addition, there is an extensive list of Kindle/mobile-friendly websites one can access directly from the links in the book to the web. Everything from news, sports, travel, weather and business sites are listed. This list alone makes this book more than worth the measly 99 cents' cost.

The book is updated frequently and reflects all the latest software and Kindle versions available.

Along with the author's superb daily Kindle blog Free Kindle Books Plus a Few Other Tips (perched at #1 in Kindle blogs), this is the best 99 cents investment one can make.

You'll love your Kindle whole lot more with this ready-reference at your Kindle fingertips.

Lots of tips in here, some I was able to see in the Kindle manual (yes I read it) but even more that are not included such as I was able to check in for my flight using my Kindle and display the boarding pass electronically for use on continental air. sure beats having to find a printer when you are in a hotel.

I just did a quick read of this book and found so many helpful tips and suggestions. I am not extremely computer literate, but I believe the instructions provided are detailed enough that even I would be able to follow them. I had no idea that a Kindle could do so many things. This is a valuable guide for any Kindle owner.

HASH(0xa222e81c) out of 5 stars Little More A Than User's Manual Nov. 16 2010
By Reviewer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you haven't reading the user's manual that comes free on your Kindle then most of this will be wonderful and helpful information for you. If you have more than skimmed the user's manual, then this will be a disappointment - as it is simply a regurgitation of what is already there. Of course there were a few helpful hints and I did pay only 99 cents for this - so I have to put the cost and content into perspective. Because of the low cost, and the sprinkling of a few things that weren't in the user's manual, I gave it a 3 star... otherwise it would've been much less. I would recommend, however, the author's blog 'Free Kindle Books Plus a Few Other Tips' - which I gladly rated a 5 star!
