    I'm pretty new to Kindle.
    How does that work, downloading books for free?
    I thought books could only be purchased through Amazon and had to be payed for.

    If you go to Amazon's Kindle page, they have a BestSeller's list that shows the top 100 or so "Pay For" and Free kindle books. Also, you can just see them if you search by an author and sort by price. They are are a lot of free books. Obviously, beggars can't be choosers, but if you want classic literature, I'm found most everything I want for free. Some of the classics seem to come in a a free and a non-free version. I suggest the Free!!!

    Books can only obtained through amazon, however there are a fair amount of things that are free on amazon.

    what sold me is that later this year, I'll be able to check out library books from the library on my kindle: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/ama...oks-2011-04-20

    I'm glad for that as I am not thrilled about the price of some kindle books - good example is Koontz's 'fankenstein' series. Good books; quick reads - I can get the paperback off the rack for about $5.99. The kindle version is $9.99 - that defies logic; shouldnt the eVersion be cheaper to produce and deliver?

    Publisher's will sometimes price the ebook version higher than the paperback if they are trying to move more units of the paperback. Usually once the paperback is sold out, or they've remaindered the leftovers, then they'll drop the price.

    OT: Speaking of Koontz's new Frankenstein, I was surprised to find out that only the 4th book came out in HC. I went to purchase it and its a no go for any of the other books. What the hell?

    Only the 4th is in a mass market HC, I've bought them all as they have come out. Charnel House released or is about to release the 4th, are working on 5 as well and did his screenplay for Frankenstein in limited editions.

    I think that is indeed the case.
    I only came as far as the first two, but they were only available in the paperback format.

    I would think there is a huge market for those in HC. Maybe he is planing something down the road. Odd marketing plan on those.

    I have a kindle. Downloaded most of the free books, a few other recommendations, and recently got through Stoker's Dracula using text to speech. Reason: I wanted something to listen to while I drove to work. Without true intonation and inflection the delivery is somewhat flat. Too, there was a lot of Yorkshire speak that didn't translate well at all. In sections is sounded like Stephen Hawkings with tourette's.
