    I think I have finally figured out my Kindle, and I LOVE it!

    Can we start a list of good downloads? List the price also. I'm looking for good <free> ones especially!

    I have downloaded a lot of free classic books for the Kindle. Some of the titles are:

    The Christmas Carol
    Jane Austen Books (Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice)

    Go to the Amazon website and look for free Kindle books.

    I LOVE my Kindle. I read books by Nicholas Sparks, Larson Steig, and many others.

    Thought I would get you started...

    Enjoy your Kindle!

    If you do a search on Amazon for free Kindle books you get tons of lists. There's a lot more free than I thought.

    I downloaded Anne of Green Gables and a couple others in the series (free).
    Where Angels Go - Debbie Macomber
    Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder - Joanne Fluke

    those two were only about $1 or $2 each

    I also downloaded Mini-Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella but it was $9 since it's a newer book.

    I love Debbie Macomber! I downloaded an older Fern Michaels that I hadn't read. It was around $3.

    I don't have a Kindle but do you think I could download books to my computer? (I feel like such a dork asking this question, just goes to show how technologically inept I am)

    If you go to Project Gutenberg you can download books for any ereader (or for your computer) for free! They are all public domain pieces, so it's totally legal.

    Rockhubby uses his for a discounted delivery system for the local paper and the New York Times, among other periodicals. It's much easier on his astigmatism than a print paper.
