I received an interesting email from Amazon yesterday: an invitation to download KINDLE for PC (and i-Phones, as well) Both apps are FREE.
I downloaded the KINDLE for PC
(very quick and painless), and within a couple minutes, I bought my first e-book! One quick click, it charged the cc I use for Amazon (Amex), and whoosh...the new book was in my Desktop Kindle Reader! (called Whispersync Beta Version)
It's very nice, and I'm reading this book with pleasure. It bookmarks my place, too!
I also downloaded a free book!
