I’m thinking about purchasing a kindle fire. I love to read! lol any way i have a ton of questions. How do you charge it, does the battery die quickly. How do i purchase books on it, can i borrow books for free, and does run of wi fi?
Hey, Charlie, before you think of getting a Kindle Fire consider this:- Kindle Fire doesn’t have microSD slot that, for example, Nook Color has thus it is stuck with 6 GB usable internal storage unlike Nook Color that can get up to 32 GB card in. Kindles are made to make sure you’re tied up to Amazon’s storage on the web (for which you need Wi-Fi connection to get to) and you can only store content you get from Amazon there, not other files. Quoting Amazon on Kindle Fire: “Free cloud storage for all Amazon content”. Get it, Amazon content?- The stats of how long the battery can last (Kindle Fire theory is 7.5 hours) are taken with Wi-Fi off. It will last only about 3 hours if you use it to access content from their Cloud storage over Wi-Fi.- Amazon can spy on your web activity through their new cloud-integrated web browser of Kindle Fire.– lack of microSD slot means that if you decide to root your Kindle Fire, you’ll have to root the actual device thus there will be no coming back. On Nook Color, you can make it boot from a “rooted” microSD card and if you want to get back to the original Nook you can just take out the card and reboot.- Kindle doesn’t support eBooks in ePub format that is the most used format in the world.- Kindle app store contains only Amazon approved apps and it does not include (and will not include) Netflix app that iPad has and Nook Color is getting thus again you’re stuck with Amazon content only.- Amazon confirmed that you cannot download/stream anything to Kindle Fire when traveling outside US.- Amazon says it will review every app in its Appstore for Fire compatibility, as part of an automated process. Rejected apps will include those that rely on a gyroscope, camera, WAN module, Bluetooth, microphone, GPS, or micro SD. Apps are also forbidden from using Google’s Mobile Services (and in-app billing), which, if included, will have to be “gracefully” removed. In terms of actual content, Amazon has outlawed all apps that change the tablet’s UI in any way (including theme- or wallpaper-based tools), as well as any that demand root access.I’d recommend waiting for Nook Color 2 that is rumored to be released by Barnes & Noble shortly.According to recently appeared leaks on the Internet, Nook Color 2 will be released by Barnes & Noble on November 7, and this device sure leaves Kindle Fire in the dust.Leaked specs include:- dial-core 1.2 Ghz processor vs. 1.0 Ghz of Kindle Fire- 1.0 GB of RAM vs. 512 MB of Kindle Fire- 16 GB capacity for apps, videos, photos, ebooks vs. 8 GB of Kindle Fire- microSD slot to expand capacity even further by another 32 GB vs. no expandable capacity of Kindle Fire- 1024 x 800 IPS HD display vs. 1024 x 600 of Kindle Fire- 14.1 oz weight vs. 14.6 oz of Kindle Fire- Netflix and Hulu Plus for millions of movies streaming built-in vs. 13,000 movies in Amazon store that allows no Netflix and Hulu

Kindle only reads the mobi files, so take any book you have and convert it to mobi. I recommend using calibre. As for downloading free books, alot of people use torrents (basically files to be downloaded to your computer through a bit torrent like utorrent) from sites like thepiratebay.org to get free books, but this is also illegal. So I don’t recommend it, of course.
how to borrow on kindle fire.
I just got my kindle today and borrowed run like hell and read 50% . I just noticed the it was for prime. And says monthly limit reached in gray and still gives me the option to buy for 2.99$ what is prime? How do I return it? Did I cost or buy or am I charged? Please help? Thank you so so much
Every brand new Kindle Fire comes with a free month of Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime allows you to borrow one book for free every month, so this was free as long as you clicked on the borrow button and not on the buy button. The book should jut disappear from your Kindle when the loan is up.Amazon Prime also allows you to stream unlimited movies, videos, and TV shows from the Amazon library for free, get free shipping on items from Amazon, get extra free books, as well as better deals on books. Amazon Prime is available for $79 a year.You can borrow books from most public libraries for your Kindle. Just go in and ask if you local library offers this free service.

Kindle Fire Book Help.
I am reading a book on my Kindle Fire and I have to fill out a reading log for school but I don’t know how to tell what page I would be on in the actual book. Can anyone who has a Kindle Fire help me?
This (seems to be) a new feature and I’ve noticed that it depends on the book but if you touch the page stuff will come up well on the bottom it will say Location or Page (I don’t know if that’s the word they actually use for it, sorry). Some have actual pages but unfortunately some don’t 🙁

On your phone, start the Kindle app. There should be an Archived Items folder, and when you go there you select which books you want to download.
How to change location mumber to page numer on book on kindle fire.
For newer Kindles it’ll show page number when you’re reading on a Kindle book, and that’ll match page number on actual books. If you have older Kindles, you’ll only see location number and it can’t be mapped to actual page number…There can be workaround however, say you can install the free Kindle Reading app to the page number. I’ve talked more about page number issues on the Kindle in a previous answer here, see if it helps:http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?…Hope this helps.
