I got it for my birthday on 19th January and so far have charged it twice. I probably use it for 1 hour per day plus the odd couple of extra hours at weekends.
Note to Jezer: don't worry, it can hold over 1000 books. I keep most of mine in Cloud and just download them when I need them. As long as you download all you need for your tour before you leave home.
Good tip, I must learn how to use Cloud
I keep a copy of all my books on my computer.
I download all my new books from Amazon straight onto the computer.
Then I copy them both to the Kindle and a backup folder on my spare hard drive.
Plus it's easy enough to backup the Kindles drive onto my computer.
Of the 2,440 books on my Kindle, I've paid for less than 100.
The rest are free book downloads .........
TBH I can't see the point of downloading them to your computer, unless you actually read the books from there, let along backing them up. Once you have purchased the books on Amazon, they are always available to you anyway. Same with the freebies. all you need is a wifi connection, which you need for both the kindle and the computer.
