Help me catch back up with our book of the month program and make it awesome! Wouldn't it be awesome if each month we have hundreds of people on this website reading the same book around the same time and chatting about it?!

And do you have some kind of "library" where you can see what books you have? It makes me happy to look at the books on my shelves. They are like portals to many worlds just sitting there waiting for me to enter, and I like knowing I can do so at any time. The ereader doesn't take that away from you, does it?

Now i have a few simple questions for the Kindle newbie so forgive me but if anyine has the answers please get back to me ta:
1. How exactly do you download the books? I assume you log on to a site and transfer to a USB device then upload that to the Kindle? Or maybe you download wirelessly?
2. Is payment with credit or debit card or both?
3. How do you go from page to page when reading? I assume its just a tip of the screen but i dont know.
4. Does the battery last long and does the charger come straight out of the box?
5. Can you dowload new releases straight away or is there a set time period to wait before they are available?
6. Should i get one???????
I would be grateful for answers to these questions and before the end of the year your magnificent mod may be Kindle-ing away with the best of them.

Im thinking of the space here in front of me and my 4 shelves are stacked very creatively but soon they are gonna just say "Mike, enough is enough, put up another shelf!" so digital books are very attractive right now. Plus im a bit curious now as to how it would feel reading the electronic books from start to finish.
I get the gist of it now, the downloading option is easy enough it seems, but yeah a bit stingy that you dont get a mains charger as standard but i can live with charging from PC. Meant to ask Fran, are the books (both new and older) expensive, whats the general damage per book? Classics for free is a good option.
I will not be getting one until end of year and im definitely going for a snazzy cover (im currently looking for a diamond-encrusted one!) but im looking forward to how i will take the transition. Still have yet to see many of them around Ireland though, maybe they are hiding in trains or the Luas who knows.
