I have just bought a Kindle 3G ( 2 days ago) and am so happy with it, spending all my free time looking at and downloading books, however it has just occured to me, that although the available space is huge, what happens to the books once I have read them? can I delete them? do they then float in cyber space? or do they stay put on my kindle? Lots of questions but an anwser would be appreciated. The same goes for my sample chapters, which are still firmly on my kindle even though I have subsequently bought the book!
The trouble with that method is that you have to arrow down a long way. I have discovered that on my Kindle 3, when you want to delete a book, you go to Home, highlight the title, then arrow left, and Delete? comes up with the Yes option already highlighted. Hope this helps.
Have just purchased a kindle. I see that there are 'free books' available. Are they really free? I have clicked on purchase even though it says 'free' but am reluctant to go to checkout as It may be charged. I am only experimenting so far, until I found a book to actually purchase.
If you click on home and then menu you can see how much space is left (top left). At present I've still got oodles despite loading up on cheap collections of early heavyweight authors and interesting freebies. Don't worry yet!
I have bought a kindle as a present and want to pre load some books before I give it at Christmas. Can register it in my name load the books, then de-register it. Then after christmas re-register in correct name, will books still be there.
A little late to add this I know but if you need to free up space from your Kindle delete the book from the device, it will then lurk in the archived items section ready to be downloaded again for free. If you want to remove a book completely this can be done from the Manage my Kindle section of the Amazon website but remember if you delete them there you will need to purchase them again...
