Yet Another Kindle Convert
So, for Christmas I asked for a Kindle. I'm hoping to store as much public domain philosophy on it as I can manage, and thereby avoid buying textbooks whenever possible.
Because of Amazon's shipping policies when it comes to international Kindle orders, my shiny new e-reader is safely ensconced in The Future. I've been assured it's making its way to the Present, but it may take a while.
In the mean time, I am trying to gather as much information as possible, so: any suggestions from those of you who already have Kindles? Things I should do? Shouldn't do? What are the best places to find books (free books? DRM-free books)? What ought I to download? How long is the window usually between a book's hardcopy release and it's digital release? Does amazon hate me in any other ways for being Canadian? Etc?
Thanks in advance!
