Too much technology ;+}

Postby G-Girl2 » Sun Nov 10, 2013 3:00 am

In the last two years I've placed most of my books in storage (in part due to space but mostly due to a pair of book eating Basenjis), and I've since been reading solely from my iPad and occasionally my Kindle. The other day I was reading an actual hardback book for the first time in months and when I got to a word I didn't know I pressed and held it. . .waiting for the definition to pop up. The saddest part? I did it twice before I figured out what was wrong.

Yesterday we were given a new Kindle, which we have wanted so we would not have to go out in winter for our books from the library. Matt's granddaughter gave this to us and downloaded all the free games. However, the main reason for wanting one was not downloaded. I understand it takes a WIFI Is that correct, in order to download the books. Where or what must we do to get this done. My daughter just bought a new wifi computer, can she do the downloading for us? PLEASE SOMEONE WHO IS COMPUTER SMART, HHHHEEEELLLLPPP. This new world is changing so fast, we can't keep up, although for 95 I think Matt is doing just wonderfully. We just need a little help. Thanks

Some Kindles have 3G built in and can download without wifi---I'd check my model first to see what it's capable of. Your daughter can have a wi-fi ready computer, but that doesn't mean that she's using wifi at home---just ask, I'm sure she could tell you. If she is, she can download library books for you (your library can help if you haven't already created a sign-in with their website) or, if your library has wi-fi which most do, you can download them there which will at least spare you the necessity of returning books in bad weather.

I'm not certain if you can download library books to your computer and then to your Kindle (I've never tried), but there are more than a million free books, and millions more under a dollar, that you can download to your computer from Amazon and then sync to your Kindle via USB. If you go to Amazon.com and then to the Kindle Support page, they give instructions on how to do this that actually work. ;+}

Thanks for the information. We will visit my daughter next Monday (week from now) and see if she can help. You young'hns seem to know every new thing that comes out. I may have been there when computers were in their infancy, but I'm sure out of the loop now. So thanks for the information, even though some of what you said is "Greek" to me.

I'm not the most computer savvy person around here, but the WiFi is a modem of sorts. It's connected to your internet, whether cable or dish, and it allows you to have computer access in various parts of your home.
