I wouldn't recommend trying to use your Kindle as a web browser. And apparently, if you load pictures on it, you just gunk up the function. So if you don't need to learn these things, the only reason to read this book is if you want to learn how to publish your own book direct to Kindle. Or if you love Kindle and Amazon so much, you want to spend a few hours in a big lovefest over them. I got this book to learn more about my Kindle, but I didn't find it to be very helpful.
If you have a Kindle and are totally new to E-books without a friend to push you along I'd recommend this to get yourself caught up to some of the online resources available to you. Calibre and the database of public domain books alone were worth the purchase price.
