There're a lot of free kindle books you can download for a try. Just go to Amazon's kindle books pages and sort according to price, lowest first, and the freebies will come up.
Thanks for the great tip! I did browse a bit in the free field, but saw nothing that I was interested in. I did take the plunge and get a book I wanted to read. I figured, might as well try something I want to read.
Went on my laptop. Ordered my book from the Kindle book store with just a click. I went to my iPhone, opened the Kindle app. It synched and there it was.
I've read about 3 chapters so far and I have to say it is pleasant. Easy on the eyes. Very quick to turn pages with just a swipe. With just a tap on the upper right corner you can bookmark.
My only minor beef(s) is the translation from hardcopy to e-copy. You will find some odd spacing. Couple mispelled words and a charachter in place of a letter (ha$). I had some maps that were included in my e-book, however there was no way to magnify them so I could see them, or at least I haven't found anything.
I like it so far and I am one who enjoys books. This is the first release so I am forgiving of the quirks as I know there should be updates soon.
