    If you own a Kindle Fire, get this book!

    Jim Cheshire is the author of several second-source manuals for various electronic gadgets. His books are well written. The reader will enjoy his no-nonsense, straight-forward, easy-to-understand guidance in learning a new device. Even old pros can pick up a few tricks. Cheshire has also written books for the Nook ereaders, which I own and highly recommend for new users.

    Nice

    Nice, but it needs more punctuation. Some sentences are run-ons.

    Lol

    They didn't make the nook version free, but the kindle.
    Probably to show that we made a fine choice in our nook tablets.
    Nook for the win!
    Besides if you buy an eReader do you want it to be by Amazon....or Barnes and Noble? Hmm......lol
