The Kindle Fire is a unique device and many of its most useful features lie just beneath the surface. A little guidance can greatly enhance your enjoyment of your Kindle Fire.
This tutorial and reference manual was written to provide that guidance. It includes three types of material for your edification and enjoyment, which you WON’T find in the documentation included with your Kindle Fire:
(1) COMPLETE, illustrated, step-by-step directions on all the essential operations of the Kindle Fire.
(2) Explanations and insights to help you UNDERSTAND the logic and organization of your Kindle Fire — what makes it tick.
(3) TIPS, TRICKS, and SHORTCUTS that go beyond the basic instructions to help you get the most from your Kindle Fire.
The book also includes extensive guidance for finding FREE AND INEXPENSIVE KINDLE FIRE CONTENT: periodicals, music, videos, games, apps, and especially Kindle books.
The book was designed, written, and formatted specifically for the Kindle. You can read it on your Kindle Fire. Or, if you would rather read it on a separate device while you learn your Kindle Fire, you can read it on any other Kindle device or free reading app, or in your web browser with the free Kindle Cloud Reader.
