Questioncan books from the public library go direct into this kindle without the need of a computer?
- Answer It depends. Some libraries use systems like Overdrive, which supports this type of Kindle. Other libraries use other e-reader management software, which does not support this type of Kindle. Check with your local library.
- Answer I have had the batteries last for a few weeks, unless I use it a lot (non-stop for several hours), then I have noticed a decrease in battery life. It definitely lasts substantially longer than when I use my Samsung tablet for reading.
QuestionIs this item refurbished or new?
- Answer I clicked on the link to the kindle. It appears to be a listing for a new kindle. But, Best Buy is your best resource for this. In my experience, listings for refurbished items will include the word refurbished in the title, but I recommend that you either call your local Best Buy and ask, or call the customer service number for their website.
- Answer Yes, you can transfer your books to a new Kindle.
QuestionDo I have to have WiFi to be able to use the Kindle? Do I need to buy 3G to be able to use the Kindle if I do not have WiFi?

- Answer The Kindle's processor is slow. It is meant for reading only. Though you can surf the web, it cannot handle graphics intensive web sites. You will not be able to play games like in a regular tablet like the iPad or Galaxy Tab.
- Answer Yes it does
