I just got mine for Christmas and I'm loving it!  I haven't been able to figure out how to delete a book from my Kindle once I've read it.  Not delete it entirely but send it back to the Cloud.  Or do I have to go to my Amazon ccount page to do that?  I WILL figure this out!  LOL

Go to Carosell  [dang cant spell it]  Place a finger on the ebook   a black box will popup  Remove from Device.... which will put it into Cloud IF it came from Amazon!  Other wise you lose it all together!  

Got mine Nov 6th LOVE it!

Nice gift! I was thinking of getting one for my birthday in March, but a lot of people are saying the HDMI out doesn't work, and that's what I want it for. So I don't know.

Thank you Barbara!  I was "tapping" instead of "holding".

I've made up my mind....I'll be getting a Fire HD next time they go on sale. I should be able to get an excellent price on my original Fire on ebay. So the upgrade will be way worth it!

Anne they are back on Sale at Radio Shack!  $10 coupon for each $50 before taxes you spend!  As I said before I used the Coupons for Printer Ink!    But you can pick other things.     YES HDMI on the Fire HD works GREAT!  Cord is $10 at Walmart [near cell phones ass]  I download Free movies from Crackle  YouTube & Amazon [so far LOL]  Play GREAT on the Fire & on my TV when I want a bigger screen! 

Look around Radio Shack for some small item & you can get a 4th $10 coupon!  Making the Fire $40 off!

I don't know about Radio Shack, not sure if I'll make it in there this week. We are having a lot of snow (as I am sure you are). Anyhow,  I hate rebates and stuff. I'd rather have money off! I'm going to go ahead and get my Fire ready to sell, I think, as I can use my daughter's new Fire in the meantime. I really want the HD though, I think it will be better on the eyes. I'm glad your micro HD works because I really want to do that, too!

I would rather have cash off also but stores dont seem to do that any more.   Yep we got snow but roads are clear & store are open for these after Christmas End of the year bargains.  Radio Shacks been adv Fire HD for a week now on TV.  Not sure how long it will last.   Looks like if you order online Free Shipping!

You know they can't ship the Fire, none of their retail partners can.  I can wait, Amazon will run another sale sooner or later. I'm really excited though, I know it will be a big upgrade from my original Fire. My daughter's 2nd gen Fire is faster and has a better battery life than the Fire1. The HD will be even better, and I think my DH will go nuts when he hears the speakers and try to take it away from me LOL.

The Speakers are Fantastic!  I have super hearing & always having problems finding speakers I can handle... one reason I dont play the van or any radios in cars etc.  But these are great!  They dont have that background high pitch wine in so many tiny speakers not that tinny sound. 

I didnt know they could ship fires!  They advertise they can...right on the Fire HD adv on their web site...how strange!

Oh I don't believe that....there will be more sales. Perhaps even a permanent price reduction.
