to tap or not to tap.

I'm not one for manuals, I am more of a learn as I go kind of chick. But sometimes even I have to break down and pick one up. Lucky for me, Peter Meyers wrote a book much cooler than any old manual for the Kindle Fire. He even titled it, Kindle Fire: The Missing Manual, so there's no way you can miss it. It's basically filled with tips that SHOULD have been included in the box when I bought it.

There are two types of people in this world, those who are tech savvy and those who are not. Most of us are the latter, especially since we have been holding out on buying fancy things such as Kindles because we didn't want to lose the little girl in us. Or maybe that's just me. What did I find most important about this manual? Well, since you asked, I immediately wanted to figure out how Netflix worked on my Kindle. Yes, Netflix has a Fire-friendly app, which is free to download and pretty self explanatory if you are used to Netflix on your computer. This manual can also get you all situated with transferring any pictures you want to your Kindle, and help you manage your music. A lot of different apps are plugged throughout, my personal favorite being the "Song of the Day" app. My A.D.D. and I LOVE listening to different types of music, and this app is perfect - a new song pops up everyday. The best part of this resource is that Meyers gives you different "methods" of doing things. Ultimately you can choose what you feel the most comfortable with. And who can complain about comfort? I mean, other than my grandmother.
