Kindle Update!

22 Apr

If, like me, you only turn your Kindle2‘s WhisperNet on when you are purchasing something, go ahead and do so now.  Amazon is rolling out software update version 2.0.3 for the Kindle via WhisperNet right now.  I learned about it from one of the Kindle blogs I read, Blog Kindle. You can learn more about the Kindle2’s wireless updates here. Evidently, the update will download automagically and then when you Kindle goes to sleep, the update will be installed.  Ta Da!

The key is that they roll out their updates to groups of users so when you turn it on, it may not be your turn yet.  So you might have to wait patiently, turning your WhisperNet on now and again until the update happens.  While there is a way to update manually, I’m not interested in messing with my Kindle2 too much so I’m going to leave that to others who are willing to “brick” their Kindles. I’ll let mine update on it’s own, thank you. Nobody here but us chickens!

In other news, the Kindle Store is now carrying some of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, including The Hobbit, all three Lord of the Rings books, and his last work (edited posthumously by his son), The Children of Hurin.  If you haven’t read these amazing works lately (well, I haven’t read the last one at all) . . . now’s your chance!

    Update! I started checking for my Update yesterday morning . . . still, nothing. May be a while. I’ll report back on how long it takes.
