Another (minor) Kindle irritation

I just got my Kindle today. R had to go pick it up for me because UPS can’t find our house.

And I opened it about thirty minutes ago.

And it is now downloading a new update.

Er, couldn’t I use it before it decided I had to download?

Is the book I bought actually there? I don’t know. If it was in the middle of update, which it was, maybe it got beamed off into Neverneverland.

And, on another thought, do I really want Amazon to know what I read and when I read it?
