Note: Thanks to “Santa” Steve Windwalker of Kindle Nation Daily for giving me my first-ever Kindle book, delivered wirelessly. It was fun to see how easy it was to follow the link in the e-mail I received announcing the gift, and ending up with Steve’s 99-cent Kindle Free For All on my Kindle with just one click.
