"I somehow missed that this was happening a few months back, so maybe other people did, too.

My Kindle for PC updated itself silently to version 1.19, which is compatible with Amazon's latest formatting. This is great for being able to use the new formatting! This is not so great if you use Calibre to manage your library. Calibre can't read or even recognize the new format, so can't import your books.

If you use Calibre, the easiest thing to do is to uninstall Kindle 1.19 and reinstall the older version, 1.17, and make sure that the "automatically update" box is unchecked.

The Mobileread forum has a thread on how to do this, including direct links to safe downloads of v 1.17 on Amazon. It also has instructions for other methods, if you don't want to downgrade your Kindle for PC/Mac."
OK, all. I decided to keep the Kindle Paperwhite and start playing with it. Thanks to all of you lovely people who shared your knowledge with me. I really appreciate it. I'm probably going to have more questions but here's the first one.

I managed to open the browser just fine and log into my google email account. Now I can't figure out how to close the browser. I'd like to be able to open and close the browser at will and only be online when I want to. Is this possible? Thanks.

EDIT: I just answered my own question by doing further research. I see that I have to enable airplane mode to switch off the wifi. But I still would like to know how to close the browser without having to resort to that if there is another way.
Howdy, y'all. I'm having a bit of a problem with my Kindle Fire... it displays all the fanfiction I've put on it as "Books"! This is very bad, because, well, as you may know, fanfiction isn't exactly something I'd want the average "Ooh, can I look at your Kindle" person to see when they start browsing through my books.

I had previously converted the fanfiction files (from .pdf to .mobi) through Calibre, and yes, the [PDOC] tag is still there... which is why I don't understand why the Kindle is filing them under "Books." Does anyone know how to fix this? Now Selling More Kindle Books Than Print Books

Now if they just could figure out the whole lending business, I would be even happier...
