Sorry to keep you waiting Cris - This belonged to my sisteer who kindly gave it to me. I don't know the model except that on the box it says 2010 hope that gives you a lead. In the meantime I'll look for the small booklet it came with. Got it - the geting started page says it's a Kindle DX - hope that helps. Joan
Very happy with your reply Cris - thank you. I'm an absolute novice at this and hope to become better at getting around the Kindle. I've just noticed on the leaflet they send with this that the Kindle Users Guide is also available on line from Amazon. Really dislike this getting old bit - I find the booklet hard to read. I have not as yet registered with Amazon to purchase books because I wanted to read a couple my sister had selected - I hope I'm NOT doing the wrong thing here. She changed her account to her new Kindle.
