@Yvonne Smith, Pardon my ignorance, but I need some information and you seem to be the most informative on manby of these products. I deleted the kindle app on my mini iPad, thinking I could get rid of all those books I have read, then reload the kindle app and start over. My mini iPad is too old to take the now available Kindle App leaving me unable to read books on my mimi. So I am looking at the Kindle 7. My question is,what else can I do with the Kindle 7 read the news on CNN or what? Or is the Kindle 7 mostly or only good for reading books. I do regret deleting the app but what's done is done and sometime I'm fast on the trigger at deleting. If you'd rather not get into this, delete it. Thanks.
