How do you get books on your Kindle? (I thought they are always downloaded.)

Sally the best thing to do is go to Curry`s and have a try for yourself. The `flash` is just like when we refresh the computer screen.

I like Alister McGrath, but haven't read this one. Can you let me know what it's like, once you've read it? Cheers.
