We are excited to now ship Kindle to Canada. Customers in Canada will enjoy:

Price is $259 USD and the total comes up to $311 once you pay shipping and custom fees. This is exciting news for those who like to get books quickly and have a portable library. As the announcement mentions it could take a while for Canadian content selection to grow and unfortunately the web browser isn’t available. I think it is a significant missing feature that you can’t transfer personal documents wirelessy. For a full list of included and not included features see the Canadian Kindle review. It is a real positive that this choice is now available in Canada but some may choose to see what alternatives emerge in the next few months when the choices may become more clear.

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had
    a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your mind prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in
    getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!
