...and I should probably just google it.

I just bought a book for my kindle. I forgot though, I don't have wireless internet (or any internet) at home right now.

How else can I get it delivered on my kindle? Can I connect it to the wireless at my local starbucks?

If it's anything like the Nook, you can get it as long as you connect to wireless somewhere, so a Starbucks or Barnes and Noble should work.

Kindle user - yes, you can connect anywhere and it should push right to your Kindle.

Thanks I just know when I connect at home/G's house, I put the wireless password in and then it connects.

At Starbucks I have to do this whole check-the-box-to-agree-to-their-terms-of-service thing in the browser, and I didn't know if that was possible on my kindle.

If you don't have wireless but at least have access to an Internet connection, you can download through the computer and USB cord attached to the kindle device. You can call the kindle help number and they will walk you through.

I had a kindle abroad when it was just for US wireless and I did everything by wire.

You plug it in through usb to your computer. When you buy the book on amazon it asks "To which device do you want us to send the book".

From the drop down menu you choose "Download to pc"

After that you just drag and drop the book file (.azw) into your kindle file (documents) and it will show up on your kindle.

It seems hard, but the whole process takes less than 1 or 2 minutes.

hope this helps
