*Betrothed* and other Kindle/Project Gutenberg users

I read in the Kindle post from yesterday that you use Project Gutenberg to get some of your free books.  I'm really not tech-savvy so I'm probably being ridiculously stupid here, but I tried downloading the Kindle file of a book from the Project Gutenberg website, and my computer won't recognize it or open it.  Do I have to open it in a certain format? 

Thanks, sorry to bug you.

    No, you're not doing it wrong.  You won't be able to open the file open your computer.  Just download it and drag and drop it to the ebook folder (it may be called something other than ebook. but it should give you that gist).  It will open on your Kindle.

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    ohh! I was just looking up stuff about Gutenberg project for my Kindle this weekend.

    Thanks, B!

    Me too.  Thanks - I'll probably be bugging you for info.  First dumb question: I have the 2nd generation Kindle.  Does this matter?  Does it work the same with downloads as the newer models?  I'd like to get some of the Gutenberg content.

    Nope, that's what I have as well.  It should still work.

    Is this a question for me too? ;-)  Yes, they come preloaded onto the Kindle.  How do you think I found all these answers?

    Oh, that's rather fancy, actually.  So it's loaded onto the Kindle already, just like any other Kindle book you can download?

    If it does, I'm totally going to buy one.  I don't want one to read with, I just want it to wash my car.

    I didn't buy the car washing attachment, so I don't know, Cew :)

    J- It's really cool.  The Kindle arrives with the manual on it and it was definitely the first book I read on it.
