Kindle How To: Help! I archived/deleted a book and can't get it back!

AH! I deleted a book and can't find it on my Kindle!! What do I do now!?!? *panic sets in* (sound familiar?)  Don't get too scared! We can get it back!!

** Wireless or 3G is required **

Bringing a Kindle book back from the Archives (not the Archives!! ahh!!.. ha.. ahaha.. ha... anyways..)
Step 1: Turn on your Kindle and go to the home page
Step 2: Scroll down using the arrow pad to the 'archived items'
Step 3: Open the Archives by clicking on it.
Step 4:  Find the book you *deleted*
Step 5: Click on it - if your wireless or 3G is off, you will see a message box asking if you want to turn it on.  Make sure you click 'ok' or this will not work.
Step 6: The item will begin downloading back onto your Kindle. Your book is saved!! Now, if you don't click on the home button after it is downloaded, the book will automatically open.  If it was in a collection when you *deleted* it, then it will re-appear back in that collection.

(sigh of relief)  See!! Everything is going to be ok!

Have a book to recommend? Have you read any of these already? If so, please email me or leave a comment with the subject line of *recommendation* or *review* along with the title and author.  Happy reading!
