Default Kindling

Not for the fireplace.

My DH has given me a Kindle for my birthday. (He had to leave on a trip so we celebrated early.)

I believe that in another thread Steve recommended downloading book purchases to a computer and then transfering via USB cable to the Kindle so as to have a backup. Potentially dumb question: Is it possible to go the other way -- to download the book to the Kindle over Whispernet and transfer a backup to the computer, or is it only a one-way street? Using Whispernet allows me to read seamlessly on computer, Kindle, and Droid and I'm not sure if that will still work if I use the Transfer via Computer option when I purchase books. (?)

Any other tips/advice for this newbie from you veteran Kindle users out there?
