Help please - OS X 10.5.8 Macbook Pro

Hi all,

I have a Macbook Pro that is now about 3 years old, still going well.I have just gone to open my Kindle app (which I really need because I have a textbook on there) and it has said that my current operating system doesn't support Kindle.I have been running it though, so I'm guessing it's a Kindle upgrade, and going to amazon.com it mentions that the Kindle for Mac app is for 10.6 and above.

Does anyone have any advice of what to do!I'm not sure what I can download as an upgrade without causing problems (I am not very good with the real nuts and bolts technical stuff) and really don't want to kill my computer.I've heard that getting Snow Leopard may cause big problems if my computer can't handle it.but if that's not the case I'm happy to do that also.

Any advice is GREATLY appreciated. it's a bit of a quandry for me :-)

good grief - I've done heaps of upgrades to Snow Leopard (or Lion) of similar aged MB Pros, will no issues. Leopard is getting too old.

And for nzdoug: powerpc app support (i.e. rosetta)was dropped at 10.7
