Not all collections transferring to new Paperwhite

01 May 2019 17:19 (GMT)

I recently got the latest PW, and am suitably impressed. When I registered it, it did what it should do and all my collections appeared on it when I touch the "All" option...

Well, nearly all - but not quite. I have about 60-odd collections on my Amazon account, but about five of them haven't transferred to my PW. Any advice, short of de-registering and then re-registering the thing (which may or may not work anyway...)?

Thanks

My Paperwhite refuses to sync to the last page read

29 April 2019 17:51 (GMT)

Hi. I read my books on my phone with the Kindle Android app and on my third generation Paperwhite. These last couple of weeks my Paperwhite refuses to sync to the last page read. Instead it gives me this error:
"Unable to retrieve the furthest location read. If this is the first time you have opened this book, your device will update your location when you close the book or your device goes to sleep."
My phone doesn't give any error, but as I'm unable to sync my progress from my Kindle to the cloud, I can't really test whether the app works.
The weird thing is that syncing bookmarks works fine. I know I can use this as a workaround, but it's hardly ideal.  Lorem Ipsum Temp Mail 10 Minute Mail

Another workaround is to delete the book and redownload it on my Kindle. This let's me get the current progress, but only that time.

Does Kindle allow sorting by series order or release year yet?

29 April 2019 17:42 (GMT)

I'm getting a new Kindle tomorrow (the new Paperwhite) and am pretty excited! My old kindle is a Kindle 3 (Kindle Keyboard from 2010) and it has served me well. I always I disliked the fact that I couldn't sort by series, though, line I could ass books in a series to a collection, but then they would just sort alphabetically.

Do the newer kindles have this functionality? Also, somewhat related, so they allow sub-xollections? Or are those sort of features pretty much the same as they were in the older kindles?
Thanks for any input!

Wifi connection timeout - and timein again

21 February 2019 14:37 (GMT)

This was a problem until about halfway through this message, when it spontaneously fixed itself. It's now just for information. 

My 5th generation Paperwhite suddenly wouldn't connect after several years of flawless operation. I tried restarting it and signing on to the network, but no luck. I know it wasn't the wifi, because I'm using the UK-wide Eduroam network at my university, and all other Internet applications were working fine, as was my mobile phone logged onto that network. Now, about an hour later, and partway through what was this message, it's suddenly spontaneously reconnected, and all the books, samples and articles I'd sent  in the meantime have appeared. 

Just for general information - is there any explanation for these once-in-a-blue-moon glitches?

Pairing with bluetooth headphones

08 December 2018 10:55 (GMT)

Hello there, I am very happy to be a new member of the community!
I have received the new Kindle Paperwhite for my birthday last month, and I finally managed to have my audible collection on it. However I can't pair my brand new Sony WH-1000XM3 with it, as the list of available connected bluetooth devices shows nothing. I have already tried to switch the Kindle on and off - even resetted it to factory settings. Both kindle and headphones firmware are up to date.
I would appreciate your help on that issue!
Best regards,
Geneviève

e-book in a second language

26 November 2018 11:12 (GMT)

I have published a Kindle book (in English language) 'Tales from the Arctic' on Amazon, and although I am aware that there are 'apps' available for some e-book readers' devices that can translate the text to their respective language, Kindle does not support text in cyrillic, so would it be bending the rules if I produced the book as a stand-alone e-book?

FREE 143 Years Ago tomorrow-- Little Big Horn--How did it happen?

24 June 2019 12:55 (GMT)

Stuff Doesn't Just Happen: The Gift of Failure
This book is about catastrophes and how to avoid them, mitigate their effects and learn from them as seen from the perspective of the Masters of Chaos: United States Army Special Forces (Green Berets). Taking the attitude shit happens is negative and is fatal. In this book we learn why propane has a smell; how crash positions in airplanes were refined; how economic bubbles happen over and over; how failures in leadership lead to murder, cannibalism and massacre; and much more.

Titanic: Systematic Failure
Kegworth Plane Crash: The Danger of Deferring to Authority and Experts
Little Big Horn: Leadership Failure
New London Schoolhouse Explosion: Lack of Focus
The Donner Party: Social Disintegration
From Tulips to the Housing Bubble: Greed Overwhelms Reality
Apollo 13: Success Snatched from the Jaws of Catastrophe

The bottom line is we can predict and prevent most catastrophes because every one has at least one man made factor, of the 7 cascade events, involved. In other words, we have control over whether shit happens. But it means changing a complacent mindset, getting rid of delusional thinking, and viewing the world around us in a Green Beret way.

Because sh!t doesn’t just happen.

FREE 6/17 to 6/19 CU OUT (The Green Berets)

17 June 2019 12:27 (GMT)

CUT OUT (The Green Berets)
Green Beret Dave Riley returns in this taut thriller set in the shadowy world of the federal witness protection program. Riley and his friend, police detective Donna Giannini, are asked to protect a friend whose life is in danger, and find themselves ensnared in the same web: Professional hit-men are stalking them, and the killers seem to know their every move. 

Bodies disappear; phones are tapped; computer programs are compromised. Who is behind it? Who can they trust? And how can they escape when they don't know who the enemy is?

It all leads from Chicago to an explosive climax high in the Smoky Mountains.

Kirkus Reviews. “Sinewy writing enhances this already potent action fix. An adrenaline cocktail from start to finish.” 

Southern Book Trade. ““Clancy, Coonts and Brown might have the market cornered when it comes to hardware, but Mayer knows what all Infantry types will tell you: it’s the soldier who makes all the difference. Fans of military action will eat this one up. Bob Mayer just keeps getting better and better.”
