Good afternoon,
I'm not sure if i'm posting in the right section. 
My soon to be Ex wife has always used my Amazon account to purchase books for her Kindle E reader, so i have all of her content.
As we have now split, is there a way to transfer all of her books to her new Amazon account?
Thank you.........Trevor

Lending from a local Library

13 February 2020 13:11 (GMT)

[font="PT Sans Narrow", sans-serif]Hi all, I am a relatively new user to the kindle paperwhite, and really enjoying it. But I'm hoping to get some help from fellow users. I would like to get library books on my kindle from my local library, and they suggested, Borrowbox, and Overdrive, I have found that borrowbox can't be downloaded on my kindle, and  my library isn't on overdrive, and I can't get overdrive on my kindle, so I am at a loss. And wondered if anyone had found a way of doing this. [/font]

[font="PT Sans Narrow", sans-serif]Any help is appreciated [/font]

Question: Reading PDFs on Kindle Fire!

24 December 2019 08:08 (GMT)

Hello Friends,
Just got a Kindle Fire from a bookstore for about $20. Most of my reading material come in the form of PDFs. I've manged to load them into my Kindle and have been reading them via the Docs App, but I'm starting to get irritated since I can't bookmark pages within http://tradevenue.se/ it.
 Is there a way for me to bookmark my PDFs on my Kindle? Do I have to convert my files or something?
Sorry, it seems like questions regarding PDFs get posted a lot. I just wanna bookmark stuff so I can jump to them on a later date.

Where do you guys get your ebooks?

20 December 2019 12:08 (GMT)

Hello everyone,,
you can use irc chat, you need a software to connect to it like mirc, then create account and connect to irc highway then enter to the channel called ebooks and there you can search for the book you want
REFERENCE: [color=var(--newCommunityTheme-linkText)]https://www.reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/2oftbu/guide_the_idiot_proof_guide_to_downloading_ebooks/[/color]

"avxhm dot se" is a site you can get books from, the links provided on this site to download the book, usually send you to icerbox or uploaded or other sharing sites, these sites wont allow a download without a premium account, but there is a way arround this, lets say the link provided is icerbox, you just need to copy the icerbox link provided to a 3rd party site which let you download the file for free, just google search "icerbox leeches" or "icerbox premium link generator", one of the links that works for icerbox is: "alemdarleech dot com", register a free account and there you go, tested it work the only downside to these 3rd party sites is that you must go through like dozen of advertisment befor the real download link appear
downloading from archive is a legal way like borrowing a book from public library, it have all sort of books, you just need adobe digital edition software and a free account sign up, after you downloaded the book you cannot open it in another software other than digital edition, because it is copyrighted by drm, just use a software to remove drm and there you go

Are Audiobooks and reading an equal experience?

16 December 2019 07:42 (GMT)

Hello everyone,,
I used to be an avid reader and it was something I genuinely loved to do. About 2 years or so ago I found myself not having enough time to read and after another few months I found I had completely stopped reading and it was something that bothered me and I tried multiple times to get back on the horse and jump into another book but again I seemed to never be able to find time to read and most attempts failed 5 or 6 chapters in https://homestuffpro.com.
Fast forward to about 4 months ago I started working in a factory doing 3-4 12 hour shifts a week and I started getting into Audiobooks and I have been absolutely thrown back into my love of books. For me personally it is an equal experience to actually reading and its grown on me so much, I actually look forward to work so I can listen to this series I've started and its really captured my imagination.
Id love to know what the communities opinion is on Audiobooks vs Reading and do you guys rate them as an equal experience or do Audiobooks miss anything or vica versa.

eBooks in Arabic

03 November 2019 21:10 (GMT)

(My apology if this is the wrong forum, I am a beginner.) There are many eBooks for learners of Arabic, but I have so  far found only 1 that I am able to read.: 'Conversational Arabic Dialogues' (Touri). It is the only such book that I have found in which the Arabic text is rendered in a typeface (just) large enough to enable me to read it.  In every other such book that I have found, the English typeface is huge --  quite unnecessarily so --- and the Arabic typeface is tiny.  Arabic script is full of tiny dots and pronunciation-marks that must be made visible if the words are to be understood. How can I get this message to the producers of these books ?.  .

A World-Wide Pandemic? FREE through 31 May

29 May 2020 12:49 (GMT)

Z: Final Countdown
How do you solve the problem of scarce resources and over-population with one devastating act?

Publishers Weekly: “The action is crisp with a great job of establishing a sense of reality—and real danger—by mixing current fears about killer diseases with a clear-eyed view of the Army.”

Assigned to escort SNN’s ace reporter Conner Young, who’s accompanying a US Army Special Forces A-team as part of the UN’s peacekeeping mission in Angola, former Green Beret Dave Riley finds himself undertaking his most dangerous and thrilling mission yet.

In the war-torn jungles of Africa, the team becomes infected with a terrible disease known as ‘Z’, which kills within days and is now on the verge of an uncontrollable outbreak.

The shocking truth about the virus points to a mysterious diamond cartel based on the Namibian coast. In a desperate race against time, Riley and the assault team must secure the only antidote before it is destroyed.

Bookpage: “Take an original look at a simmering world hot spot, and generates a lot of suspense along the way. A winner on all points.”

Library Journal: “A heart-pounding thriller about the emergence of a deadly ebola-like virus. The panorama of modern warfare and the details of hand-to-hand combat encounters add excitement. Inventive, entertaining, and realistic adventure. Highly recommended.”

Kirkus: “A ripping good biotech/military thriller that plausibly depicts the high costs of combating unseen enemies. An absorbing and well-written series.

FREE today only: Walk on the Wild Side (The Green Berets)

28 May 2020 14:20 (GMT)

WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
A BLOOD DEBT MUST BE PAID WITH BLOOD

This is the message pinned to Will Kane’s door with a Bowie knife. And it doesn’t take long before the first of the Hard Flint Brothers arrives to make good on the threat.

Kane barely escapes with his life, but things go downhill from there, with five more Brothers having sworn to take his life in vengeance for his killing of one of their own.

Then there are the women in his life: 

Caitlyn, a mysterious woman who has several identities and knows more about Kane than she should. Who does she work for? What does she really want from him?

Sofia Cappucci, daughter of a mob family boss who has higher aspirations and wants Kane’s help in achieving them, whether he’s willing or not. She has him negotiating with Roy Cohn, infamous criminal lawyer.

Toni Marcelle, the sister of his West Point room-mate and Ranger Buddy. She has her own set of problems.

But lurking behind it all, Kane is beginning to feel the presence of something bigger, an organization more secret than the CIA or FBI. One that has ties stretching back to World War II and involves the highest levels of power and seems particularly interested in him.

A Modern Day Dirty Dozen: Section Eight

21 May 2020 13:06 (GMT)

Section Eight (Shadow Warriors)
A present day Dirty Dozen.

Captain Jim Vaughn is an officer in disgrace. Commanding a Special Forces mission to rescue hostages in the Philippines, Vaughn's team is destroyed, and when the smoke clears, he is made the scapegoat. Forced into the shadows by the scandal, Vaughn is offered a chance for redemption when he is approached by an enigmatic government agent working for The Organization, looking for a few desperate men.

The Organization pulled strings long before the founding of the United States. It dates back to the destruction of the Knights Templar and even further in history. As secrets from the Golden Lilly Operation and the infamous Unit 731 from World War II become exposed, Vaughn has to wonder who the real enemy is.

Section Eight are the men and women called upon by The Organization to do the impossible. They are the soldiers who have nothing to lose. They make up a top-secret unit tasked with suicide missions. 

Vaughn is given a group of men and women outside of the regular chain of command. These are men and women who have crossed the line one too many times. Drug users. Felons. The terminally ill. These are the soldiers that Vaughn must trust with his life. Even with a traitor in their ranks. 

A team of such unique properties is the perfect tool to use against America's enemies...and possibly America itself.

CUT OUT, free though 4/12

10 April 2020 14:17 (GMT)

CUT OUT
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.”
