04 February 2018 20:11 (GMT)Hi I managed to get the wi-fi connected thanks to customer services , but it was re-registered to my account and not my wife's, i am trying to re register but we have forgotten her password, is there a way I can reset without losing all her books etc ???
Probably a stupid question. ....
28 January 2018 07:58 (GMT)My old trusty Kindle is showing signs of old age (next page button sticks, battery life falling etc). I cannot complain as it has been going for years, but if I upgraded to a Paperwhite how does it work with all the books I have downloaded? ?
I have many downloaded that I use for reference, and could not go through the process of downloading again...... or is it somehow linked to the log on details? ?
Any assistance from people who have done this before would be greatly appreciated.
As I said at the start, probably a stupid question. .........

Is there any way to fix a tiny scratch on the screen?
23 December 2017 15:09 (GMT)I have unfortunately somehow managed to get the tiniest scratch in the top of my Paperwhite screen. It's not too distracting but I'm concerned it may spread over time. Any ideas on fixes or will I just eventually have to replace the whole screen? Thanks gang & Merry Christmas
Kindle – A real pain in the arms too?! A few more e-reader testers required
06 December 2017 15:04 (GMT)I am on a quest to find some crash test kindle users. As I mentioned in The Lounge It came to me early in my tablet days that they weren’t actually so comfortable. Hard fold up stands just too difficult to get in the right position, wee pillow types even trickier when moving it and the tablet about.
So, I came up with and patented what is now known as tabpillö. Literally a tablet soft stand, tabpillö securely holds the tablet, allowing multiple angles of repositioning and greater comfort. Simply slide your eReader/tablet into tabpillö's window pocket and your eReader is secure. If you’re anything like me, cuddling up with your eReader in bed, or on the sofa for half hour or so, means a strain. Slipping that cumbersome literary gem into your tabpillö and for me the “pain in the arms” feeling literally disappear.
We’ve had some great feedback to date but I’m hoping to get in contact with 3 or 4 Kindle/eReader/7-8” tablet lovers to get their perspective on how and where they use their device, how long they spend on it and how they feel when using it. We’d also love feedback on what difference the tabpillo makes to their experience. We’re then aiming to move into a broader research phase with a reasonable number of participants to gauge the value and shortcomings of our beloved eReaders.
If you wish to do a little e-reading and would like to be one of our test drivers for tabpillö, take a look at our website, pick your colour and then let me know you’re interested and we’ll get you started. We’re only a small team so first in, first served if you know what I mean.
Kindle on iPad
30 November 2017 13:47 (GMT)I updated my Kindle app two or three weeks ago, with the result that now I can't get from Collections to Library.
There is an icon on the screen that is labelled "library" but it doesn't work no matter how many times I tap it.
Anyone experiencing the same problem and maybe with a solution?

Permanently free: Eyes of the Hammer (Green Berets) video trailer
15 March 2018 14:55 (GMT)The first book in the bestselling Green Beret series is free on all platforms.
Eyes of the Hammer
Eyes of the Hammer by NY Times Bestselling Author, former Green Beret and West Point Graduate, Bob Mayer, is “Exciting and authentic! Author Mayer, a Green Beret himself, gave me a vivid look at the world of the Army’s Special Forces. His portrayal of Green Beret operations and techniques takes you deep into the world of Special Operations.” W.E.B. Griffin.
A US Special Forces team lead by Green Beret Dave Riley is on a top secret mission to take down drug traffickers in Colombia, but while doing so they are faced with betrayal by their own government.
The team is carrying sterilized weapons and unmarked uniforms and the operation is “off the books.”
Of course, nothing is as it seems, especially once the CIA gets involved. Throw in an Israeli mercenary and betrayal, Dave Riley and his team soon find themselves wondering what the real mission is and will they become collateral damage from all the double-dealing going on back in Washington.
Eyes of the Hammer is the first book in the bestselling Green Beret Series written by a man who has “been there, done that.”

FREE 3/11 only. "Spellbinding!" Terry Brooks
11 March 2018 14:40 (GMT)“Spell-binding! Will keep you on the edge of your seat. Call it techno-thriller, call it science fiction, call it just terrific story-telling.” Terry Brooks, #1 NY Times Bestselling author of the Shannara series and Star Wars Phantom Menace
In 1945, Navy Training Flight 19 disappears in the Bermuda Triangle.
In 1963, the USS Thresher, a nuclear submarine, is lost under unusual circumstances, along with a SR-71 spy plane that crashes near the legendary city of Angkor Kol Ker in Cambodia at the exact same time. Both are part of a secret government investigation into mysterious gates opening on the planet's surface. Green Beret Eric Dane leads a team of operatives to recover the black box and encounters a strange fog. His entire team disappears, attacked by strange creatures out of the fog. Only Dane survives to return.
Present day: Another plane goes down and no one should have survived—but they did. It’s in the same area Dane lost his team. He’s called back. To find out who is the darkness behind these gates to our planet. What does this Shadow force want? It is a threat that will take on the world’s greatest military forces and defeat them.

FREE 3/3 to 3/6 The Next Level Of Warfare Will Be The Mind
03 March 2018 13:27 (GMT)Psychic Warrior
Library Journal: “A heart-pounding thriller about the emergence of a deadly avatar. The panorama of modern warfare and the details of hand-to-hand combat encounters add excitement. Inventive, entertaining, and realistic adventure. Highly recommended.”
Sergeant Major Jimmy Dalton and a small team of US Green Berets who were originally trained in the classified Trojan Warrior program are thrust into the Psychic Warrior program. The team must battle a Russian avatar on the virtual plane and then take their own avatars into the real world. Their mission seems simple. Stop Chyort. If they fail? World War III.
Men Who Stare At Goats was based on a real program, Trojan Warrior, which the author was part of. This book takes that to the next level.
The Russians sink the submarine USS Thresher in 1963 using their classified psychic project, but something goes awry and all are killed. Except one scientist who plans to take the project to a higher level. Decades later, the Russians unleash Chyort, also known as the ‘Devil’. Chyort is a cyborg that can project into the virtual world with almost limitless power and reassemble his avatar anywhere in real world to wreak havoc. When the Russian mafia steals 20 nuclear warheads to auction them to the highest bidder, Chyort implements his own plan of revenge.
Psychic Warrior takes warfare into the virtual plane through avatars and then reinserts the covert operatives into the real world. The results can be devastating. Mayer uses his real Military experience in the then-classified Special Forces Trojan Warrior program and writes a novel about the new frontier of warfare: the mind.
This is the future of Special Operations Warfare.[/b]
