Starting a Kindle Paperwhite

25 April 2017 12:13 (GMT)

Both my wife and myself have Kindle Paperwhites.  Mine is version 5 with a August case and hers version 7 with Forefront case.  With hers she can open the case and the screen comes on to a screen saver. She then swipes the screen and she's in to her book.  With mine I have to start it using the button on the base.  Does anyone know if this is a function of the case or the different versions of the paperwhite

Collections on two devices

18 April 2017 15:05 (GMT)

My Husband has a Kindle, I then got one and I download through his Amazon account, and I set up collections on mine, and the same collections appeared on his!  I don't know if this is normal.  He doesn't want MY collections (and books) appearing on his home page.  Is this normal or is there a way I can delete my collections from his Kindle?  I did try deleting them from his, and they disappeared from mine too!  It took me an age to reload my Kindle with all my precious books, and they reappeared on his again!  Sad

book by its cover

15 February 2017 17:18 (GMT)

Hi this is my first posting on the forums so my apologies if this is in the wrong section.

I have a question if anyone is able to help?
I like my E-books to have a specific cover, sometimes to match the tree book version I have and I've noticed that some have updated to recent release versions rather than what was originally loaded - is there a way of changing the covers back? Importing and changing to a preferred cover choice like you can within Goodreads.

Any helpful comments welcomed

kindle brick wall

Kindle brick wall
I have just purchased a paperwhite and tried many times to get a book onto my kindle
Rather than give up is there anyone I or near Gainsborough who could do this for me
I am sure once all is set up I would then be able to use it myself
I have read many bits of how to.  But alas. Still stuck and I desperation searched for a site who may offer hands on
Kind regards


Hope I entered all

Kindle Paperwhite won't charge

26 January 2017 13:56 (GMT)

My Kindle Paperwhite isn't charging. The battery level is low but not critically low and when I connect to a power source, the battery indicator light goes amber for about 10 seconds and then changes to green. I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting many times with the same result always. I also tried charging through the computer and this hasn't worked either.
I'd appreciate any advice on how to solve this issue.

But having re-located his business from Capetown to Jo'burg (with a considerable degree of urgency and haste), Jannie was presented with a problem.

He was no longer able to dig his beloved Grandfather's garden for him, and the Old Man had now injured his hip.

...... Jannie had to find a solution: fast.

FREE Today: The Kennedy Endeavor. Video Trailer

14 April 2017 12:29 (GMT)

"Today, every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate the day when this planet may no longer be habitable. Every man, woman and child lives under a nuclear Sword of Damocles, hanging by the slenderest of threads, capable of being cut at any moment by accident or miscalculation or by madness. The weapons of war must be abolished before they abolish us.” John F. Kennedy

The Kennedy Endeavor
For 13 days in October 1962 the world came the closest to nuclear Armageddon. On 22 November 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated. On the 25th of November, as Kennedy’s body lay in state at the Rotunda in Washington, Anastas Mikyoan, Khrushchev’s top adviser, presented the Premier’s condolences to Jacqueline Kennedy. She took Mikoyan’s hand in both hers and told him: “I am sure that Chairman Khrushchev and my husband could have been successful in the search for peace, and they were really striving for that. Now the Chairman must continue the agreed upon endeavor and bring it to completion.”

On 12 October 1964, a Washington socialite named Mary Meyer was shot in the back of the head and through the heart at point-blank range. She had been married to a high-ranking CIA agent. More importantly, she had been carrying on an affair with President John F. Kennedy and was one of his most trusted friends, at his side through the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

On 13 October 1964, the day after Mary Meyer’s murder, the Soviet Politburo forced Nikita Khrushchev to resign from power and put him under house arrest.

Today, Paul Ducharme and Evie Tolliver unveil a Fail Safe type scenario brokered by President Kennedy and Premier Khrushchev and race against time before the archaic Sword of Damocles initiates World War III.
