Kindle Reader Comfort
15 July 2018 23:17 (GMT)It's been a while since we talked tabpillö. With numerous KUF test pilots sharing their positive thoughts, just thought I'd let you know that you can get tablet comfort via amazon at hugely discounted price, a mere 5.95 for a short while only.
Words from one test pilot, Campbell, "Everyone who has tried out the tabpillö loved it". Also, Gilly was keen to get a little comfort.... while Judith tabpillo, waiting for remote?!
Any how, I hope you get to enjoy more kindle comfort...
27 June 2018 11:02 (GMT)Is it possible to transfer books from my KIndle Paperwhite to my i-Pad and if so how? I want to do this occasionally to avoid carrying two devices and charging gear when travelling.
Books not displayed
25 May 2018 14:38 (GMT)I have a Kindle Paperwhite and until recently it has behaved perfectly. I also have a large library on .mobi books. Normally when I drag and drop the books into the documents folder on the Kindle they open and are readable as normal. Recently, however, whilst Windows Explorer shows that the book is on my Kindle it does not display on the library main screen on the Kindle and is consequently not accessible on the Kindle. Does anybody know what is happening and how do I cure it?
Can't Find My Book
13 May 2018 20:48 (GMT)Hi
I bought a paperwhite some months ago but I always have problems finding books when I've bought them. I have just bought a book using the kindle (so it's nothing to do with my wifi) and it is supposed to have been delivered to my kindle. I certainly have a reference to it on the home page but that is all and that is only text - no picture as I would expect. So where can I find the book - what happens to it when you've bought it and it is supposed to have been delivered. I have done a search on my kindle and although the book appears it looks very much as if it is greyed out and nothing happens when I try to open or download it I should add that it doesn't matter what book it is it just seems to disappear into the ether until it decides to make an appearance. Can anyone help please?
I should add that I have just loaded Kindle for PC and I've downloaded the book without problems but as far as I can make out it still hasn't reached the Kindle!!!
08 April 2018 17:56 (GMT)So sad. My old Kindle faded away and then died. Lovely little blue jacket too.
Perhaps I should have ceremonial farewell for it ...
Creating a one stop depositary for all Kindle and E Book files such as PDFs
29 March 2018 19:37 (GMT)I know how to find "My Kindle and I would have liked to know if I could also add PDF relating to E Books on the same page if that's what its referred as. I attempted to post a question using the following but every one rejected my attempt. I apologise if this is the wrong part of the forum to post this question but I'm lost.

FREE 8-9 July. Chasing the Son (Green Berets)
08 July 2018 14:42 (GMT)Chasing the Son (Green Berets)
Place, time and family. Three things that shape individuals. Sometimes with love. Other times with violence.
Former covert operative, Horace Chase, has just discovered he has a son; a son who fled the Military Institute of South Carolina a year and a half ago after being accused of murder. The victim is the grandson of the most powerful woman in Charleston, South Carolina, who has sworn vengeance.
Chase teams up with another former covert operative, Dave Riley, and one of Riley’s old CIA friends, Kate Westland, to find his son and uncover the truth. Barely into their investigation they become caught up in a land development deal for Daufuskie Island worth hundreds of millions.
Chase and Riley’s covert background has taught them many things, but the most valuable has been that nothing is ever as it appears as an old nemesis rears her head, hell bent on revenge against them both along with a good helping of greed.
And in the shadows hovers THE CELLAR, the agency that polices the world of covert operations.
One by one, the competitors of the land deal are being killed and the threat to Chase’s son grows. And nothing, not the present, not the past, and no one, are as they appear to be.
Who will be left standing?
