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!
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
27 January 2017 17:58 (GMT)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
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.

His Grandfather's Garden
Jannie Jaacobs was in the second-hand car business. Or, to be more specific, Jannie was in the business of getting cars started. (Even if the keys were not always available.)
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.
