One book sample has giant text compared to every other book
19 January 2019 09:41 (GMT)So I downloaded a sample of "the Budayeen Cycle The Complete Series" and for some bizarre reason the text is huge. It's not from the option to zoom the text size out/in, when I use it on this book the smallest size is still significantly larger than other books'. All the options (font, margin size etc) are the same as my other books. 1337x KissAsian MangaStream
Is this a bug or is there some option I've overlooked? Also I was hoping a kind soul might be willing to download the sample and tell me if it's the same for them. This is on a kindle fire hd 8.
Exporting Highlights That Exceed Publisher Limits?
17 January 2019 17:34 (GMT)I downloaded an archived book, but when I go to export the highlights it says I have exceeded the publisher limits, and no new highlights can be exported. I did not pay for the book, which was automatically generated for the Kindle format on my iPad.
I spent two weeks reading this book for a project. How can I export these highlights?
Thanks for any help!
How to add book on Goodreads and update progress on Kindle.
17 January 2019 17:32 (GMT)Hello fellow readers. I struggle with adding sideloaded books to Goodreads (updating status). Is it even possible. I have tried editin meta data with Calibre (ISBN and ASIN) and Quality check plugin, but nothing worked for me. Is there any simple guide how to do it ?
Also, since i have already added books manually to Goodreads with "currently reading" status via browser or mobile app can I update my % progress directly via/on Kindle device ?
Would kindle help me?
16 January 2019 17:39 (GMT)I want to get a kindle because I believe it would help me be encouraged to read books because
It's convenient, I don't have to put physical bookmarks or have a hard time holding a physical book.
It has built in light with it and it won't strain my eyes compared to when using phones or tablets
It's easier for me to get the book, just download it.
I believe I'm not into reading that much because I feel uncomfortable with having to adjust the way I hold a book and also because of the bookmark. But at the same time, I'm afraid to get one because I think I'll get one just to have something new.
Appreciate any advice. Thank you!
Option to colour images/diagrams within an Ebook with Kindle?
09 January 2019 09:38 (GMT)Hi all,
I was just wondering if it's possible to colour images and/or diagrams within the Kindle app? I am asking this because my College Prof wants us to use the, "the anatomy coloring book 4th edition" for class but I'm trying to go paperless and need a work-around!!
Thus, before I buy the Kindle version I thought I might as well ask you friendly folks before I spend more of those very few dollars I have remaining (wooo I love the college life!)..
Thanks for your time and all the best! https://ovo.fyi/lorem-ipsum/ https://ovo.fyi/temp-mail/ https://ovo.fyi/10-minute-mail/
Is the Paperwhite worth for a first-time buyer?
01 January 2019 07:43 (GMT)I’ve never owned a Kindle before, but I recently started using the Kindle app on my iPhone and loved the accessibility of reading anywhere. I want to buy my first Kindle, but I can’t decide between the entry level Kindle or the new Paperwhite. https://downloader.vip/yify-yts/ https://putlocker.ooo/ https://omegle.onl/
Here’s the thing: I don’t really read around the water so being waterproof isn’t a factor; I’m also used to not being able to read in the dark because I’ve always read physical books. So...
Is the backlight that much of a game changer? Will it be worth the extra $50 if I plan to continue more normal daylight/lamp reading patterns?
Thanks is advanced for the help!

Free until 1/24 The Green Berets: Chasing the Son
20 January 2019 13:59 (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 for 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?

14 January 2019 13:25 (GMT)Eternity Base
Maverick federal employee Sammy Pintella, obsessed with uncovering the fate of her MIA father, makes a startling discovery while rifling through some inactive government files. A dozen, faded black and white photos seem to point to the existence of a secret US Military base built in the frozen wastelands of Antarctica during the height of the Cold War.
Aided by Special Forces veteran Dave Riley, she heads for Antarctica. But they aren’t alone. Spies, North Koreans, and other shadowy forces are also en route, because deep inside Eternity Base is something people will go to extreme lengths to get: a cache of nuclear warheads.
