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?

London, midsummer night. Jane and Bill meet the mysterious Lilah in a bar. She entrances the couple with half-true, mixed up tales about her life. At closing time, Jane makes an impulsive decision to invite Lilah back to their home. But Jane has made a catastrophic error of judgement, for Lilah is a skilled and ruthless predator, the likes of which few encounter in a lifetime. Isolated and cursed, Jane and Bill are forced to fight for each other, and, in doing so, discover their covert desires.
Part psychological thriller, part contemporary magical realism, The Tryst revisits the tale of Adam s first wife, Lilith, to examine the secrets of an everyday marriage.

FREE 2/12 to 2/14 Valentines Day (Time Patrol)
12 February 2018 14:16 (GMT)Valentines Day (Time Patrol)
“The point in history at which we stand is full of promise and danger. The world will either move forward toward unity and widely shared prosperity—or it will move apart.” President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Six Time Patrol Agents are sent to the same day, 14 February, in six different years to keep our history, and our timeline, from being destroyed.
Ivar: 1929. Gunmen massacre seven people in the infamous St. Valentines Day Massacre. Al Capone is consolidating his grip on the Outfit in Chicago. But what if it turns out very differently?
Eagle: 1945. President Roosevelt, heading home from the Yalta Conference, stops on the Great Bitter Lake to meet King Idn Saud of Saudi Arabia to discuss a relatively new topic: Arab oil. And a Jewish homeland.
Roland: 1779. Captain Cook, famed explorer of the Pacific, meets his fate in Hawaii.
Scout: 278. Saint Valentine is beheaded near the Milvian Bridge.
Doc: 1945. The Dresden Firebombing. Kurt Vonnegut is in a slaughterhouse as the first bombers appear overheard.
Moms: 1946. The ENIAC computer, programmed by six women, is unveiled to the public. The press thinks the women are simply models.
The mission, as always for the Time Patrol, seems straight-forward: keep history intact. No matter the cost.
Bottle and Glass - free today and tomorrow only
08 February 2018 19:03 (GMT)Bottle and Glass e-book is free for download from Amazon, today and tomorrow only.
"Bottle and Glass is a highly original adventure story, set during the war of 1812, and framed using real taverns that once existed within the city of Kingston, Ontario. A fascinating study of escape, and a powerful history of 19th century frontier life; Bottle and Glass is a stunning achievement."
Helen Humphreys – award‐winning novelist and poet laureate of Kingston, Ontario, author of seven novels including ‘Afterimage’, ’ Coventry’, and ‘The Evening Chorus’, nominated for the 2015 Governor General’s Award.
Bottle and Glass is a story of survival and escape told from the barstools of two dozen boisterous Kingston taverns at the close of the War of 1812. Jeremy Castor and his cousin Merit Davey are snatched up by the Royal Navy in the summer of 1813. A year later they arrive in Kingston, a town tense with the fear and deprivation of war. Their first riotous night ashore is spent at the Violin, Bottle, and Glass. Later that evening, they stumble upon a dead man - their lives are changed forever.
