Kindle Personal Document Files and Windows 8

........................ aren't friends.
After getting off the phone to someone in Kindle's Specialist Department, I've been told that you can't read personal files, eg books bought from Smashwords or Gutenburg (or advanced beta read copies) on a Windows 8 device.  Bummer.Tantrum
And when I asked when it would be possible to do so like I could with W7, he looked and said he didn't know.

RE: Kindle Personal Document Files and Windows 8

I didn't think you could get them either - but now I check I find I do have a 3-4 non Amazon books on Kindle for PC with Win8 and 2-3 personal documents.  These are just a very small percentage of those that are actually loaded on my Kindle.  Why them and not the others - GOK. (God Only Knows). Huh
