Slow download

Why does it take several days for my new purchases to download to my Kindle. 2 days ago I bought (1 click only!!) a couple of books via Amazon. My payment was made immediately, but so far I haven't received the books.

I have bought quite a few books in the past, and have sometimes had to wait several days

Our computer is on all day and every day and the Kindle is switched on on a shelf above it.

RE: Slow download

I've never had to wait longer than a minute for a book to download, even when I've been on hols in Tenerife using 3G. You DO have wireless turned on on your Kindle? (Sorry if that's an "insulting your intelligence" question! Wink )

RE: Slow download

When you one clicked - was it from your kindle or from amazon on your computer?
If it was from your computer, was your kindle selected as the "go to" machine?
Have you checked they are not in your archives?
Have you had a look on manage my kindle on amazon to see if they are pending?

I don't know what generation kindle you have but if you go to 'menu' and 'sync' it should update all new items.

RE: Slow download

I have never taken more than a minute for books to download either. You say your Kindle is switched on all day and every day, but does it not go to sleep if you don't use it? I know mine does.
