Make Your Favorite Book Available On Kindle

by Greg on April 13, 2009

Although Amazon has a lot of books available on Kindle and there’s also over a million more available for your Kindle outside of Amazon, you’re probably like me and have a few books that you would love to have available for the Kindle that currently are not.

There is a way to make your favorite books available for download to your Kindle. If you go to Amazon and do a search for your book, there is a small box underneath the picture of the books cover. Inside that box, there’s a link that says “I’d like to read this book on Kindle” or “Start reading ‘Book Title’ on your Kindle in under a minute”. If your book says “I’d like to read this book on Kindle” then it’s not available right now on Kindle so click on that link. After you click on the link it will bring up a new page that says “Thank you for requesting ‘Book Title’ by ‘Author’ in Kindle Edition. Our goal is to make every title available for Kindle. We will pass your specific request on to the publisher.” This does not guarantee that the book will be available on Kindle, but if enough people click on the link, the chances are better that it will become available.

Here’s an example of a book that’s not available yet for Kindle that I would like to see available: Swan Song (By the way, please click on the link to help make it available. Thanks!) Update:  Swan Song is now available on Kindle. Thanks to all those who clicked on the link!

If you’d like some help getting your favorites to be available for Kindle add a comment to this post with a link to your book title. Please also click on other peoples links to help make their books available too. The more people that click on these links, the better chance we have to get our books. You can also Twitter, Digg and do whatever else you can to help get more traffic to these links. Please Digg this post here: Make Your Favorite Book Available On Kindle or just click on the Digg icon below (the first icon).

Here’s a book that I’d like to have available. http://www.amazon.com/One-Here-Gets-Out-Alive/dp/0446697338/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1239649485&sr=1-1

I click the “I’d like to read this book on Kindle” link often. And, I’ve been pleased to see that some of these books subsequently became available for the Kindle. I just wish that Amazon would record my account info when I click the link & then follow up with me via e-mail to let me know the book is available.

Swan Song looks cool! Personally, I want Robert Jordans Wheel of Time published on Kindle.

There’s the author store. Right now they have some first chapters available on Kindle as short stories, but I want the whole books!

This is one of the two I’ve been waiting for. Christine – I clicked on yours & Greg – I clicked on yours as well. This is also a great way to find interesting books.

I would like to see 3 Carla Cassidy books added for the Kindle… Last Gasp, The perfect family & Promise him anything. I would apreciate anyone that will request these for me.

I’ve been reading ebooks on my laptop and pda for years. The format I chose and have been happy with is Mobipocket, a French company. I have about 10 or 12 books in my Mobipocket library and it would be nice to put them on my Kindle 2.

I understand the Amazon format is a version of the Mobipocket format. Telling me how to get my Mobipocket books on the Kindle would have been more helpful.

Swan Song is now available on Kindle so I guess enough people clicked on the link so I thank everyone that did. BTW, it’s a great book.

I would love to be able to read Follow the River by James Alexander Thom on the Kindle. It’s a much older book, but one I love to revisit every few years. Please help me get it on the Kindle!

You know, if the publishers get wind of this kind of ballot-box stuffing–and even if they don’t, if the Kindle sales are significantly lower than the number of requests–they’ll probably start ignoring all requests, so one should probably ask for only ones he’d actually want to see on Kindle, so as not to ruin it for the rest of the people in the end. Just sayin’….

I agree that getting a follow-up notice that one you requested is now available would be in everyone’s best interest.

Would love this on Kindle with tabs for finding passages smoothly.

Thank you,

Thank you.
