Kindle Help

by Greg on January 19, 2009

I’m sure that most of the people that are here have bought a Kindleor have one ordered and on the way. I’m also sure that most of you love your Kindles like I do. But every once in a while we may encounter a problem with the Kindle or are just not sure how to do something that we would like with it. Here’s some resources that can help you troubleshoot problems and some tips and tricks to make using your Kindle easier.

Amazon Kindle Support – this is support right from Amazon themselves. Some of the things that you can find here are the Kindle Quick Start Guideand Kindle Tips And Troubleshooting

Unofficial Kindle Fan Guide – This is a 25 page PDF file that has a lot of really great info. There are some FAQ’s, some info on getting started once your Kindle arrives, and also info on customizing your Kindle plus much more.

Kindle Forums – These are the forums over at Amazon. There is a lot of good, useful info here. Sometimes you need to scroll down a bit but I’m sure you can find something here that will be useful to you.

The Complete User’s Guide to the Amazing Amazon Kindle – this guide is also available in paperback for those that want to learn more about the Kindle before buying one. It’s also helpful for those who want a hard copy to look at when using their Kindle.

If you have any sites that you’d like to add to this list, please add a comment below.

The zone you choose to submit a ticket in penis enlargement, and with the increasing slime covering the floor, don’t stand in it. It is accessible to go agriculture in situations as able-bodied in which you can also get them from drops right?

I don’t have a Kindle .. have been reading on PC. Could someone tell me if the titles I have saved to the PC Library will transfer over to a Kindle Library (I still haven’t decided which Kindle would be best for me) ??

I would like to also know how to transfer all my books from Kindle to my Fire….My husband wants my first Kindle.

I have two Kindle’s my recent is the Fire, my questions are:
How do i turn it off so I’m not charging it everday, also how do I delete a book when i have finished reading it. It seems I didn;t get any instruction with my Fire. I love them both. Would never go back to regular books, also love the free books that you offer. Thank you

How do I get back to the beginning of a book I started without having to backpage?

You won’t be able to download books from Amazon but there are plenty of places you can go to download free books which you should be able to read on your Kindle no matter where you’re at. Go here:

Great site!

I just gave my wife a Kindle for her birthday, but it’s not working where we live (Puerto Rico), because of geographical restrictions; any suggestions.

Visitors here might want to check out my weekly audio podcast, The Kindle Chronicles. Search for “kindle” in the podcasts section of the iTunes Store, or you can listen at the show notes page, . Each Friday I interview someone with something informative to say about the Kindle, and I have news, tech tips, a Kindle quote, and listener comments. Good luck with the Warehouse!
