Kindle

My Son-in-Law gave me his Kindle and it's all been transferred to my name, wireless set up,etc. Although it was set up for English the Kindle store shows up in Italian so I want to download books from the Amazon site on the computer. Whilst I was looking at it my daughter downloaded a book for me but as I wasn't watching so didn't see how she did it. She has now gone to the UK. I tried downloading a free book but it wouldn't do it. I've been to the help screen and that didn't seem to be of much use.

Could some kind person give me step-by-step instructions on how to do it. I would appreciate any help.

Sorry, can't help you as I don't have a Kindle - got a Sony eReader and it's different for downloading.

Have you tried Googling for advice?
Try "downloading from amazon to KIndle"
and some useful websites come up.

Kindle's are supposed to be relatively easy to manage from Amazon, so good luck!

Ring the Kindle people. They are really helpful & will talk you through it.

I do a 1-click ordering on mine, but without yours in front of me it is hard to see what you have set up....

Kindle help

Thank you for your responses. I managed to download a book from the Kindle itself although I think it was more by good luck than good judgement!

I will contact the helpline at Kindle and see what they can do.

Thanks once again,

Kindle downloading

I don't remember having any problems. I download to my computer from Amazon and then WiFi to my netbook as I don't have a Kindle.
Just go to the Amazon site. Choose your book, click on the Kindle version and it should go seamlessly. It only take a few moments

Downloading kindle

Welsh Cookie. This is my first kindle so still trying to get used to it. I tried to download a free book from Amazon.com but nothing happened. Everything was OK here, wireless, kindle fully charged, etc. I then tried the Amazon.co.uk only to be told that is for UK residents only and I should try Amazon.it. This I did but there aren't that many English books on that site apart from some classics and learning English. I thought I would be able to download from any of the Amazon sites. I want to download a couple of free books first before I start buying them to get it set up for my preferences.

I've got a young friend on the job now who's offered to help me out.

Kindle is country specific I believe. You can only download books from the amazon of your country of residence/credit card. All to do with copyright stuff.

Ah, now I see the problem.

I bought my Kindle in Ireland, where I'm usually resident. I had to download books from the Amazon.com site, not co.uk - however, I now spend half my time in the UK, and managed to switch to downloading from co.uk. If you go into your account at Amazon, and then select 'Manage My Kindle' - you should see - on the left hand side near the bottom - 'Country Settings' - I think that's where you tell them where you are.

Thanks for that DG, I will try it. I went onto the Amazon.it site and it said if you are registered with Amazon.co.uk or the .com site you can access the site using the .it site. It did not, however, say you could buy anything!

I amazed myself recently & managed to synch my Kindle to both my Windows phone & now also my iPad! I have no idea how I managed it, but having it on the iPad too has been brilliant on holiday when trying to read on the balcony in the dark (when trying to keep cool)! Can't say that I have read anything on the phone however - that really does seem too daft for words, but if I ever ran out of kindle or iPad charge at a particularly gripping bit of Game of Thrones, I might have to suffer a 3" screen!

Kindle/iPad

I've only just picked up on this topic. I've recently bought an iPad and getting to know it etc. Does it mean I don't have to buy a Kindle to read books and can get them downloaded via my iPad to read them on it? If so, that would be great.

Dottie, you're way ahead of me in the technology stakes, well done!!

I've got to grips with my Kindle now help with and I'm ordering books. My son came out for a few days to help with the grape harvest (but that's another story) and he decided to by me an Amazon book token using his UK Amazon account. He set it all up and I tried to buy a book but the Kindle wasn't having any of it. He spoke to Amazon and was told for it to work I'd have to have an Amazon.co.uk account and use it from there. It all seems very strange to me when a he'd also ordered a slow cooker from his Amazon.co.uk and that was delivered safe and sound.

Re apps, I've been told to be careful with free apps because although they are free you could end up paying for upgrades.
