I brought a Kindle last autumn. So far I have only loaded a few books onto it. However my partner has shattered the screen. Is there any way I can pull the books off - two are particularly important - so that I can put them on another device. The price I have been quoted suggests buying another eReader is more sensible.

    If you bought these books from Amazon, they are accessible to you from whichever device you use; i.e. you can download Kindle for PC and download them from there. I don't own a Kindle, so this is just speculation: if you have sideloaded them, you can connect it to your PC with an USB cable and retrieve them, it should be seen as a removable drive (like an USB pendrive); my Kobo works like that, you can give it a try.

You can just connect it to PC and move files from document folder as backup. Later you can restore them to new device. Anyways you books bought from amazon will be available on cloud

  • Have backed up. A local phone/tablet repairer is having a look at the Kindle on a no fix - no fee basis
