I have a Kindle Paperwhite synced to my Amazon account.

I often go to amazon.com and click 'Download sample' on a book. When I next go to my Kindle, the sample thumbnail is visible, but when I click on it, I have to wait for the sample to fully download before I can read it.

Sometimes this is really inconvenient (if I'm in a place with no wifi so can't read the sample), and it's always slow. It would be much better if the full sample synced at the same time as the thumbnail.

Is there a way I can set my Kindle to download the full sample automatically?

  • When you download a sample, do you specify that it must be sent to your kindle (you may send it to several types of device)?
