Perhaps renting works differently from buying/lending/borrowing ebooks, but all you do is to download the Kindle reading app on your device. Then, the rented item will magically appear after you purchase it. I know the android Kindle app works great on mobile devices. I don't know if Calibre has the ability to strip DRM from ebooks.(NOTE: We don't discuss ...

I asked the same question to an Amazon customer service. The answer I got was NO. I did recommended them to design a way to allow users to link their multiple accounts in whatever countries. What I'm doing now is using an Android simulator on my desktop computer, where I can run a separate Kindle app and use a different Kindle account. The Android ...

This sounds like a limitation of the software, so you probably won't be able to get around it from the device. First, I recommend reporting this as a bug to Amazon. Don't expect them to fix it right away or anything, but it's always good to let the devs know when something doesn't behave as you as a user want. ;) If your final goal is to get all your books ...

To be honest there are high probabilities that your screen died when you dropped the keyboard on the kindle's screen. My suggestion if you wanna keep it would be to remplace the entire screen by buying a brand new and following a tutorial like this one. Otherwise taking into account that the release date of the kindle DX was on July 1, 2010. You may ...

[Note: I know this thread is old, but I found it via a web search and have an answer for people in the future who find it that way as well.] There does not appear to be a built-in app, menu item, or button that allows you to view the download queue. On my Kindle Fire HDX, however, I can swipe down from the top, and any in-progress downloads are shown in the ...

Methods for estimating page count for ebooks depend on a variety of things and don't really indicate anything. Different ebook distributors use different ISBNs. It used to be that print publishers would have a single ISBN. Nowadays, when you publish on a distributor's platform they will tend to assign an ISBN specific to the store. Google Play stores ...

If your book isn't DRM-protected or you manage to DeDRM it, you could convert it to an epub book with Calibre, regenerate the TOC from all headings and convert it back to an azw3 or kfx book. (If the original book is an azw3 book you could also directly edit it with Calibre Editor.) Obviously, this method will only work if all headings were marked with h1.....

Calibre uses the address that was entered in the Sharing books by email dialog box. Apparently, the developer didn't anticipate that someone would try to use send without configuring email settings. You might want to contact him and let him know about this issue. (He usually fixes problems the very same day.)

I think I see the problem (or one problem at least). I have a massive set of collections on the kindle app for android. (Like 50 collections holding 2000 or more ebooks). But when I install the Kindle for PC app for my Windows desktop, it does not let me import the organized collections from the Kindle app for android. When I use the Kindle for PC app, ...

I have purchased several Tor books on Google Play that are DRM-free and they work perfectly. Before buying, look for the "This content is DRM free" label in the book details. Then, after purchase, visit your book library on a computer (https://play.google.com/books/purchases), click the dots on the book to get a menu that includes "Download EPUB", which you ...
