How does a book get on your kindle? Most people use the wifi download feature, if it can download it can upload.

But I am sure you can buy books from other providers.

Not a plug, just a request to any kindle (or other ebook reader) owner who has my ebook. I'd appreciate feedback if there appear to be any errors in the presentation. A re-write is on my long-term "to-do" list and I'd like to clean up any technical problems rather than repeat them.
Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.

Remind me again of the title of your book Alan, I didn't realise you could get it on kindle.

Sedge, I get your point re kindle, that is fine with me.

What is not fine with me is the console game makers making the games so that each person in a house has to buy one.  You don't buy a cd to find you can play it in the house but not on the car stereo?  I have an i phone as does my eldest and my youngest has an i pod, if they download an app, I get it as well, annoying actually, you wouldn't believe the rubbish they download   :D

They both have x box, and they used to buy a game each and share, now they have to buy the same game each to play online.  Fifa 13 for instance which costs £45 each game.  Plus the online membership, they are raking it in and being greedy.  Hubby says stop buying them games  :banghead:

Thanks for asking. Mods, if this is too much of a plug delete it.

Have a look on your kindle, it should have been delivered there if your kindle was on with wifi turned on.

I have had a look on my kindle, it isn't there.  However I have got an email with instructions.  Of course it would have been easier if I had just bought it from my kindle  :banghead:  I am so stupid at times!  ;D

I always buy from my computer and it automatically downloads to my kindle.  It sometimes takes a minute to find it, cos my kindle is organised in alphabetical order by author's name and often when I buy the 99p book I can't remember who wrote it and have to go back to Amazon to see.
