    Maybe Amazon puts some form of encryption that makes it accessible only from your account?! Not sure as I don't use it..

    Have you tried browsing into the Letter/Number folders Fudgey? The books may be within them. Again not having used a Kindle, I don't know how it arranges the files on the computer.

    As for our Darling spouses, my wife feels the same. Five 6-foot bookcases were where she drew the line. So, I started stacking some of my books side-ways. Deceptively space saving. ;)

    You talking about the one's I sent you Fudgey?

    I can send them direct from the computer. I know they will go on the Kindle. :)

    I've never actually taken them off the Kindle and put them on the computer so I'm of no help! :(

    Amazon is the only place I have gotten books, I will have to download one from somewhere else and see what happens.

    ok, my first question :)

    if you get a book for free does that mean you can give it to friends?

    thanks

    It's not hard cags and if you don't get the instructions, you can find them online.

    And hopefully this thread gets us all a lot of places to find books....maybe even do some swapping!!!

    And congrats on your getting a Kindle. :)

    That's awesome!!!

    Not sure about sharing from a Nook. I am trying to figure out how to do it with the Kindle. I know you can lend one for 14 days but sometimes that's not long enough.

    That's the trouble with the ones that I'm getting from Amazon right now. They are free but go straight to the Kindle.
    I sure don't know how to upload to the computer. I might do some searching and I get the first one read though!!
    Then I don't know if they have a guard on them.

    I was looking to see if I could find something. They said that the are protected so you can't share them but I will keep looking. I can lend them to someone who has a Kindle for 14 days though.

    Are these ebooks you bought or from a Library?
