Bilingual w/Dictionaries

I made an amazing discovery, which everyone else probably knows, about using multiple dictionaries. For years, I've enjoyed reading novels from Britain and the U.S. so I have had two Oxford dictionaries and switch between them depending on the origin of the book. I do this mostly because of the slang terms being used. I want to read some books in Spanish and my Spanish is terrible. I couldn't get the Spanish/English dictionary on the collection with the English dictionaries. It's all by itself....

Longest Time to Wait for Trade In Decision?

My kindle was marked as delivered by UPS last February 22, 2019. It's been almost 3 weeks and there's still no decision. I'm not really complaining much as Amazon has given me a couple of bucks 'to apologize for the wait', but I'm still eager to get that 25% ASAP. They said it may take up to a month. What's the longest you had to wait for the trade in decision for Kindle eReaders?:(

Moon reader pro page options

Hello I have been using MRP for a very long time and started using the Amazon Kindle and was wondering is there an option to MRP to have the pages flip like a book and not scroll? I cannot find an actual manual to using the app and prefer to have it that way. Thank you and thanks for letting me join

Content Item not Available

On my Oasis 1 I have a book that shows in the content 2 times but is not available if I try to open it. I am sure this has been asked here before but I cannot find a way to get it cleaned up other than a total reset of the device. Does anyone have a better fix?

Smith Battleplan Folding Knife ~ Review

Smith Battleplan Folding Knife ~ Review. If you're looking for an EDC in which the thumb studs and flipper work, check out the Smith's Battleplan knife. Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- I recently received a Smith’s Battleplan Knife to test. Right away I must point out two features that work, unlike a significant majority of other knives that I test. The thumb studs and the flipper pop the blade out in record time. Maybe I’m not coordinated, but most of the knives with thumb studs that I test are sem...

Battery at rest....

Okay, I took my new PW4 and charged it to 100%. The green light came on at 97%. I unplugged the Kindle at 100%, turned on Airplane Mode, and closed the cover. I set the alarm for eight hours. When the alarm went off I checked. It was 99%. I turned off Airplane Mode and closed the cover. I set the alarm for eight hours. I wasn't home when the alarm went off and didn't check till two hours later. Ten hours without Airplane Mode and the battery read 99%. I use two Kindles and alternate them. If I ...

How terrible (or not) is the relatively recent quick-highlight feature?

Asking mainly out of concern for how the “quick highlight” feature tends to litter the MyClippings.txt file with accidental or erroneous highlights. I use MyClippings a lot and I even have a script for processing it according to my needs. I don’t have quick-highlight on my PW2 yet. It’s still on older firmware. On my device, you have to tap on “Highlight” in the popup menu before your selection is highlighted and copied to MyClippings.txt. This is how I prefer it. But I’d like to update my firm...

Does the Oasis track books read?

One of my favorite features about the Kobos is that is automatically tracks what books I've finished vs. what I am in the middle of reading vs. books unread - and I can filter by that status. I read a lot, so this is great to help me track what I've read and what I've started reading but got sidetracked from. However, I am considering buying an Oasis because my second Kobo reader just died (just like the first) within 18 months of buying it and Kobo customer service is complete crap, so I am l...

kindle paperwhite and calibre

For many years I used a Sony eReader with calibre. So when I bought a Kindle I continued using calibre to manage my ebook library. I just load books from calibre onto my kindle paperwhite when I want to read them. Because of this most of my books are not actually in the kindle cloud. If my kindle were to break or get lost, I would lose my place in all the books I have on there - and I suppose I would also lose things like my bookmarks. Given these circumstances, is there is a way for me to keep ...

Is it normal for the battery to drain while the device is not active?

I have put my Kindle to rest for over 24 hours and when I picked it up I found that the battery level had gone down 3%. Is it normal? I didn't use it at all and the WiFi was not on.

Troubleshooting Can someone try this test document?

this is a test azw3 I created that only has the phrase the quick brown fox... in four styles, regular, italic, bold, bold italic. It opens fine with calibre viewer, but voyage with 5.10.3 won't open it. I thought it was my custom fonts but removing the fonts folder and rebooting did not do it. Could someone (preferably on 5.10.3) try it out (file attached) and let me knows what happens? thanks Attached Files test - Unknown.azw3 (10...

PW4 problem waking up

I have now 3 or 4 times had my Paperwhite wake to a garbled screen: it is as if the screen was horizontally sliced and the slices were interlaced (like cutting a deck of cards in two and shuffling the two stacks together). So I see a sort of ‘double exposure’. The touch screen still responds, so if I tap I’m able to eventually navigate to Settings and then to Restart. (The other way is holding power button until Power dialog comes up with CANCEL RESTART SCREEN OFF options and tap in the right p...

Content Get full (or shorter) OED on Kindle?

The included Oxford Dictionary of English on the Kindle is fine. But I would love to get the full Oxford English Dictionary (you know, that 20+ volume monstrosity with the whole history of the English language) in epub/kindle format. Or failing that due to the obvious file size issues, at least the 2 volume Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, 6th ed., which I have in paper and supposedly has 1/3 of the entries in the full OED, as well as all words after 1700, and all words from Shakespeare or t...

Ereader Comparison Chart Help

I'm putting together a massive google spreadsheet to make it easy to compare and find info on current e-readers. Since it's a google sheet you should be able to sort it to find what you're looking for. So what spec categories are missing that should be added?

Good Idea to Get Kindle Oasis 2?

I'm VERY eager to get a Kindle Oasis 2 but worried about the battery. Considering that it's been more than a year since it was released, should I hold on to my 25% trade-in discount until May 31, 2019 (the expiration of the discount) for a new Oasis with better battery or is the KO 2's battery not as bad as people say it is?

Some Library Covers Missing

My wife has a Kindle PW3, in her Library section she likes to have all the book covers (images 6 per page), problem is she has 46 pages but only 7 pages show any images and also on p7 there are only 5 covers showing.

Troubleshooting Books Transferred from Calibre don't show up on Kindle Voyage book list

I've got a weird problem. When I transfer books from my caliber library they never seem to show up on my Kindle voyage book list. If I plug the Kindle in to my Windows PC, the books are in directories under documents. But they never seem to show up in the book list on my Kindle, nor can I search for them and find them. The only workaround I have found so far is to manually copy the MOBI files from each book's directory into the home path of the documents directory. Then the books show up right a...

converting amazon kindle downloaded in Feb 2019

I downloaded Amazon Kindle ap on my Mac Desktop, OSX Yosemite on Feb 26 2019 when I purchased an ebook. I then downloaded Calibre release I also downloaded DeDRM 6.6.2. Everything seems to be installed correctly. When I use the feature within Calibre to download a suggested book, there is no problem. Everything works great. However, the DRM protection has not been removed from the book I downloaded from Amazon. What am I doing wrong?

Content How to organise your library? I use Calibre because Kindle's collections are useless

How do you Kindle users organise your collections of books, browse through what you have bought, group books into categories, remember what you have read and decide what to read next, etc? I wish I had known it before buying a Kindle and about 200 books on it, but the Kobos integrate very well with Calibre: books can be tagged and classified with Calibre, and Calibre will very easily create Kobo shelves based on the tags, with no jailbreaking required. With Kindles, I find that managing more t...

PW4 Battery--Observations

1. I noticed, at 3 a.m., that when I plugged my PW4 in to charge the battery percentage continued to show and you could track the charge. On the PW3, the percentage disappeared when you plugged in the cable and you had to quit charging to check the progress. I like that change. 2. I'm just a user and not an engineer but it's my impression my PW4 is charging faster than did my PW3s. I don't know if it's a tech improvment, simply a newer battery, or my imagination. 3. Yesterday I was caught sh...
