Indies on Amazon Kindle Only

Why do so many independent authors choose to lock their eBooks into the Amazon Kindle ecosystem? With Amazon recently further locking down Amazon Kindle eBooks, I've been looking into other eBook stores. Many of the eBooks I've read are independently published and either solely available on Amazon Kindle, or only available on Amazon Kindle and Apple Books. Nothing on Google Play Books, Kobo, or independent eBook shops. It makes it difficult to avoid Amazon Kindle or leave the Amazon Kindle ec...

Troubleshooting Paperwhite 2018 Battery Issues

I bought the new Kindle Paperwhite 2018 2 weeks ago and for the last couple of days the battery has been running down to nearly flat after I have charged it, read for a while and come back to it the next day. Any helpful tips?

Oasis 1 internal battery, three years in

I bought an Oasis in May of 2016, and had an unfortunate warranty replacement four months later when I dropped it in the road and a car ran over it. The refurbished replacement has now been running for over two and a half years with heavy use every single day and God knows how many partial charges from 40-60% or thereabouts, and its warranty is running out: the internal battery seemed to be growing much worse (and *drastically* worse after the update to 5.10.2), with charging case charges showin...

Spyderco SC230GP-BRK Lil’ Native Plain G10 Knife Review

Spyderco SC230GP-BRK Lil' Native Plain G10 Knife Idaho – -( Ok, today we’ll talk about the second folder that I’ve tested in the Native line of Sypderco. Even though it is listed as a compact gentlemen-sized knife, don’t let it fool you. Yes, the Spyderco Lil’ Native C230G does only have a 2 1/8-inch blade but due to the design of the knife it allows you to choke down on the blade and the handle then fills your hand. So, you’re not ending up holding it with only three fingers. ...

Refurb Kindle 4 from Woot can't login to Amazon

I just got my first Kindle and attempted several times to login to my Amazon account without success. I even disabled 2FA which didn't help. I assume that Woot, being owned by Amazon, is not selling stolen Kindles, so that leads me to believe that the software is out of date. The sale page alleged that the Kindles were checked by Amazon techs. I logged in with my Amazon account and just assumed that Amazon would add the Kindle to my account when they shipped. I can't tell what the current sof...

can i have *both* syncing across android/kindle paperwhite AND bold/font weight?

Hi: So I primarily read on my kindle. I use calibre and the KFX output plugin to get weighted fonts there. But I also like the ability to read on my phone and android tablet. I get most of my books from public domain and not from the Amazon ecosystem. Right now I'm using Moon Reader+ on my phone/tablet and the paperwhite to read. I also like having the option to do font weighting on paperwhite. So it seems like my options are: 1) Send all files to my @kindle email. This would achieve syn...

Azw3 vs dual mobi: pros and cons?

I've been using old school mobi all these years, but now with an unjailbroken device, I need to use a newer format to have custom font. Azw3 and dual mobi look pretty much the same, but are there pros and cons of using one format vs another? (I'm using Calibre, though I can use another converter if need be.)

Troubleshooting Kindle Touch slows down gradually until I restart it

My Kindle Touch slows down gradually over time, so I have to reboot it each week or two. The worst effects of the slowdown are lagging page turns and slow translation (navigation to a dictionary and back). I'm using a dictionary often, so this might be a reason for this behavior. I've found a description of the same symptoms here. My Kindle firmware version: 5.1.2. Jailbreak version: 5.0.3 (installed it years ago). I installed a Russian keyboard years ago (keyboard_alff31_v0.1.0). Suspected t...

After 6 months of travel I made a critical addition to my packing list that's become my most essential tool

In March I left New York to travel around the world as Business Insider's   international correspondent. Though I brought just a carry-on suitcase and a backpack, I packed it with everything I thought I'd need for the trip. I created a   meticulous packing list. After returning home to reset and reflect, I realized that there was one item I needed to pack that would make my next trip less stressful and more organized: an electronics dopp kit.  An electronics dopp kit works like your regular to...

Kindle Keyboard - frozen (got it going once, but now stuck on anotyher page)

I have not used my Kindle Keyboard for years, and the battery went dead and it was frozen on "empty battery". I replaced the battery with a new one, but it was still stuck at empty battery screen. Spent weeks of trying all advice from internet, hard soft resets of various types etc. Tried different downlaods of Kubrick but cant get it to run (tried on USB stick, CD and DVD on 2 PCs and 3 laptops) Put paperclip in hole next to charger as a last resort and it wame up with the log on screen!

PW3 No USB mount. Can't copy jailbreak files

So, I've got what seems to be a bit of a unique problem on this PW3. The unit itself mostly works fine (Though has a strange reboot when waking up occasionally), but it will not mount the USB when plugged in. The storage itself seems to be OK, I can download books through the experimental browser just fine and they will work without a problem. When I plug in the USB though, I just get the normal USB connected screen, but nothing appears on the PC. The unit then appears to lock up, even when you ...

Oasis 2 Battery

The Oasis 2 battery is worse than my 11 inch iPad battery. Sometimes I read on iPad during day to save battery on kindle. Is there anyway to see if something is wrong with my kindle battery or if this is just the downside to oasis 2? I read kindle oasis at night with light set at 1, had it for year and battery has always been this bad, I love the device but poor battery makes we not want to use it.

Troubleshooting Strange behavier of my Kindle Voyage (page flip)

Hello together, since some months my Kindle Voyage (actual SW) acts a little bit confusing: When I close a book an reopen it again, I see the last page where I have been (that's what I expect). But: When I flip to the next page, my kindle jumps to the second page of the next chapter... This happens nearly every time. I checked this with my self made books (sideloaded) and with books I bought from amazon (direct downloaded from amazon). Always the same. I even made a test book (very simple ...

Amazon Kindle: Maximum documents in account reached

Hi all, I have a Kindle Voyage, which I have been using mostly for sending articles I want to read later. I am using 'send to Kindle' from my browser. For some time now, I noticed that the articles I send, dissapear in space. I.e. they never reach my kindle. After some research I saw that in my Amazon Kindle Library, I have reached a limit of 1199 documents. I haven't found a way to increase this number. I do not want to delete my articles that I have been gathering for years in my KV. I use...

Enjoying reading again with the PW4

I spent a long time away from the forum because I just simply wasn't reading. Sure, I read 22 books last year, but for me, that simply isn't enough. I've been reading ebooks for almost 7 years now, starting with the Nook Color. After I bought an iPad, I read exclusively on that, with some print books in between. I read profusely on my Nook Color, even though you could have apps on it they were really limited so I wasn't tempted to open another app like Twitter and get lost. But that changed wi...

Personal Document Library not showing up on Kindle?

Hi there. I just got a Kindle DX graphite for Christmas and I can't see any of the books I've sent from Calibre (via the Send by email feature) to my Kindle address. I also have a Kindle Paperwhite 3 that displays them just fine. The question is, is the Kindle DX too old for showing up the documents from the cloud? Or this has to do with the fact that Kindle DX can't connect to some sites (like Wikipedia) because Amazon stopped offering updates for that model? In that case, jailbreaking it w...

Troubleshooting New to Kindle...can I invert the text/background colors?

I just recently bought a Kindle PW4 and love reading on it, even better than my new 2018 iPad Pro 12.9”. But one thing I miss from ereader apps like Marvin (RIP) and MapleRead is the ability to have a black background with white text. I can’t seem to find a way to do this. It seems possible because when I wake it from sleep, it refreshes with a white text on black screen. Anyone know how this works? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

New to Forum but not to Kindle

:rolleyes: My First Post - Tried searching for the subject but result was confusing. Not sure whether others have encountered the same problem I encountered. On New Years day I upgraded my old series 4 Kindle to a new Touch unit. I understand that the system is similar in most respects to the Paper White version. I backed-up all my old 'Documents' folder from my old Kindle to my PC and connected my new Kindle. Hello there was no Documents folder showing in Windows Explorer. Okay, assuming...

Did I damage my kindle or just being paranoid?

So I got a new paperwhite last month and a regular case for it, one of the non leathers. It seems pretty sturdy but I’m not sure how much of a protective case it is but one night I went to sleep with it at the foot of my bed, unknowingly, and in the morning I found it on my carpet. Doesn’t seem like a bad call but it seems likely that it would have knocked on the wooden outer frame of the bed before hitting the carpet. I couldn’t help but stare at the screen to check for damage and I noticed th...

Spyderco Advocate Flipper-Style Folding Knife Review

Tom reviews the Spyderco Advocate Flipper-Style Folding Knife. After testing the Spyderco Advocate I'd recommend it for an EDC or self-protection folder. Idaho – -( Spyderco Knives has a legendary following of knife connoisseurs and for good reason. Everyone that I have ever tested has come from the factory with a wicked sharp edge.

Best sideloaded dictionary?

I have a blacklisted PW2 that cannot use the default Kindle dictionary. But I am able to use a .mobi dictionary (WordNet 3 Easy) by sideloading it. I have tried some other e-reader dictionaries but the WordNet 3 Easy is the only one that seems to integrate with the Kindle UI, the rest are not available to select as the default dictionary when long-pressing words. The only issue is that the WordNet 3 Easy dictionary isn't very good, and lacks a lot of definitions that I need. Are there any other ...

Kindle Android app now has continuous scrolling

My phone's Kindle app updated this morning and up popped a notice that it now has scrolling and it asked if I want to turn it on. I said yes and wallah! It scrolls! I love it. I use the Kindle app as well as Moon+ on my phone and scrolling is the main reason I like Moon+. I don't let it scroll automatically. I just use my finger to go down the page as needed. Now my Kindle app does the same thing and I suspect I'll be using it more than Moon+. In the past I mostly used Moon+. It's very ...

Possible to search for books which credits will apply to?

I have $2.61 in credits which expire in a couple of days --- they will apply to the book _A Perfect Horse_, (which is currently on sale) but I already own it --- is there a way to search for books which the credits will apply to? (this is not a gift card --- that's a separate balance)
