Bookmark support for book samples? (small issue really)
« on: December 29, 2017, 10:46:53 AM »
Hi all. I got given a kindle paperwhite as a gift as I'd been using my Ipad to read my kindle books for the longest time. One thing I love is the ability to bookmark pages, even when I download a sample of a book (on the Ipad app)

However, I've noticed that I cannot figure out how to bookmark pages on sample books on the kindle device itself. I tried again to bookmark pages on the Ipad app and iPhone app (for book samples) .....but alas, not the kindle device itself. Has anyone else noticed this?

Thanks

P.s, apart from that, I'm moving my kindle very much :)

So . . . you can bookmark in a book, but it doesn't work if it's a sample?  I've never noticed that . . . . but, then, I don't get samples very often.  Weird.

I just tried to set a bookmark in a sample on my Oasis2 and the menu option for bookmarks is grayed out.

I guess it's a feature then, and not a bug. ;)
