No I don't find it less appealing, but I do go through "phases" in my reading with classic literature.

Rereading _For Whom the Bell Tolls_


I really loved that book.

I'm reading Lizzie. I'm about 25% in and liking it so far.

I read around 100 books a year, almost never read kindle only published or self published books on kindle.  Learned early I just don't like the quality of most so don't spend my time on them.  Almost all the books I read are kindle versions unless it isn't available.  I have a BA in Literature so maybe I just got over the paper feel thing. To me it is quality of writing and convenience of the kindle. I like have so many books at my fingertips, being able to control font and lighting, and the translation option is nice as well. To each their own. But I don't aagreecat all with the person who thought kindle was just to introduce to readers. But then again maybe it's a genre thing.

I am reading The Game of Kings, by Dorothy Dunnett. I'm only about 20% in, but I'm enjoying it so far.

I just finished which is volume 2 of the series; you should start here:

The series defies categorization -- elements of fantasy, steam punk, classic mystery, sci fi . . . Kindle editions aren't cheap, at $11.99 but volume one occasionally goes on sale, and they are available through Overdrive. I've already got on the queue for volume 3 at my locals. :)

On am next on waiting list at library for the first in series then if I like it I will buy the others.

I use a free iPhone app, have for 3 years, it is called book wings and really easy to use. I've read 77 books this year.

I only have two kindles, the oasis and voyage, and thank you for version numbers. They are both up to date. But a couple minutes ago I got a third email. I only have the two kindles registered to my account. It has names fir my kindles but none of them are for kindles I have ansthenes aren't names I've ever used.

33
I received an email a few minutes ago saying my kindle needs to update to continue to work correctly. But it doesn't say which kindle. I have an oasis and voyage and as far as I know both are up to date. Anyone else get this email?

My oasis did a minor update, it is 5.8.1.0.1. I can't see a difference otherwise. Anyone else?

I attempted to make to purchases on prime day using the amazon visa30 discount code. $30 off of $150 purchase. But both time I got an code expired notice and gave up. Today I received an email from Amazon saying they noticed this had occurred ( I didn't bother to call or email, I just gave up trying). Amazon visa put a $30 gift card on my account. Anyone else have this happen?

I just received my new oasis 3G without offers. I set it up and it comes with a "kindle solstice" users guide. No oasis guide. When I go to cover of users guide it says paper white 3 users guide. Anyone who has received a recent oasis seeing this?

A couple of people have mentioned the Notes Export. While I have Page Flip now, I can't seem to find Notes Export - how is this accessed?

You have to open a book, and you have to have made notes in it, then hit the menu, tap on notes, export notes is an option on that list. It will email you copy of the notes you have made on that book.

Well, I couldn't help myself. I held out for several days but just ordered an Oasis/Merlot/3G/no SO.  Estimated delivery July 13!  I kept telling myself I didn't 'need' it. I have a PW2 and a Voyage. But, today, I decided I don't have to 'need' it. As long as I can afford it, why not treat myself! I'll give one of my other Kindles to a niece or nephew or one of my daughters-in-law.

I see here that others are getting longer delivery Windows and no availability. I wonder if it depends on which part of the country you're in?  I'm in Delaware right now.

I think it depends on what combination you are ordering for dates. Not where. I ordered same as you yesterday with same delivery estimate.  I'm in Oklahoma.

Interestingly, I see that while page flip now works on both my Voyage and Oasis, it doesn't always work on the same books on both devices - there is at least one book where it works on the Oasis,  but not on the Voyage (and the Go To contents table for that book also works only on the Oasis).

I had that issue, I just deleted book from device it wasn't working on and downloaded again and it worked.

Or maybe if the availability date is far enough out, Amazon just reports "unavailable" rather than create expectations for Novenber delivery. Producing 3G must be low priority.

But the Merlot 3G is in stock (without offers)

how do I get it in list view.
Thanks
If you are on the home screen you can swipe sideways from right to left. I think you can also do it under the top menu by tapping my library and choosing list view.

Where are the dots on my oasis ?
The dots are under the title when you put the home page in list view, instead of picture covers.

I honestly doubt it will happen either, but Tige would feel pretty silly if it did, so...

I can't imagine how far out delivery dates would be for oasis if tgey put it for sell on prime day.

Curious, the Voyage firmware on the website is the same as what's on my Voyage from the update a couple of weeks ago. Did yours update OTA?

I've posted on this yesterday, maybe it was a different thread. I updated my voyage software a couple weeks ago to 5.8.1. Which it still lists on the device as version 5.8.1. But yesterday the page flip became active on several books already on my device without it updating or changing from 5.8.1. Someone on the other thread said they had read on mobile reads that other people had commented the same, but I don't go to mobile reads so I don't know how many.  All I did yesterday was restart the device, because I do that every few weeks, but I didn't manually updated and if it did an OTA update (as I stated) it didn't change version number from 5.8.1

It looks like only the Oasis firmware has been updated thus far. :)



It updated on my voyage.

Maybe it is only on the Oasis right now? I will wait and see. I don't think I will use it all that much but there are times where it would come in handy.

I have it on my voyage. The books have to support it. I've check 6 recent downloads and 5 do b
