Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / iPod touch/iPad Question
« on: April 15, 2010, 08:54:14 pm »
Late last night I decided to register on my iPod touch, my AOL account to see read my email. I had just learned how to set my passcode on it for added security from reading kindlenation email newsletter. I thought that if I get the iPad, that now would be the time to do more on my iPod touch to make sure on the future purchase. Well, I finally had to get to bed, but couldn't quite figure out how to get to this kindleboards group. Would some kind soul give this newbie computer illiterate instructions on what to do, please???? I'm trying to test out going to my groups, or looking up whatever on the net. I tried to load the user's guide, but it said I needed more memory. Thanks!

The Book Corner / ARIANA'S PRIDE
« on: December 21, 2009, 07:12:11 pm »
I finished Ariana's Pride the other day by our very own Gertie, aka, Margaret Lake, of the Outlander Series Book Club, here. Fantastico!!! Didn't like Ariana at 1st, but as she matured, I liked her alot. Loved the story. Uh, how much longer do I have to wait for the 2nd book in the series, Gertie....Margaret???  :D

The Book Corner / WIMPY BOOKS price drop
« on: November 27, 2009, 08:06:07 pm »
I just bought all the DTB's, the Wimpy Books from Amazon, after repeatedly looking at them at BJ's Wholesale Club. They're funny. The price went down on that series at Amazon. I'm guessing that I paid over $10.00 more. Bummer for me!!!!!!! :'( Great for you.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Anyone having problems with the Amazon site?
« on: July 24, 2009, 08:59:53 pm »
Hi, For the past 4 days this week, I'd check out the free books at Amazon & I would see the mouse's arrow quiver, when I was on page 2 or more & my computer would freeze. I then had a hard time getting to shut down my computer. Then tonight, I decided to just type in I got in, & scolled down the page. My computer froze with an hour glass. I had to jump thru hoops again to get off AOL. I was about to shut down, but then I didn't have to. I never had this problem before with Amazon. Does anyone know what's going on? I don't have that problem here.  ???

Let's Talk Kindle! / Using Amazon credit card???
« on: May 16, 2009, 08:47:41 pm »
I posted this on KindleKorner earlier tonight, but I get the digest version, so won't be getting my email until tomorrow. Plus, others may be interested in this. Anyway, I just got my Amazon credit card. I got the card so that I could get the bonus points/coupon to use for Kindle books, paper books & other things. The instructions from the credit card info. said that after picking an address, on the order page at Amazon, you click on the radio button. Does anyone here have the card & knows for sure what to do??? I use 1 click & Amazon Prime - 2 day free ship. Where/how would I see the radio button to click on??? Thanks! I'm just trying not to have to contact Amazon, unless I have to.  :)

Let's Talk Kindle! / 2 books dissappeared
« on: May 12, 2009, 11:14:17 pm »
I had a weird problem ast night. I couldn't wake up my K1, but did notice the the silver thingy was moving around as if Amazon might be upgrading my K1. Today. I still coudn't wake it up. I shut off my Kindle. Nothing. Then I took out my SD card, which had nothing on it. Put the Kindle back on.Then, I reset. It worked. Then, I noticed that 2 of my Outlander series books were gone, but 1 Outlander series book that I had finished reading was there. I looked in my contents page. Nothing. Wasn't there. So tonight, I re-downloaded the 2 books again from my computer. Does anyone know what could have happened???? I know that I had not deleted them.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Mighty Bright Light to the rescue
« on: March 25, 2009, 10:23:19 pm »
Tonight, I went out with family to dinner. Restaurant dimmed lights so it was hard to see to pay. I was asked if I had a flashlight, since I seem to carry everything in my handbag. Nope, nada. Then I looked down at my handbag & I remembered my Kindle's book light. Whalaaaa! it worked.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Whispersync not working!?
« on: March 08, 2009, 07:47:18 pm »
I had both my K1 & K2 on Whispernet. I tried to sync to the furthest page in my K1 from the book that I reading on my K1. On my K2, it was put to sleep. It didn't work. Am I doing something wrong? Should I have had the book open at the same time on my K2?

Kindle Accessories / Extra set of Velcro with Oberon Cover?
« on: December 25, 2008, 08:59:48 pm »
I was just curious. I was reading the material that came with my Oberon cover last night & it said that they give you an extra set of velcro, should you ever need it. I didn't get an extra set of velcro. Did anyone else get the extra velcro?
Toby, who loves her new cover!!!!!

Kindle Accessories / Problem with cancelling a skin. Need Advice!
« on: December 12, 2008, 09:32:15 pm »
Well, I just had to keep reading the wonderful posts here & saw 15% discount at Decal Girl. That's like waving a red flag in front of me. The trouble was that 1) I didn't know if the coupon still applied today, Friday 12/12. 2) I just ordered 1 at Amazon from My Gift. So I thought, go ahead & take a chance & order that same Leopard Spots at Decal Girl &  I ordered another one, the blue Winter one, that's been posted here. After ordering at Decal Girl, I went right back to Amazon to cancel. There was no button to cancel, so the only thing left was to contact the seller from the Amazon site. I did. I'm hoping that the seller will cancel my order. I haven't heard back, but it is late & Friday night. I now realized that I should have gone to Amazon to try to cancel 1st. I just didn't imagine a few hours later that I couldn't cancel the order & this being at night time. If I had tried to cancel there 1st, I could just leave it as it, & then just ordered another skin at Decal Girl, & that would be that. Now, if MyGift does not cancel my order, I will have 2 leopard Spots Skins & here I was trying so hard not to buy anything. I guess it's a lost cost. LOL! Does anyone have any advice? UPS was supposed to deliver the Amazon skin.
