I have turned on my Whispernet and checked several times today.... but so far it says I have no new downloads available.  I thought that our free pre-ordered The Cook's Illustrated How-to-Cook Library was supposed to be delivered today.  I don't always have a good Whispernet connection in our area so I thought I would see if anyone else had received theirs.

Nope, I haven't gotten mine either nor have I gotten the Frommer's City Set which was supposed to be free according to the email and ship the same day.  It is priced at $39 in the store, but customer service assured me I'd not be charged for it based on the email.

Have you tried to download from the Manage Your Kindle page?

Looks like release date for both of these titles has been pushed back.
City Guide - March 5
Cooks - I think I read Mar 26

I know that the cookbook was promised for Feb. 25, but I haven't recieved mine yet either.  wondering whether they're sending them all on the same day or spacing them out as they did with the new software.

When I went to the Manage Your Kindle Page, I see that they have, indeed changed the shipping date to March 26.  Some nerve!  :mad:

I see I'm not the only one who was disappointed that I didn't get my new download today. I love my Cooks Illustrated cookbooks (and magazines), and I'm very interested to see how they "translate" on my Kindle. Although I'm not sure if my Kindle will ever replace my dead-tree cookbooks. Does anyone here regularly use kindle cookbooks?

Just checked - no email from Amazon, but on manage my account it has changed to say "processing order" in the open order section (expect it will be moved over to pending shortly).  I have lousy WN coverage so it will probably take forever to download.

Well, I can't connect to Wn eight now so who knows what's up. Maybe my "ship" email was a mistake...should go check Amazon. And double check that its not being sent to harm's K.

If you're in a shaky whispernet area, I recommend transferring it from your computer. It's a very large file.

I don't think I was expecting such a large cookbook...There are over 24,000 locations! Just flipping though the index there are tons of recipes that look really yummy.

This may be the impetus I need to finally try this. I don't why I have been afraid I won't be able to figure it out.
