doc. . . .suicide is correct, Amazon doesn't remember that you downloaded samples  I have discovered at times that I'd gotten samples more than once!  I think because they are non-DRM and only partial, they just don't bother.  Using the universal wish list -- you can download it and put on your browser bar -- is a good alternative.  I haven't found that you can put Kindle books on your wish list in the usual way at the Amazon site.

I have a First Gen Kindle and since I have an SD card installed, I move my samples there so if something should happen to the Kindle I might still have the samples.  At the least I'd be able to read the titles via my computer.  An alternative for you would be to periodically view your kindle files through your computer.  I think you can even copy the sample files as a back up since there's no DRM.  Seems like you could do this even if the screen had failed as long as the underlying operating system was good.  Then you should be able to move them back to a new Kindle, but I wouldn't swear to that.  But at least you have titles.

Yes, in fact there's a thread stuck at the top of Tips & Tricks called 'sharing samples' or something of that sort. . .for folks NOT in WN area. . .you can partner up with someone who is, have that person download the sample, and then they can transfer it to their computer and e-mail it to you so you can put it on your Kindle.
