I don't get whispernet, so is it at all possible to download the free samples offered on Kindle books? 

I *did* try to get one via whispernet - sent it to my Kindle then went off to find somewhere to sync, but it never reached my device (full books did so I know the sync worked)

Is there any hope for samples for those of us in the boonies??

We have a link at the top of the board for people to email samples to non-whispernet friends. However, there was a report that it might not be working at present.

Another workaround is to download a sample from Mobipocket (if the book is also sold there). Save to your computer and then transfer to your Kindle and it will open so you can read it. Mobipocket only samples 5% of the book so it is shorter than the 10% from Amazon, but at least it is something.

Good luck and report back,
