Hello to all the members of the Kindle Club, as you're probably all aware we suffered a bit of a disaster in the book department over the weekend. It would be greatly appreciated if you could re-upload any books that you may have on your Kindles or computers and get the library back to the state it was in before this weekend.

Thank you.

I would be...but unfortunately my Dropbox is full of DH's work stuff (which is why I had to pull out before)

Are there other similar options?

It's books that have been bought legally & then being shared.

They are not being copied which is illegal.

Surely this is just pirating? Or am I missing something?

Eve Wed 03-Jul-13 13:04:46

I know this is an old message but I did have lot of books from this club and they have now all gone. ;-(

I would love some more.

It was based on dropbox , but books were all deleted.

Would others be interested in starting again?

Thank you! That sounds good - they are always arguing about books!

Yes - you can run 4-5 kindles off one amazon account and the books can be downloaded to all the kindles

I would like to join please- I have hundreds of books on my kindle-
Am no wiser as to how this works though?

Sorry - further slightly random kindle query. If I buy both my children one, can I download the same book but only pay once? Eg. They both want to read the same book at the same time!

Did the sharing thing ever take off?
Would happily share my stuff and always interested in browsing other's.

Yes you can get pictures on a kindle, but they only come up in black & white on mine. Not terribly exciting if you want to read a children's book like The Gruffalo. I don't know if the Kindle Fire would be better? Probably worth having a look on the Amazon page and then asking on the E-reader forum on here - in the Book section.

SuzysZoo Sat 13-Oct-12 19:51:36

Sorry - can I ask a ridiculous question. do kindles have pictures too. Eg. If I buy my child a kindle and then they want to read The Gruffalo - does that work?

Isn't it illegal to share Kindle-format books in the UK? Someone would have had to strip the DRM out.... spoilsport

Have several 100 books ranging from trashy summer beach reads to some more heavy duty stuff, but would happily share them

Count me in, if the problem gets fixed. I'm spending way to much on kindle at the moment and have just read some great books on holiday that I'd love to share...

GiggleMummy Sat 14-Jul-12 09:09:13

I am very intrigued and would love to join and share if possible.

juneybean Fri 13-Jul-12 15:14:42

To those mentioning the sharing for two weeks, apparently that can only be done on the USA Kindles sad
