Re: kindle books

Yes. Using the Kindle Cloud Reader, you will have an experience almost identical to using an actual Kindle.

I am using this and it's great... can purchase/get free books, and check out digital kindle books from my local library as well, and send that to my Kindle Cloud Reader.

 

Go to https://read.amazon.com and hold the PlayBook in portrait (tall) fashion) as you start. It does not work well in landscape (wide) format.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Re: kindle books

Trying to do the same thing.  It responds: "Your web browser isn't supported yet. Download a browser below."

I tried Chrome 20+ and Firefox 10+.    Neither will download..they both say "Retry Download".

Ideas?

Thanks,

Jack
