How to Read Kindle Version?


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Forums.

Please try to avoid doubleposting. if you don;t know how to edit posts on this type of forum, here are some tools that may help:

Spoiler

At the bottom left of a post you will see a "+" icon, a "Quote" link, and (your posts only) and Edit and Options tools. On the bottom right you will see an up arrow.

  • The Up Arrow is how you thank people or "like" a post
  • The "Quote" link is exactly that, when you click it the quote will be added to the reply at the bottom of the thread wherever the cursor is
    • So, if you have already started to reply before you decide to quote you can then add the quote before or after your text depending on the cursor location when you click "Quote"
  • The + icon is multi-quote. As you read a thread, if you want to quote multiple items you click that for each post
    • As you click +, you should see a toaster pop-up on the bottom right of the browser window showing how many quotes you will have
    • They are added in the order you click the + icon, not in the original post order, so you can set the order of quotes for your reply
    • When you are ready to reply, click on the toaster pop-up and it will take you directly to the reply section and add the quotes automatically
  • Finally, you can also highlight a small section of a post and, when hovering over the highlit portion, click the "Quote" button that pops up.
  • Also note that you can move quotes after they have been added to your reply.
    • For example, you add a quote and realize there are no empty lines below it for you to type - so you can hit "enter" before the quote to make an empty line then when you hover over a quote you will see a 4-way arrow at the top-left that you can use to drag the quote up (or down)  and move the quote to before the empty line. . .
  • Use the Edit link to make changes to a completed post or add information to your post if it is the most recent (to avoid double posting)
    • Quote buttons will still send a quote to "Reply" if you have a post open for edit, but it is easy to cut/paste the quote to the Edit box
    • Editing the first post in a thread allows the thread-creator to edit the thread title.
    • Editing allows you to add a reason for the edit (Spelling and grammar (SPAG), formatting, clarification, new information, etc.), but it is not required.
  • Next to Edit you will also find an "options" dropbox, you can use this to hide your post if you want to remove it after posting
  • At the top of a post you will find "Report Post"
    • Use this if you do accidentally double-post (sometimes it's the browser or a slow link that causes a double post) - just leave a message that it was an accidental double post and the Mods can fix it. If it was the first post of a new thread that doubled, they usually can merge the threads if they both have answers, so all of the content is retained.

Hope that helps.

Trying to open the file sent our emails isn't able to open. Anyone else have this problem or have a solution?

What have you done? I downloaded the EPub file for Kindle on my phone then sent it to the Kindle App which put on the Kindle library. 

What device are you using? I was able to access and read both the normal epub and kepub versions. I also use Calibre* for organizing and managing all of my eBooks. 

The Kindle specfic version should sideload to your device like any other sideloaded ebook, but in a pinch you may be able to convert the epub to mobi and use that on Kindle as well (unless Kindle will finally use epub). 

 

*Calibre is a freeware ebook management suite. They accept donations, but no payment is required (nor activation - it even has a portable version so you don;t need to install a program if you don't want to). It can also edit ebooks, edit metadata and much more. PM if you want more details.

I mean I can read the PDF version but I like the accessibility features provided when I read a book straight from Kindle!

If you go to your Kindle/Kindle app, then go to settings, you should be able to see an Email address. You can send it via attachment to that address.

If that doesn't work, you will need to go to your Kindle account, and add your Email to the accepted Emails list, then it should work.

There seem to be a lot of other ways to do this, some of which worked for me, but this was the most consistent one.
