I'm a fairly new Kindle Keyboard owner. It's a 3G model, but it seems that I live in a rural fringe reception area, so getting a signal indoors is almost impossible on most days.
Since I've got Kindle for PC installed on my computer and have already downloaded purchased books to that (over dialup, which is sometimes a painful process), I would like to be able to transfer books from the Kindle for PC application to my Kindle via the USB connection. I've tried connecting the KK and doing a drag-and-drop of the displayed book cover that I wish to transfer over to the Documents folder but without success.
Is what I'm attempting even do-able? If so what is the trick I'm missing?
The Kindle manual and online FAQ have been of no help. Both assume that you're downloading the book from the cloud directly to the computer then doing the transfer. I've already got the book on the computer in the PC app, so why download another copy (over dialup again) to in turn transfer it to the KK?
Anyone have any tips?
On a related note, when (if ever) will Amazon make a version of the Kindle app for a Linux platform? I do 95% of my work on Linux, so it's a PITA to switch over to a Windows platform just to use the Kindle software.
