I am going to be living in China for the next year and I wanted to know if I will be able to download English Kindle books in China. I have seen several forum posts stating that people have had some trouble downloading/ purchasing books for their Kindles in China. However, most of these posts are years old and I was wondering if anything has changed.
I spoke with Amazon customer support but did not get a definitive answer.
The lady did say that one way to get around it would be to have someone in the US purchase the books I want through the account that my Kindle is linked to and when my Kindle connects to wifi in China it will automatically download the books that were purchases by my friend/family member in the US through my US amazon account. Would this method work?
(I will be using a US account with a US credit card linked to it)
Can someone offer me some definitive answers on this topic. It would be much appreciated!
