Ok...for a tech illiterate such as I....once books are loaded on a Kindle paperwhite they would also be stored on Cloud automatically? How do you delete books on the Kindle but leave them on Cloud? And...is there a way to leave your books on the Kindle without leafing through the entire list each time you want a particular book? Such as ....you have 100 books on board, half of which you forgot ofcourse, but you want to read a book that is at "the end of your list" thanks.

You need to make collections to put your books in. Whatever you want. Like TBR or Classics or whatever. If you choose to remove a book from your device, that's it. You have removed it from the device and it's in the cloud. You will see it under archived items. If you go to Manage my Kindle and remove it there, you have deleted it for good and if you want it back you will need to purchase it again.

To delete a book from the Paperwhite, press on the title and it will give you the option to delete.

To find a book on your Paperwhite, go to the Home Page and then press on the numbers in the bottom right corner. You will then get the option to search for a specific title of go to a specific page. I just discovered this trick.

You can categorize your books with something Amazon called Collection. It works like sorting files in a directory with your PC but there is a difference. With a PC, you can create a directory within a directory. With Kindle, you can not have a collection within a collection. If you need to create 2 collections, you need to create both of them at the same level of hierarchy.

I have a niece who is dyslexic and there is a new font called OpenDyslexic that can help her read. Can I download this font onto a Kindle and if so which one?

No, you cannot download fonts to any Kindle

When I press on the title, the book opens. There is no option to delete.

Do a long press. Press and hold until the option to delete appears.

I have a second generation kindle. Is it possible to convert e-pub format books to a kindle compatible format? Will kindle ever support the e-pub format?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 3, 2012 7:37:28 PM PDT
@eading Addict: It is unlikely that the Kindle will support epub natively, but no one here knows for sure - we are not from Amazon. You can convert epub to Kindle format IF the files have no form of DRM protecting them. I use Calibre.

I have a kindle fire and I am purchasing 2 kindle paperwhites for my teenage daughters, If I register the new kindles to my amazon account so we all can access the books that are on the account. But I do not want them to be able to purchase on my account or see credit card information. I was planning on giving then gift cards to make their purchases. Is there a way we can still share books but not let them use my billing information?

@Christina - All devices registered to an account use the 1-click payment method on that account. You can't have separate payment methods.

The Paperwhite does have parental controls that you can use to password-protect purchases from the device.

There are printer apps in the app store that will allow you to print to a wireless printer.

Just to name a few:

HP ePrint
EasyPrint
PrintBot

Erin there are production apps you can use on the Fire such as Quickoffice Pro

I have an Epson printer app on my iPad that allows me to print to my wireless Epson printer. You can check in the Amazon App store to see if the Fire has a similar way of printing.

If I buy a Kindle Fire, how do I get my books from my 1st generation Kindle transferred to it?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 26, 2012 8:05:30 AM PST
You don't transfer from one Kindle to the other. You download your books from your Amazon account to the new Kindle. Just be sure to have the Fire registered to the same account as the K1. If you have books from another site you will need to register your new Fire to those sites as well.

J. Olsen, technically speaking, the owner of that Kindle isn't supposed to sell it with content left on it. If it is a first generation Kindle, you may want to re-consider, as those models are approaching 6 years old.

You would not have access to those books unless you were registered to the account they were purchased on. You can't transfer Kindle books from one account to another. You would only have access to them as long as they were on the device.

Books are licensed to an account, not a device. The books may stay on the device, but you cannot transfer them to your account, and if you delete them, there is no way to get them back.
