Until last week, my kindle books were downloaded directly to my kindle ready to read. But on Friday, when I purchased a few books and waited for them to appear on my kindle, nothing happened. I signed back onto and the purchased books were in a "cloud." How can I get them to my kindle now? Thanks for your help!

From your Kindle, turn on the wireless/3G/WiFi, then look at the Archive Folder. Select the book/s you want and they should download to the device.

I just purchased an ipad and downloaded the kindle app. When I try to access my kindle books it says "you have no items in the cloud" How do I place my library in the cloud?

Did you register the app to your Amazon account?

Same here. As a matter of fact I am close to SHOOTING my Kindle and buying a Rook..... It's driving me crazy recently. It worked fine when I bought it but now????? Jeeezz. Oh, I bought mine 2/10/12 or so and it went crazy on 3/20/12.

If nothing is showing up in your archived items, contact customer service.

I just found that having a bad date/time prevents books in the cloud from showing up. I just went and manually entered the date/time in my iPod, restarted the Kindle app and all the books in the cloud showed up.

I think you meant "Nook", not "Rook".

And I'm sure you'll have a grand old time re-purchasing all the books that you have on your Kindle for your Nook.

Ta Ta!

It is still under warranty. Tell Customer Service before next month.

You know that post is nearly a year old, right?
