Is there a way that I can get my Google Books on Kindle? I bought the Kindle because it is of Android technology like Google Books. I was able to go from my original Motorola Droid to my iPhone 4s and download my books from Google Books, but I don't see an app for it on the Kindle. Is there a way to get my Google Books on my Kindle, so I can read them here? My iPhone is too small to read them comfortably.

Any help is appreciated!

Sincerely,
Amanda

Nope. There is no way to read Google books on the Fire.

If you are heavily invested in Google content you best bet is to get a Nexus tablet.

Can you download Google Chrome to your Fire? If so, you might be able to read them through the browser.

I was able to do it through Chrome! Thank you The Artist! I had to download the app on my Kindle & then download an extension on my Desktop which synced my tabs & bookmarks from laptop to my Kindle and Voila! I can read my Google Play books on my Kindle. It isn't pretty, but at least books I already bought can be read on my Kindle.

Thank you again! Now I am so glad to have My Kindle Fire HD (7)! I can do almost everything I need on the go, and when I don't want to use my laptop. As well as not have to clutter my house with books (I love books, but I have no place to put them, not enough room for everything. I love technology for that. Remember when we had bookshelves, tape/CD/VHS/DVD/Game organizers? Now we don't need them and can easily organize them on our devices and backup areas like external drives and online via online storage like the Cloud). I am a happy gal!

Yes, I have always loved books, but I donated almost all of mine to the library. I thought it would bother me, but I actually felt freer. The next time I move, half my boxes won't be full of heavy books, which will save lots of time and money!

I know what you mean. Same here. Mine all got donated too. It does save lots of time, money, and peoples' backs!

I pride myself on spelling and grammar. I am not perfect, but I try to do my best. How about those that spell tongue like tounge? I know there are other misspellings that I love like that one. I am too tired to recall them. LOL

I make a lot of errors, but they tend to be typographical in nature. For example, "jsut", "smae", and "teh", although I'll sometimes use "teh" intentionally.

Bad typists of the world untie!

The misspellings that get me are your/you're and there/their/they're.

R. Wilde, I type "teh" more often than "the", I think my left hand is dominant in typing for some odd reason.

I hate those! But, I do think that sometimes they are a product of the autocorrect/type ahead "features" where the computer think it knows best what you're (got it right here) saying.

The very worst of my pet peeves is 'loose' for 'lose.' I can (barely) understand to/two/too, your/you're and there/their/they're, but 'loose' and 'lose' aren't even pronounced the same!! To top it all off, very often you see this mistake in the following form:

"You are such a looser!!!"

Which is the saddest irony of all.

Or "What do I do if I loose my Kindel?"
