All you need to do is install Kindle for PC and register it to your Amazon account. You can read about it here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_200127470_PC?nodeId=200388510
and download it here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000426311
although you can't print directly from any Kindle book.

You can also read Kindle books in a web browser with the Cloud Reader. Go to http://read.amazon.com and log into your account.

You may have to contact Kindle support for that one as we are just fellow customers here. When you purchase a book, it should immediately show up in Manage Your Kindle on line. The only time that it doesn't would be if you purchased it on a different account - again only Customer service can track that one down.

It could be the same thing for now showing up on your K4PC The app must be registered to the same account as you purchased the book in.

Edit - Kindle cust support is found by clicking help on the top menu bar and then the contact us button on the next page. I suggest using the Amazon will call you feature if possible. I find they usually cal within 1 min.

Hi Laure,

Did you purchase the book from Amazon?

And you cannot find it on your Manage Your Kindle page?

Thank you, I have just sent an email out to customer support because no matter what I do the books do not show up in my account.

@Laure - It sounds like you may have more than one Amazon account. When you go to your 'Manage Your Kindle' page and click on 'Manage Your Devices', is your Kindle Fire listed there? If not, your Fire is most likely registered to a different account.
