Hello! I just received a new Kindle HDX today, upgrading from my first generation Kindle Fire. I was just curious if the books are going to download by themselves or if I will have to do each book individually? It's kind of a pain in the ass to do them all individually, so I'm hoping for a fast solution! Thanks!

Mariana, have you tried clicking 'sync' on your new Kindle?

I have, it doesn't seem to do anything. But every time I turn it back on, it seems to have downloaded some more, so perhaps I just need to be patient.

You have to download them one at a time from the cloud. Just because the covers display in the carousel doesn't mean that the books are downloaded to the device.

That is what I thought, although you'd think they would come up with an easier way to do it! Especially for people who have hundreds of books!

No, they can't make it easier because each book has to index every word in that book so that the search function can work properly. It's not just because they can't think of a way to make it easier.

I am just downloading a few books at a time on my new PW. I don't need all of my books downloaded !right now! This is my fourth Kindle, so I've been through it before.
