I recently got a new iPad. I purchased a kindle book from Amazon. As I was reading the book today, I notice that in the bottom left hand ornery of the iPad Kindle App screen it says "34 hrs and 36 mins left in book"???

I thought the book was mine!

Please explain

That's just an estimate of the time it will take you to finish the book, based on your reading speed.

You can keep the book as long as you like - it's not a time limit. ;-)

The Artist says:
That means, at your current reading speed, it will take you that amount of time to finish reading the book.

It doesn't mean that it will disappear from your account after that time.

Thanks Ann and The Artist. That is reassuring and also pretty neat ( in my opinion). Now how I close the discussion?

You can't close it. Eventually it will fall off the first page and no one will see it.

Until sometime in 2015 somebody somehow finds it & asks some off the wall question that has nothing to do with the OP's question.

Just sayin...

That will definitely happen well before 2015...

LOL! Yes, it will, but it will still happen in 2015. =)

LOL, you're in fine form tonight, Kessa.

Thanks Artist. =)

I've been seeing a lot of your posts lately - I'm now waiting for the Pro banner to appear under your name.

The Artist says:
Oh, no, I gave that up a long time ago, Kessa. I used to use my real name on the forums, but decided that wasn't a good idea (it began with a B). We spoke on the phone a couple of times.

Oh no! *Kessa hangs head in shame*

You're not pipeline or Saintly, so my mind is drawing a blank.

I have always just assumed that you were a man - if you are a woman, did you give me a bunch of stuff for my ferrets? 2 cages & all.

The Artist says:
No, sorry. I am a woman. If I tell you that my name began with Bl, does that help? We spoke quite a while ago, when that Madam was threatening you.

I'm going to bed now, so I'll catch up on this thread tomorrow.

If you can't remember, don't worry about it. I just wanted you to know that they're not pinning no stinkin' badge on me!

LOL! I always guess wrong about the sex of posters, if it isn't obvious by the name. Sorry about that.

And while I can't remember your name, I do remember you now. And yes, it has been awhile. (the Bl helped).

I'm getting ready for bed myself. Later. =)

No e-book is ever yours. What you buy is a limited license to tread the e-book in question. That license remains yours when you buy it...as opposed to renting it, borrowing it, etc. The time listed is an estimate of how long it may take you to finish reading the e-book.
