The policy is NOT to return a book if you read it in less than 7 days. The policy gives you 7 days to determine if there are formatting issues, etc that requires the book to be returned. If you have over used the return feature, Amazon will remove it from your account.

and you'll need to contact Customer Service after that in order to return a book

If you have been reading books and then returning them, you are abusing the policy. Amazon is a store, not a library.

Ah, but it's a matter of comprehending what one reads.

Seriously, you really thought that's what the return policy meant? Amazon is a SELLER. They're selling books to make MONEY. How much money could they make if we all were allowed to return books we read in under 7 days?

By the way, if you return too many books Amazon can take away your ability to return them. They can tell you read the books you've returned. Maybe that's why you don't see it listed anymore. You returned too many.

That's pretty nervy, Sheila, saying out loud, here on a public forum, what you have been doing! Wow!

Might I ask how many books you have returned to Amazon?

I think we ought to give Sheila credit for her honesty. The fact that she stated what she did in an open forum makes me think it's likely she believed exactly what she said.

People like Sheila need our help and our understanding. Let's be kind, folks. Let's not be the kind of people who pick on someone with limited gifts.

I often read a book in one day. I am also smart enough not to expect a book SELLER to provide those books for free.

I think we should remove all the warning labels such as "Do not use hair dyer while sleeping" and "Do not hold chain saw by the wrong end" and just go back to survival of the fittest.

Of course. That's *exactly* Amazon's business model. To provide all the books everyone can read - completely free. Of course. *That's* it.

Jeff is crazy like a fox, isn't he?

Can you link to the policy that says you don't have to pay if you're fast enough reading it, please?

I know about the one week grace period in case there's something wrong with the book or you buy it by mistake, but I can't imagine a retailer doing what you say. It would be like a fast food restaurant not charging you if you're done eating in 30 minutes.

The policy is not to be able to return it if you've READ it within 7 days. It's to return it if you made a mistake in purchasing it (if you found, for example, that you had the book under a different ASIN), or if there are formatting issues. Sheesh, Amazon is NOT a library!

Hmmm, you're confusing me with facts. Amazon sure leaves the door wide open, doesn't it?

sure does

I've always said that Amazon's main problem is that they expect people to be smarter than most of them actually are.

No, no, Amazon, you have to put warning labels on electric heaters so that people don't use them in the bathtub to keep the bath water warm!

Looks to me like Sheila is still clueless. The instructions say to go to Manage your Kindle (and provides a convenient link), and she wants to know how come it doesn't appear on her Kindle.

It's still abuse of Amazon's policy and wrong on its face.

I want car dealers to let me drive a new car for 5 days and return it with no penalty of fees. Sure would be better than the rental car place that wants my money for every day I keep the car.
