Windows 8 reading app - won't access downloaded books offline

I downloaded my favorite books from The Cloud to the Windows 8 app on my new laptop. They do show up under the "Device" tab, but when I'm not on-line I cannot access them. No, I did not sign out of my account. When I went online again, they were there, under "Device."

Any suggestions? There are some books I'd rather read on my laptop than on my Kindle (cookbooks, for instance), and I often do not have an Internet connection. Any idea what's going wrong? Is there some setting for off-line viewing that I have turned off somehow and cannot find? Did the program install incorrectly? The FAQ's for the app weren't much help.

Thanks!

I wasn't seeing anything at all under Devices, and only got an error message when Cloud was highlighted. After awhile, instead of thumbnails of my books showing up under Cloud, I got a page of code of some sort. So I uninstalled the app, re-installed, re-downloaded the dozen books I had downloaded before, and everything is working fine now.

Must have been an install glitch.
