I've never had a problem last this long before sharing a message from my kindles. Starting last night I can't share highlighted texts or reviews at the end of books. I had an amazon chat that was a waste of time and now the tech escalated the issue. Is anybody else experiencing this problem lately. I only noticed it last night as that is when the book was finished.

Linda, I am not using this feature so I have nothing to say off the top of my head, but it would be good if you told us your Kindle model and what are exact symptoms - someone with same model will try to replicate the problem.

I have a kindle paper white. Generally at the end of a book a message comes up that says before you go please rate the book and there is a share button to the left of the stars. I click the share and click share again. At the top of the page I can see the word connected then message shared. But about five minutes later I get an email that says this:

Hello Linda K. Polovchik,

You tried to share a message from Kindle to Twitter and Facebook and The message was as follows:
Note: finished The Poisoned Pilgrim: A Hangman's Daughter Tale by Oliver Pötzsch and gave it 3 stars

You recently tried to share a note or highlight from your Kindle. Something went wrong, please try again later.

Please note: This e-mail message was sent from a notification-only address that cannot accept incoming e-mail. Please do not reply to this message.


As a post script any highlights I share do show up on my amazon/kindle web page just not to Facebook and twitter.

I'll try to replicate this from my PW - I just have to dig out my Twitter and Facebook account details :o)

I can highlight and share from City of Bones Mortal Instruments but not from The Poisoned Pilgrim to facebook and twitter. My highlights from Poisoned Pilgrim and City of Bones show up on my amazon / kindle web page too. I've never had this happen before. I wonder if the publisher at this time has blocked it.

Good idea about publishers blocking sharing (I don't know whether such a feature exists). I just tried "end of book" posting from Antibiotic Resistance... - the note appeared on both FB and Twitter within seconds.

Please post the link to the book you have problem with, and someone might try posting highlights from it (I think there are several editions of the book - I see one that is labeled "UK Edition": The Poisoned Pilgrim: A Hangman's Daughter Tale (UK Edition) rather than The Poisoned Pilgrim: A Hangman's Daughter Tale).

Linda K says:
The Poisoned Pilgrim (US Edition) (A Hangman's Daughter Tale Book 4)

See if the link above works. It's the second book you listed but I understand that it's a translation. I understand this book did not get the good reviews that the first three Hangman's Daughter Tales. The translation may be the reason.

I thought of buying it, testing and returning, but this one seems to be a US-only edition. Perhaps an American will chime in.

Sorry for not being able to help.
