Well, the 1.10.1 Kindle 4PC update fixed the Most Recent Sort bug introduced in the 1.10 update. It has not--on first review--fixed the other bug introduced in the 1.10 update: It still uses the generic blue cover thumbnail instead of a thumbnail generated from the book's cover for mobi files (they all showed up correctly in the pre-1.10 version).

Have many books on my Kindle Fire, how do I get them on my Kindle for Mac?
Posted on Jul 7, 2012 11:04:07 AM PDT
Whenever you purchase Kindle content from Amazon.com, we store it for you inside of your account so that it's accessible from your devices. Once you install and register the Kindle for Mac app, you will be able to see those items in the Archived Items section of the app.
I found this great resource in our Help Pages that can guide you through this process also: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/?nodeId=200443830download
I hope this information helps!

If I buy a kindle book does it have ability to read it aloud without doing anything extra? I have kindle touch.
Can it be audible one time and text only next time

It does not work even if I do what the Help Pages say. It worked one year ago but not anymore. Why? I have the kindle app for iMac, iPad and iPhone.

@Jerry - If the publisher has not disabled text-to-speech for a particular book, your Touch can read it aloud. You can listen or read, or both.
Instructions are here - http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_200728400_tts?nodeId=200729910#tts

I am not sure why, but now everything is ok!

I am also on a iPad and want to remove a public domain book. It is on my iPad but does not show up in my account on Amazon on my computer. Any one have ideas on how to remove it?
In reply to an earlier post on Jul 7, 2012 9:15:17 PM PDT
this thread is about kindle for pc, which doesn't do text to speech. But for your question. If the book has text to speech enabled, and you are using your touch, yes, you can listen to it or read it.

What are the changes? It is not available in Mac App Store

I updated my Kindle for PC this week as was suggested when I opened my Kindle. My problem is, that now my Kindle will NOT download the books with the most recent books first, making it so that I have go thru my emails and search all the books by titles to put in their proper files. This is a nuisance, and wondered how I can correct this. I have rebooted computer and keep "syncing" but it will NOT put the books in order by recent. Thank you for taking time with this problem.

I'm having trouble downloading to both my Kindles...Basic unit & Kindle Fire. I have purchased titles and tried to download numerous times, but nothing happens. When I attempt to download thru my USB, it tells me the items have been send to the device, but nothing shows up on my the units. I'm at a loss to know what to do. In the past I've had no problems.
In reply to an earlier post on Jul 9, 2012 9:48:00 PM PDT
I can understand that the kindle unit needs wifi to download books/ large files.
if PC is connected to internet (wireless broadband), why does it need wifi for download.
My journals do not download to PC, but books (small ones) do.
