Why don't book covers appear on my carrousel?

Occasionally, when I download 5-6 free works to my Kindle Fire, their covers/dust jackets appear in the Books/Device section, but not in the Carrousel. This occurs only when I order a bunch of works and not every time. The Carrousel displaces only a blank cover. I haven't seen any discusssion of this elsewhere. Any suggestions? --DB

Haven't had the experience, probably because I don't think I've ever ordered more than one book at a time. But I suspect that if you sync the device, you'll see the covers after awhile.

The same thing happened to me a few weeks ago, and it fixed itself after a day or so.

To insert a product link use the format: [[ASIN:ASIN product-title]] (What's this?)

This may or not be the reason this happens to you, but each e-title has a certain number of devices that you can have that title on, at the same time (devices registered to the SAME Ammy account). A LOT of the books, it's 6 simultaneously. So I can buy Hunger Games, and I can have it on my device, my spouse can, 3 kids, and grandma, all reading it at the same time.

HOWEVER, some titles only allow 1 or 2 devices at a time. If you sent that book to your Cloud Reader, or to PC, or to another Kindle when you clicked "buy", you may not be able to download that title to your Fire until you "remove from device" on whatever else you have that title on.

This happened to me w/Kindle Fire (1st ed) & it was reeeeeally annoying.
There were way too many books not showing covers & I had to click in each one to see what book it was.
Today I tryed SYNC'ing. Nope. Nothing.
Then I just turned it off this morning (around 12:30p) - as in full SHUT DOWN mode - for a few hours (just turned it back on now at 7p) & EVERY book has a cover now.
Eventually the thing probably just needs a nap to reboot & start functioning again properly...kinda like me!

Good luck, Kindle peeps :)
