I tried to launch my Kindle app today to read a book, but it was no longer showing up on the list of apps on my device, nor in the cloud. I was able to launch a book I had started a while back that was still on the carousel, and it opened, but I can't get to the home page to see the rest of my books. I restarted the Fire to see if that would help, but no luck. Has anyone had this happen? I was going to reinstall the app, but it's not in the app store. Funny, the Nook app launches fine on the Fire! Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm not quite clear on what you're doing. You don't need to launch an app to read your Kindle books. Just tap on 'Books', then tap 'Device' to see downloaded books, or 'Cloud' to see books in your account. Is that not working? If you're seeing your Carousel, that is your Home page.

The fire comes with the kindle app so there lies a suspicion about your whole story. I suggest calling amazon customer support. If you're on the up and up you'll give them a call.

Why do you want to use a Kindle reader app on a Fire?

The Kindle Reader apps aren't in the app store, they're here:

Thanks, Ann. I got accustomed to using the shortcut out of habit,because that's what I do on my other devices. I didn't even think about going to Books. Duh!

What shortcut? There is no shortcut (icon) to the reading app unless you inadvertently installed the Kindle for Android app onto your Fire, thus overwriting the integrated K4A app on the Fire used to read books.

I was messing with "Send to Kindle" in My Computer, and sent a couple of images. They showed up in a few seconds on my iPod Touch in my Kindle app, but never showed up on my Fire. I have an icon for "Amazon Kindle" on my Fire, so I clicked it to see if it would bring up the images. I'm pretty sure that's also how I got to books before, but maybe not. It's been a few months since I've read any books on it, and I use so many gadgets that I may have them mixed up. I don't use the carousel as my default launcher, so I wanted to use the shortcut to get to all of that.
