New to Kindle. I purchased a Kindle book but can't get it to show up on Kindle. It shows up on my computer under Manage Kindle Account. When I click on Actions it doesn't give me the option to download if I try to move it from the computer to the Kindle.

Have you read the "trouble shooting" part of your users guide? Do that first and do what they suggest...if that doesn't work notify amazon via "live chat"....that should solve your problem...

Hi Badel,

While on your "Manage my Kindle" page, if you click or hover your mouse over the "Action" button to the right sie of the title, do you see "Deliver to my..." as an option? If so, then click that and follow the directions; usually it has you pick your device you want the book delivered to.

Also, you did not say WHICH Kindle you have. If one of the Fires, look under "Books" then the Cloud tab; it might be there. If an e-ink Kindle, check to see if it is in your Archives. Do a "Sync" if it isn't there.

Thanks! I had not put in a password when I registered so it never registered me. I thought the password was optional but it is obviously not. Thanks to all for your quick response and help!
