Dawgluver and vitauta, I understand the paralytic phobia, but truly, the librarians are the most patient people around and its as simple as point, click, plug in the Kindle and drag it to documents.

alix, bless you, little one."drag"? who knows, never say never. you got me reading pillars of the earth and THAT took overcoming some resistance. thank you for that one, btw....

vitauta, you can do it! If you are in the US, you might just need to point and click and plug in the Kindle. Really. Would I lie?

Honestly, if you can navigate THIS site and post as effectively as you do, there is nothing stopping you from borrowing library books on your Kindle. Wait a sec, you have a Nook right? Same deal.

Alix is Canadian, Vit. Bet she cheered for the Edmonton Eskimos or the Calgary Stampeders! Otherwise she would need a visa and a green card....

have any of you kindlers encountered a problem with "opening" any of your kindle books? i have been getting a message indicating "book cannot be opened...delete title from your device". first time it happened, about one month ago, five of my ebooks could not be opened. they were redownloaded for me by a tech at amazon. today, the problem recurred. this time, amazon chose to refund the purchase price of the two books involved. no more kindle books for me....

Reboot your router. Just unplug the modem for 30 seconds, disconnect the router then plug in modem, wait for all the lights but the last one, then plug in the router. When the lights are all lit, give it another try.
