I downloaded the Amazon Kindle (free) app. I tried searching for it but it doesn't exist. Can I read a different book that is on the Kindle app already, then submit review of it, instead? I really want to read the Kindle one I downloaded instead if it's alright.

@Phronesis It sounds like the file you have is not corrupt. I have sent you a PM to fix the issue.

I generally download pdf if that's an option, otherwise mobi and open in ADE. If neither of those are options, then I'll use the zamzar conversion tool to convert them to pdf.
