I just selected the book Farmer Beau's Farm to read and review. Its supposed to be via Kindle Instant Gift but when I click the link to take me to Amazon to download it, nothing happens. This comes up at the bottom of the screen:

Please help!

I'm just simple not able to, because I have an extremely old mode kindle, so it didn't come with a usb port ( t least to my knowledge). I just need a lot of updating on my devices.

You can't download the book directly to your kindle. You need to download it to your PC and then to the kindle. You can read it on your cell or PC, if you can't move it to the kindle.

I tried all three options but my computer won't download it, and my phone won't open it. My phone is a LG Aristo, and I get the message saying file type is not supported. I have never tried opening a .mobi file before.

I downloaded the book but all the text are fizzled together, no space. I have used two 4 PDF viewers for it, it's the same. I don't understand.

It’s saying I chose to use my Amazon gift card on my account and I didn’t.
Don’t know what step I should take now

When I click on the link, it only takes me to a sample, not the whole book. Am I supposed to review the sample?

Hello,

I selected a book to review, but cannot access it because the Amazon page says the giveaway ended in March. I emailed the support team yesterday morning, but have not gotten a reply. I emailed again a few minutes ago just in case the first one was not received.

Latest Review: Becoming the Dragon by Alex Sapegin

Post by CTookie » 14 May 2018, 18:10

Hey there,

Similar issue to the last post by KristyKhem. I'm attempting to download a Kindle copy of Becoming the Dragon by Alex Sapegin, but the Amazon Giveaway page reports that the giveaway closed May 14th, 3:26PM PDT.

As per the instructions on my RT page, I'm therefore explaining that here.

Thanks for your help!
