A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Hi all,
I am from Belgium and was wonderingen if you guys ever won or bought an Amazon gift voucher? I am not able to leave a review untill I pay to read a book. But no payment works for me...
I am hoping that I can buy a voucher and that it will work!
Thanks for posting about the possibility of a book not able to download when outside the US. Sucks a bit... Can't start reviewing as the one book I wanted to review had been removed. The others' are not really in my interest category.
Talk soon!

Hello and welcome! I live in Austria and while I had one Kindle Gift review book that worked, I also wanted to review one that didn't. Especially after reading about others' similar experiences (they related that filling in the country on the Amazon profile did not work, for example), I avoid books that are only available in the Kindle Gift format. Most are .pdf anyway?
My main Amazon account is on amazon.de; gift vouchers from amazon.com don't work at all. I opened an account on amazon.com with a different email address and have been able to buy things with the vouchers. I guess it might even be possible to get Kindle books and read them in the reading app or cloud reader? Otherwise, I just have to wait for things to be shipped from the States! Good luck.
