Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! 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.

The Kindle Unlimited option is for those who have it anyway.

If you do not/can not use this option, you should edit your preferences to reflect that. :tiphat:
If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

Hello!
I'm having trouble downloading books from Amazon. I tried downloading two different books, but I just won't find the download link on Amazon.

I don't know if I'm the one not doing it right, or if the issue is with the books.

I'll like to get help on this please. Its my first review.

You download the review books from your Review Team Page, not from Amazon or the Shelf.
