I’ve been reading your blog for a long time, mostly lurking in the shadows. I’m also a major reader, but until now have done that on the kindle applications as opposed to an actual kindle. Well, I finally took the plunge and bought one. It may just be the most awesome thing I’ve ever purchased. A device meant just for books makes my heart sing a little. Ok, maybe a lot.
But anyway… I have a couple of random questions about it that google has not solved, and I thought you might have an answer, or know someone who would. Firstly, the goodreads icon on my home screen does not work. I’m guessing goodreads is not connected somehow. However, when I look at my wishlist it also shows my to read shelf on goodreads, so it at least recognizes it somehow. Not really sure what’s going on there.
Secondly, when I pull up any book in the kindle store it will not let me put it on my wishlist. Can you not add things to a wishlist from kindle? I can view my wishlist and buy things off of it, but adding seems impossible.
If you have any ideas that would be fabulous.
MelliMay: High five for drinking the Kindle kool-aid! I couldn’t live without mine, either. I think I remember a setting where you turn on/off access to Goodreads. I think there’s also a place to monkey with your Kindle wish list from the Amazon website when using a computer. I hope this helps!
Jeannie: There might be a separate wishlist for kindle books. Try starting a new list – I know that I (somehow or other) have a wishlist for Amazon products (other than kindle books). On your Amazon drop down window (under “Your Account”) there is a heading for “Your Lists”. You can try making a new list with a new name. If you still have problems, call or email customer service, they have been a big help to me in the past. Good luck! I love my kindle too, I would go into withdrawal if something happened to it.
