Hello to all the members of the Kindle Club, as you're probably all aware we suffered a bit of a disaster in the book department over the weekend. It would be greatly appreciated if you could re-upload any books that you may have on your Kindles or computers and get the library back to the state it was in before this weekend.

Thank you.

Can someone explain this to me? I have a Kindle, have books on it, am willing to share... and there my knowledge stops.

Well at the moment Flouncy there's nothing to share, because someone deleted all the books, if we get it back up and running again then I'll give you a shout.

Ooh, is this a way to share books? I would be interested. The one thing I don't like about my kindle is the inability to pass on a good read.

I would also be interested in this if you manage to get the books back.

Also, I hope you get them all back. That must be very frustrating.

Where was the library then? How do people upload to it?

I'm interested, too.

Another one watching with interest

Also watching - I didn't think you could share books.

I've heard about e-reader 'libraries' in the states but don't think we have them here. I also heard there's a way to loan a kindle book for a couple of weeks, no idea how that works.

I'm happy to share any books that I have if somebody can let me know how to do it.

Hi, am also interested in this, have books on kindle and happy to share if someone can explain how it works?

AgathaFusty Mon 09-Jul-12 21:50:37

Oooh, I would like to share too....

Housewifefromheaven Mon 09-Jul-12 21:52:06

MikeLitoris Mon 09-Jul-12 21:54:21

I would be up for this too.

My kindle is relatively new so there's not much on there yet though.

minsmum Mon 09-Jul-12 22:05:30

me too. I have books I am happy to share if there is some way to do it.

mummylin2495 Mon 09-Jul-12 22:20:10

I also have books but have no idea how you get them back on the computer.and where do they get uploaded to ?

fortyeighthourdancemarathon Mon 09-Jul-12 22:22:41

I didn't know you could do that! Tell us more...

WandaDoff Mon 09-Jul-12 22:23:39

I have lots of ebooks Epub & mobi formats, if you would like me to share. I'm already in the group so I could just upload them if you want.

WandaDoff Mon 09-Jul-12 22:26:43

When I say I have lots I mean I have LOTS, & no it wasn't me that deleted the missing ones

mummylin2495 Mon 09-Jul-12 22:27:44

Do we have to join a group then to do this ?

MsIngaFewmarbles Mon 09-Jul-12 22:28:22

Me too. I have loads to share and loads I want too smile

Empusa Mon 09-Jul-12 22:28:33
