Kindle Reset Instructions

I am going to set this message up to go out monthly for each of my blogs: if you’ve seen it before and know what I’m talking about, or if you’re just plain ‘ole tired of seeing it don’t worry – I’ll be back with a new post soon.

Don’t have a Kindle? Well, you should get one! They range in price from $79 – $379 depending upon the number of bells and whistles you get. You can click here to give the kind of Kindle I use a look.

There seems to be a Kindle problem for a lot of folks – that is, what do you need to do if (a) this or any other blog or newspaper all of a sudden stops updating each day on the Kindle, and (b) you can see the blog or newspaper post in the to be downloaded list of the “Manage Your Kindle” section of the Amazon website and for some unexplained reason it doesn’t show up on your Kindle..

You will need to write this down, or try to memorize it, because if it happens to you I’m willing to bet you won’t remember unless you’ve reset your Kindle a few times!

If you would like to print this out, click here to read my post on the Free Kindle Books Plus a Few Other Tips blog to how to capture screen shots on your Kindle.

If this happens to you, you will need to reboot your Kindle. Here is how you do it:

  1. Click the “Home” button to get back to your home screen.
  2. Click the “Menu” button, and select “Settings.”
  3. You will see several options, but “reboot” is not one of those options. Press the “Menu” button again.
  4. You will have several options, but choose and click the “Restart” button.

Once you do that, it will take about 1-2 minutes to reboot. Make sure your wireless is on, and the Kindle will go look in the Amazon store to see what is pending to be downloaded and viola! You should be back in business. If you ever need to restart your Kindle, I hope this helps!

Thank You Plus a Kindle Deal

This is a post with a few random topics…

The Thanksgiving Kindle Challenge

I just wanted to say thank you for each of you who participated in this year’s second annual Thanksgiving Kindle Challenge (click here or type in http://bit.ly/vxDovS into your computer’s web browser to read the original post).  Thanks to your generosity, collectively we were able to donate $291.60 to the Salvation Army’s Christmas Kettle Campaign which will help feed and clothe folks who need it, as well as provide toys to lots of children.

If you did not participate, that’s ok – but I hope you consider helping out a local charity of your choice!

Amazon’s Black Friday Deals

Many people, including my wife, think I know what Amazon’s Black Friday Deals are going to be in advance.  The truth is, I don’t – but looking at the Amazon website there are a lot of deals there that change every hour.  You have just as much information as I do if you look at the Amazon page: they tell you what the next deal is going to be, so please bookmark this link: http://amzn.to/amazonbfriday

Kindle DX On Sale

The Kindle DX is on sale for just $259 through November 28, which is a savings of $120.  You can check out the deal if you click here or type in http://amzn.to/e86Rrv into your computer’s web browser.

That’s all for now.  We’re about to get back on the road to head back to Houston – I hope everyone has a great weekend!
