Interesting and Useful Amazon Links

Amazon makes a lot of information available online. However, it isn’t always in an obvious place, especially when you are in a hurry. I’ll update this post from time to time, but I thought it was good to get this in one place. If it says “login required”, it’s a “personal” part of Amazon.  If you are already logged into Amazon, it may not ask you.  (login required)

This is the location to see the notes you’ve made in your Kindle books online. You can get to your Reading List, Manage Your Kindle, and Kindle Support.

Manage Your Kindle  (login required)

Register, change your authorized e-mail addresses, send your orders to your computer (or a Kindle)…this is the main Amazon management page.

Kindle Support page
Get to the User’s Guides, search the official help information, and so on.

Kindle customer service q and a 
(a forum where “…Customer Service will make weekly posts that answer the most common customer questions.”)

Amazon Universal Wishlist button
Get the Amazon Universal Wishlist button from Amazon, so you can put Kindle books (and things from non-Amazon websites) on your wishlist.

Search through Listmania!

Those are lists of Amazon products made by customers.

Amazon Easy to Remember Pages

These are ones where Amazon has created an easy address. They may be the same as some of the others in this post, but I thought I’d group them together. (how to transfer files to your Kindle using a cable instead of wirelessly) (about public library lending) (about lending Kindle books to people not on your account)

E-mail addresses: (Digital Text Platform help) (Jeff Bezos)

I’ll update this from time to time.  Let me know if you have more Amazon links you think I should add! Also, these links aren’t always stable…if you try one and it doesn’t work, I’d appreciate knowing that as well.
