2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointment, 19 Jan 2011

This review is from: Amazon.co.uk Email Gift Card (Ecard Gift Certificate)
My brother gave me a gift voucher for amazon for christmas and suggested three books for my kindle, so I went to get them and discovered that if your kindle is registered in the US which mine is, you can't buy books on Amazon.co.uk, and I assume that similarly if your kindle is registered in the UK, you will not be able to buy them on Amazon.com. Now the list is far better on Amazon.com, but the books I wanted, and my brother wanted me to have were only available on Amazon.co.uk. So if I wanted them I had to change the registration of my kindle, but that would have meant a lesser choice on Amazon.co.uk.

If I wanted to buy a hard copy book from the UK on Amazon - no problem, there is no excuse for Amazon not allowing Kindle owners to buy a wireless book from the US site or the UK site, in fact because they are wireless and are supposedly able to be downloaded from anywhere, it is flipping insane!!

So consequently I was dissapointed, and I think rightly so. Instead I bought four leaf rakes!! Ah well!! Amazon, get it sorted as you are conning your buyers right now.
