1) Open a new account on Amazon.com using your U.S address, make sure your country is specified as U.S
2) Download kindle pc/mac app for your computer.
3) I use a hide ip program so as my ip show as U.S and download to my computer and then transfer to my kindle with usb
Some folks don't bother with the hide ip but I rather be as discrete as possible.
Thanks for the tip! I'm hoping a new account won't be necessary, as my account already has a US address, but has been accessed by my Icelandic IP. I however told amazon that I was vacationing so all should be in order, hopefully, when I use a proxy. If it doesn't work I'll be trying out your method. Some people also suggest buying a gift card and not using your credit card, but the card seems to work for some regardless of country.
