Kindle First: Amazon wants to use you as a free beta tester :)

Quote:
Here’s how Kindle First works:
  • Each month, Amazon Publishing editors select several titles from Kindle’s most popular categories a month ahead of their official publication date, adding a note of recommendation and a behind-the-scenes look at the stories and the authors.
  • Customers can choose one of the featured books each month for $1.99. Prime members can make their selection for free – adding yet another benefit of Prime membership.
  • Customers can receive a monthly email alerting them of new Kindle First selections. Signup is free and there is no purchase obligation.
  • Customers can visit the Kindle store on amazon.com or their Kindle device to select their book. All Kindle First books become part of your permanent Kindle library and can be read on any Kindle device and Kindle free reading apps.

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. I'll have to check it out.

In the last few days we've had Kindle Matchbook, Kindle First, Day One, Amazon Smile, and I think also lightning deals for ebooks? They are throwing EVERYTHING at the wall right now!

Be careful, it did say you couldn't return them if you get them for free.

You can't transfer via USB, but you can "Loan this book to anyone you choose."

There is always a catch isn't there. Well I don't have Amazon Prime so I'd be good to go there.

This doesn't appear to be true, at least not at this time. I bought Things We Set on Fire for $0.00, and I was able to download it from my Manage Your Kindle page.

In the event that option goes away, I just added the book to my calibre library in a transfer from my Kindle.

For Win8.1 users, make sure you download the Kindle For PC app - the Win7/Vista version. That one will set up the My Kindle Library in your Documents folder, just like it always was, and you'll be able to access your books if you need to run them through Calibre. Otherwise if you click on the Win8 version it only lets you download that app for the Metro screens. If you do that, then you don't have access to the whole book files - they are hidden as fragment files in:

C:\Users\(Your Name)\AppData\Local\Packages\AMZNMobileLLC.Kindlef orWindows8_....\LocalState\cache

I have no idea how you would re-assemble them if you needed to convert them into an epub for another of your ereaders.

You have to unhide the "Hidden Files" in order to see the AppData Folders.

I'd also recommend archiving that Kindle installation file for future use in case it disappears once MS stops supporting Win7.

Why do you think you can't transfer via USB? Did it say that somewhere? I couldn't find that stated in the terms anywhere.

Circa 2030.
And there will still be hordes of small businesses using it in 2050.

Actually, Win7 SP 1 mainstream support ends in Jan 2015, while its extended support ends in Jan 2020.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...ucts/lifecycle

I sincerely doubt that anyone will be using Win7 in 2050 - it's just not that perfect a product to overcome what will surely be leaps in technology by that point in time.

No rational person.
But there are people running WordPerfect for DOS on 286's out there.
Some of them at the BPHs, too.
Don't underestimate people's aversion to switch paradigms.
