Dumb question

Is there anyway to subscribe to the Amazon Kindle Blog so it downloads automatically to your Kindle (like other blogs you can subscribe too)?

I see where you can subscribe to Amazon Daily but the Kindle Blog is more what I would be looking for in terms of content for my Kindle.

If you hit this link at the top of the page

OH... you can't subscribe to the Kindle blog on the Kindle. I've gotta admit that is pretty lame. But, is kindle blog a subset of Amazon daily?

No, I've scrolled through the Amazon Daily blogs and found them to be a waste of time and never seen the articles on the kindle or its content...so its not automatically part of it...but I now see where you can add the Kindle blog to your Amazon Daily (thanks grandma).

It does seems lame that you can't subscribe to it on its own

Oh...I just found the "Customize Your Amazon Daily" link...so I added the Kindle blog and removed all the others. Fingers crossed...

(Unlike the kindle bog, the Sony technology blog is automatically added to Amazon daily )

Ok... I must be blind. I go to Customize Amazon Daily but I don't see the Kindle blog as a listed topic?

No...its not you.

You have to go to the Kindle blog itself (link above) and select the "« Go to Amazon Kindle's full Amazon Blog" link and then choose the option to add it to you Amazon Daily.

You are right, it doesn't appear on the customize topics page.

You would think Amazon would make it easier for Kindle users to get the Kindle blog automatically

I still need to see if it works.

Ah... bully for you. I did it... but it still doesn't show in the Amazon Daily customize list. I guess I am to take it on faith that it is included?

No, I will not laugh. Boston, can you email Kindle support and ask them how to do it? There has to be an easy way......

While I "supposedly" added the Kindle blog to my Amazon daily... I do not subscribe to amazon daily.

I subscribe to the Kindle blog on my PC RSS reader.

I get the Kindle blog on my PC fine as well. I thought it might be nice to have it delivered to my mother's Kindle as she won't be searching this type of info out on her PC.

Maybe I'll get around to asking Amazon support but am lazy about doing stuff like that in general...its easier to post here
