Amazon announced today that Kindle owners around the world can finally download English-Language books by Random House that were previously available only to U.S. customers. Okay, the international community got their Christmas gift, where's ours? LOL! Just kidding.
' Until now, Random House English-language books, such as Dan Brown's "The Lost Symbol," were only available to Kindle customers living in the United States. Today, Amazon announced that it is adding to its international Kindle Stores books published by all of Random House's English-language publishing divisions.
These titles will be available in the Kindle Store for download in any area where Random House has the digital rights, such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
... Other popular English-language titles that are now available to download in any area where those digital rights are available include Danielle Steel's "A Good Woman" and Markus Zusak's "The Book Thief."
UPDATE - As of the morning of Dec 24, the programmers don't seem to have enabled the international buying feature yet on the Random House books, as reported by a UK and a Canadian person. Give it a couple of days, or call Customer Service at 866-321-8851 but it's a holiday for many. They were replying to people today on the Stephen King book so are on duty but I'm leaving the house. Good luck, all. 4:04pm on 12/24. Below are ways to Share this post if you'd like others to see it.
-- The Send to Kindle button works well only on Firefox currently.
