Directions for international readers on how to get Kindle World books
EMILY KIRKPATRICK · TUESDAY, JULY 5, 2016
INTERNATIONAL READERS can buy Kindle Worlds titles from the KindleWorlds US site only. Unfortunately, that means that readers using Amazon UK, CA, and AU are going to have to be a little creative and tenacious to get a hold of a copy. This is a method one of my author friends came up with, tested, and confirmed:
–Log into your Amazon UK, CA, or AU account.–Add a United States address to your list of one-click addresses. You could try a hotel address or other business address you find online. The program is only concerned with confirming it is a legit address, not your address.
–Go to Manage Your Content & Devices, and under Country settings, change your location to US. Amazon will ask you to select an address. Select the US address you added to your one-click addresses.
–Now you can click on the Amazon US link, buy the book, and it will download onto your designated device.
–Once the book is downloaded, go back through the process changing everything back to your home country.
Another reader has mentioned that they had more than one device they could read kindle books on. They registered one using a .com address and can get books from Amazon US this way.
There are also free kindle apps for your computer, phones, tables, iPods, etc on Amazon. Set up a free email account to use for Amazon US (hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc) Go here: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_10?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=kindle%20app&sprefix=kindle%20app%2Caps%2C222
Find the app you want for your device and download.
