Richard:
You could just change the email address on your kindle to the misspelled address you submitted to amazon.

Yes... but only if the typo address is actually available to be claimed. In some cases, that might be a really good solution.

At the price we pay for a base package, we should be able to read it anywhere we like. I don't give away, lend out or share anything. But I'm not able to sit in a chair for extended periods and need to be able to read in bed.

If Faithlife set limits, I'll respect them, of course. But I don't get a sense that I should be tiptoeing around about putting logos resources on my Kindle.

Has Logos put a cap on how many books can be sent to kindle? Or did they remove this feature in the latest update, Because I am unable to send books anymore. I thought perhaps it was just that particular resource, but then I surveyed a dozen others, all with no ability to send to kindle. I have used this feature quite a few times so I know how it works, unless they have changed the procedure for sending each book. Any help would be great, this has been such a wonderful feature that has greatly enhanced the usability of my Logos library (and I just bought several books for a class next semester with the express intention of reading them on my kindle, so I am hoping there is a fix for this.)

No and No.

Which resources? Have you tried restarting your computer?

Well I restarted the computer and that seems to have taken care of it. maybe I was clicking only on resources that weren't available to send to kindle. The particular one I wanted was

Hays, J. Daniel. Message of the Prophets: A Survey of the Prophetic and Apocalyptic Books of the Old Testament. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2010.

But flipping through this it seems to have a lot of pictures so maybe it is too hard to format in kindle.

Whatever the case, thanks for the help, glad to see this feature is still working.

Two things:

  • Amazon has a limit on the file size that can be sent. If the book would be larger than Kindle allows, the book isn't "kindle enabled."
  • Due to publisher restrictions, MOST books that are "mobile enabled" are "kindle enabled," but not all.
  • If a book isn't "mobile enabled," it isn't "kindle enabled."

I have been searching  for instructions on how to export a book to kindle, but cannot find anything.  I have done it in the past but can't remember now how I did it :(

Can you point me to the instructions somewhere?  Thanks

Will this work with an Amazon.ca account (i.e. Canadian Amazon account)? If so, can I link both my .com and .ca addresses with my Logos account?

The answer to your first question is "yes". The answer to your second depends on whether you have the same email address registered at both stores. If so, Amazon treats the two accounts as if they were one account, and you'll have no problems. If not, you'll have to choose which account you'll want to link to Logos.

Any plans to make books on Logos accessible to Kobo e-reader devices?

probably not. First, kobo is very small market in the US. Second, the "send to kindle" depends upon a feature by kindle. Does kobo have the same?

I am able to send selected books to my Kindle Account fine. They all show as Documents on my various devices as expected. However, when looking in the Documents folder on my IPod or iPad it displays the expected book cover but not so on my Android devices. I never see the book cover, instead I get only a generic document cover. Other than that it works fine for all potable devices. Any ideas?

Probably a limitation or bug on the Android App... 

Question though: Why are you using send to kindle to send books to the kindle app on Android? Why not use one of the many FL apps?

It's a known (and very annoying) issue with Kindle. In fact the only place it works correctly is the iOS app. It shows a generic cover on 'proper' Kindles, too.

Thanks Mark. It's a relief to know its not due to Operator Ear Space. I do enough of that.

I use Send-to-Kindle only from my Desktop, I sometimes read them on my iPad, Galaxy Note 4, etc. when I'm not at home.

Alabama was wondering why you don't use one of the Faithlife apps on those mobile devices as opposed to the Send-to-Kindle route.

With one of the Faithlife apps they would be much more integrated with your desktop - synchronising notes / highlights / position in the book etc
