I fired up my Kindle this morning to check email and there it was - WoT on Kindle. Now I can highlight, search….. oh wait…. Nnnnoooooooooo.
I posted the following review on Amazon:
The hardcover gets 5 stars - lets be very clear - this review refers ONLY to the Kindle Edition and not to WoT content overall:
1. not searchable
2 can not enlarge type or enlarge the page - this makes the book unreadable even with Dalish eyes
3. can not highlight, make notes in the book, look up words, etc
4. only viewable as portrait
Bottom line: NO KINDLE FEATURES are available with this book - 0, zip, nada, none - rien four our Orlesian friends.
I bought this book on Kindle to use the features. I have the hard copy. I went through the Kindle entry on Amazon and found nothing warning me that no Kindle features worked on this book. If I had been warned I wouldn’t have purchased it. It did warn that it was only available on Kindle and not the PC reader, but I thought that’s OK.
I feel quite scammed. If Kindle features will not be available on a book the entry should say so to allow the buyer to make an INFORMED decision. Shame on you Amazon. Shame.
When you first open the book - a pop up will instruct you on how to use Kindle Frame reader (for comics) -
don’t get excited - it doesn’t work either.
CORRECTION: Actually it does - double tap sharply to enlarge a teeny tiny section then double tap the enlargement to close it. It’s not like the magnifier - you can’t move it around the page. double tap - view - double tap; rinse and repeat as you go through the page & the book. Still no highlights, notes, bookmarks, searches. But at least you can read the print - albeit in teeny tiny increments.
As Wynne STILL might say: This is so annoying!
