Yeah.. After almost a year of use, I go to check out some books for the kids. My public library end worked fine. I click on get book and it told me that I did not have a Kindle Registered.
I called customer service and they said that "Yes, you were able to check out some books but that was due to a systems glitch that was now fixed". I really don't know who these "Geo-Nazis" are trying to protect. I've more than once bought a book I liked or a similar one to that book which I borrowed.
We've got to test where the block is coming from. Any of you guys with a US ip Address or a trusted person in the states, please try to check out a book and then get it into your kindle. They were like "Blah Blah Blah" and "We're sorry" and the like until I showed them this link. http://taipei.lib.overdrive.com/EE7AA2B2-4354-4DDF-AFFA-1031ABB91B8F/10/513/en/Default.htm
Then the rep took some notice. I told him that I really like the Kindle Reader and the way it plays Audible Books too, but I don't need two readers. Let's quietly find a work around to this problem. If not, let's all buy Epub readers and copy this page to Amazon. I'm going to try to enroll in the library on Monday.
My US library has both books, Epub and Kindle. Almost every book is available in both flavors so Amazon doesn't really have an advantage on the number of titles. I hate it when they fix a glitch that never gave anyone any trouble.
PS: I was so in love with my Kindle that I thought about a compromise. Joining Amazon Prime. They told me that it is not for overseas residents. So, if you were using that, you probably are blocked too.
