Please what exactly should I update about? The update tab takes asks me to confirm download of the book, or ask for support here. Error tab only defer the submission time. How do I quit the review?

You should confirm that you downloaded the book, and then choose to quit it via the "can't finish" option.

This is a really helpful guide. You should add that Calibre also can convert books from one format to another, though caution is needed regarding copyright infringements based on your region.

1. I believe it's in epub

2.LG Stylus

3. It opened but not the right way

4. I went on here to download it again and followed the file from there

5. When it downloads something always glitches with the formatting- sometimes it's one word on each page, sometimes one sentence or one paragraph at a time. There's been variation but it's never been a full, normal, page.

6. No error message

7. I tried reading from Nook

I would like to drop this book- technically I could read it one word or sentence at a time but I tried doing that and I just find it jarring and annoying

Once chosen, the format can't be changed. You need to quit the book via your Update tab.

I selected I would download the book for kindle, however, it is not giving me the option to download the book for free with my kindle unlimited subscription. It also had the option for pdf, but it won't allow me to go back and change my selection. The book is Invisible Me by H. M. Irwing.

You need to join the KU program for that, and only USA citizens can join it. If you can't get it, you need to quit the book via your Update tab.

Latest Review: The Biblical Clock by Daniel Friedmann and Dania Sheldon

Post by CaptainPhoton » 29 Mar 2019, 07:36

When trying to access the book Arsenic and Old Men: A Mitch and Al Mystery, in the Kindle Unlimited format, I was able to locate the book on Kindle, but it isn't offered in Kindle Unlimited. I attempted to locate it several times, with the same result.

I tried opening it using the Kindle free reading application for Windows 10. I have opened many titles from Kindle Unlimited on this desktop that I am and was using.

I typically click on the book's cover and am provided with the various options of purchasing the book. This book does not appear to have a free Kindle Unlimited version, although it does have a paid Kindle version.

I did not get an error message, just no selection choice of Kindle Unlimited format.

I did read the Top Tips.

Thank you for your help. I am excited to begin my review.

As stated on your Review Team Page, once chosen, the format can't be changed. If you can't read the book, you need to quit it via your Update tab.
