You need to report it via your Update tab, then.

You can try to convert it to pdf or Mobi (if you can get the Kindle App). Otherwise, nothing you can do except quit the book.

You may not have enough memory. You should try to download it to your PC.

You can try to convert the book to another format via the free Calibre App. Otherwise, nothing you can do except quitting the book via your Update tab.

1. Kindle/Mobi. That was the only one sent with the book for review. No any other choice/ options or format types was given!

2. Android phone (Nokia 2.4)

3. No.

4. I tried to download the Kindle app it linked me to Amazon and then when I tried, it says not available in my country. (Iam in Liberia).

5. When I click on the app to try to download, it gives me an error message and will not download.

6.Not Available in my Country.

7. I tried the free download on Amazon, it says " Not available in your country. I tried in the last 12 hours, trying other ways, even to purchase an app on Google store that will open Kindle books, still not successful and several update messages was sent because of this impasse!

I will be grateful if the problem is resolved quickly, iam new and I haven't been able to start any reviews

Thank you.

You can try to convert it to PDF via the free Calibre App. Otherwise, you need to quit the book via your Update tab, as MOBI files can only be read on Kindle/Kindle App.

You need the App to read it. If the tips don't help, you need to quit the book via your Update tab.
