Shop in the Kindle Store anytime, anywhere

The Kindle Store offers a wide selection of Kindle books, Kindle Singles (novella-length
narratives), newspapers, magazines and blogs. To access the store, tap the top of the screen
to display the toolbars, then tap the Shopping Basket button. You can also select Shop in
Kindle Store from some menus.

To navigate within the Kindle Store, simply tap on any area of interest, then swipe left and
right or up and down to move around pages and lists. You can search for a title, browse by
category, check out the latest bestsellers, or view recommendations personalised just for
you. The Kindle Store lets you see details about titles, read customer reviews and even
download book samples.

When you're ready to make a purchase, the Kindle Store uses your Amazon 1-Click payment
method securely. After you order, the Amazon Whispernet service delivers the item directly
to your Kindle via your wireless connection. Books are downloaded to your Kindle
immediately, generally in less than 60 seconds. The download progress will be displayed
below the book’s cover or title on the Home screen indicating the download status. A New
banner on the book indicates when the book is ready to be opened. Newspapers, magazines
and blogs are sent to your device as soon as they're published — often even before they're
available in print. If your Kindle is in Aeroplane Mode when a new issue of a periodical
becomes available, the issue will be delivered automatically the next time you have a
wireless connection.

Whispersync synchronises your Kindle device so that purchases and book samples
downloaded in Kindle apps or on other Kindle devices registered with your account are
always available to you. This enables you to read a few pages using the Kindle application on
your iPhone, iPad or Android device and then pick up exactly where you left off when you
return to your Kindle device. For more information, see
