Kindle App Issues
For students trying to download A History of Western Society, 11th Edition for Global 2 Honors and AP Euro: The regular Kindle reading app does not work. You need to download the Kindle for PC version. Please visit www.amazon.com/kindleforpc and follow the steps. Be mindful that this must be completed at home, as the school network blocks Amazon and other shopping websites.
Once downloaded, Kindle for PC should recognize your Amazon purchase and download the text. Please see Mr. C. Lauber if the problem persists.
