    New user with a similar problem: I just downloaded a new Kindle ebook called "Start" onto my Galaxy Note 2, and used a Play Store app called File Manager to move it into the following location on my phone:

    /storage/sdcard0/kindle/start_ebook_kindle.txt

    Then, when I open my Kindle app, the book still doesn't show. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    That's because the Android Kindle app does not read .txt format file. I think the real Kindle does, but not the Kindle app. You will have to convert the .txt into .mobi format. You can find free tools online by searching for "convert txt into mobi".

    There is a new update on the android Kindle app just came out. It now has a category "doc". I think .txt file may now show up under "doc", but I haven't tried it yet. But it is how it works on a regular kindle. mobi files show up under "book" and .txt files show up under "doc". If that works, you don't have to convert your files to mobi.

    There's an app called Calibre Companion on the Google Play Store that will connect your device wirelessly to Calibre using your WiFi network. I highly recommend it! You can get more information about it on the Calibre forum at MobiRead (Calibre Companion Android App: Information, Change Log, and FAQ - MobileRead Forums)

    I got that update today. I can't figure out how to get it to retain the setting to only show what's on my Note. Now every time I open it, it shows every book I ever purchased. What a pain, if you touch the wrong one while strolling through the wheel it reinstalls it. I haven't been able to find a way to get the older version back.

    Click the menu button located at upper left corner. Pick On Device and it will show you what's on your Note II. Problem is that you have to do it every time you got back to the main menu from a book. It seems that Amazon wants you to look at their Home page so you will see the suggested books down below for you to buy. BTW, my home page has like Sci Fi books (mine), kids books (my son's), and books with half naked guys and girls (romance novels for my wife)!

    I never did find a way to retain that On Device setting, but I did figure that if you long press a book one of the popup options is to remove from carousel.

    I had a battle on Friday with getting my books from iMac to Galaxy Note 3, and the comments here were useful - but finally I uploaded book in epub to Google Playbooks. Almost instant transfer to the Note 3, and very easy to read. I can now retire my Kindle 1
