    It is quite confusing. I may get a Kindle through a third party in the U.S. but Amazon will not deliver books via wireless. Now, can I download to my computer via Internet all the books and magazines that I want from Amazom? Will there be any delivery charges for books and magazines when downloading via Internet? Finally, what is the wisdom in not supplying Kindle directly to Pakistan, which is the sixth largest country in the world (with 180 million population), seventh nuclear power, with English compulsory for every student?

  2. We imagine that the Amazon website wouldn’t let you purchase Kindle books from your locale as they have in the past. Your options as we understand them, from our unsupported countries guide:

    This leaves you with two choices. You could purchase your books elsewhere, and use a program such as Calibre to easily upload them to the Kindle. The other choice is to buy Amazon gift vouchers (using your credit card) then use the vouchers to pay for the books.

    As for why they pick and choose certain countries to effectively blacklist, you really have to wonder, as they don’t clearly state any reason that we can see.
    Let us know how you go!
