Hi All!

I own a Nook so I'm unable to help a friend who's having a problem getting a book purchased from Fictionwise onto her Kindle.

Does anyone have any suggestions to help her out?

Can you help me w/downloading books to desktop & putting them on my kindle?? I opened up my kindle documents folder & dragged the book from desktop to kindle doc folder & it's not showing up on my kindle but if I can close & open my kindle doc folder & see it. I have also selected the right format for my kindle on the fictionwise site (MOBI). Do you know what I am doing wrong? I have had this trouble before w/other sites & authors free books but finally got them to work.

Problem solved.  The downloaded book was in Mobipocket and not Mobi.  That can be confusing to new Fictionwise users.  When I first started using FW I thought Mobi was an abbreviation of Mobipocket myself!
