  1. Alan, I’ve had a problem w/ books on Amazon: When I select a book
    to preview, I’m told to “Sign in to read more pages.” I already have an acct. w/ Amazon, but am not able to continue reading.
    Amazon’s people have been useless in helping, so I’ve given up.
    I don’t know what more I need to do?

    • Where are you trying to preview the book, on the Amazon web site or on the Kindle software?
      If you are on the Amazon site, you will need to log in with your registered account before you can try a sample of any book.
      If you are using the kindle software on your phone, tablet or PC you will need to register with your Amazon account details in Kindle.
      There is an image on this post of what that screen looks like.
      Hope that helps
