I want to put a link to a book in the Kindle store in a webpage that is viewed from the Kindle browser. I tried using the link to the Amazon page for my ebook, but from the Kindle browser it says "not found" even though this link works just fine from my computer.
What is the URL for the Kindle browser that would get you to a page in the Kindle Bookstore for a given ASIN? The Kindle browser does not display its URLs.
okay, i did a little research on this with my kindle. it looks like they have a filter set up to not allow links from kindle content to kindle store items except through the kindle's "store" interface.
i put together a test HTML file with a link pointing to my book in the kindle store, but got the same error you guys have been getting.
then i tried using the kindle's web browser and typing in the link directly: same thing.
and then i tried going to amazon through the kindle browser, and did a search on my book. an interesting result: only the print version appeared in the results (i just pulled on "in her name")! the kindle version wasn't listed at all in the search results, nor was it accessible from the print version's product page as displayed on the kindle.
i know that really only deepens the mystery, but it seems like amazon is trying to make sure everything from kindles flows to the kindle store directly. i agree that there should be some way to point from your kindle file to a kindle store link, but i don't see it!
