How Do You Force Kindle to Check for New Books?

by Geek Insider Staff

All the books you buy on amazon should automatically add to your Kindle library.  However, sometimes the books fail to show up in your library. Here’s the remedy.

Activate Internet on Your Kindle and Sync.

  1. Confirm that the Kindle is connected to Wi-Fi by locating the Wi-Fi symbol on the screen’s top-right corner. There’s also a 4G or 3G symbol for cellular data.

Note that an Airplane symbol means that your Kindle is in flight mode and hence not connected.
