Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments I opened both kindle editions, and clicked the amazon button, and they both went to the right books.

Could you provide a link to the exact book you are having an issue with. The one linked to in the Thread title, is not always the edition you selected.

Then where it says "Get a Copy" there is a button that says "Kindle eBook $3.99". When I click that button it takes me to the other book.

Philip, when you're looking at a non-Kindle edition on GR, there will often be a "Kindle eBook" button which should take you to the Kindle edition on Amazon, even though you weren't looking at the Kindle edition on GR. It's just a way for Kindle users to quickly go to the Kindle edition on Amazon without having to find the right Kindle edition on GR. Very useful for Kindle users.

So if you're looking at the hardcover edition of Speaking in Bones on GR and click "Kindle eBook", it takes you to an entirely incorrect book on Amazon.

I'm not sure that this is something a Librarian can fix though, since I don't know how the system finds the Kindle version without the ASIN.

It is not. For issues with that button, users are advised to use the Contact Us link on the Help page.

Oh, OK...Ty Robin, I had not realized that the button was not always there.
