I'm wondering if you can get books for it in other langues other then English?? My DS2's GF can't read much here because she has troble reading English for fun, could I get her one & load with African books? She's from Sounth Africa?
Any help please as I'm not sure how to find out.
TIA

I don't have a Kindle, but I just Googled "Afrikaans kindle books" and got 19,975 on Amazon, so it seems that you can! Check which language(s) she speaks though - there are many others besides Afrikaans in South Africa.

Or you could get the Kindle and a gift voucher so that she could load her own.

That's a lovely idea.

Wait. I forgot you don't have Amazon.

I just found this thread: http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/261618-...
It's from 2010 but people are complaining about the limited Kindle books available to Afrikaans speakers.

But also this where someone has started up their own Kindle books distribution in South Africa: http://www.kindlebooks.co.za/

I think you just have to search around and see what you can find, Wen. It may be that the Kindle is not the way to go for her yet. Good luck!
