You should report it via your Update tab, then.

I can’t download the book I am trying to review. I clicked on the link that is supposed to take me to amazon to download the book using an Amazon Gift Certificate but when I get there is says “We're having trouble locating your redemption.” Then I tried clicking the other link to use the gift code to redeem my book but that doesn’t work either. I have gotten multiple books using the free amazon kindle app and it has never given me this problem before.
The book that isn’t working is “Thuroks: Union with Immortality.”

I tried downloading the book “Imar’s daughters” but I keep receiving the error message: This ebook cannot be redeemed by customers in your country. I use an iPhone and I have downloaded a book on this device before.

It took me a while to figure out on Apple devices so I thought I would share what I’ve discovered. Once the .mobi file is downloaded, click the share button and then choose the Kindle app. Then go to the Kindle app In the “ALL” category. From there you can download to the Kindle.

Hope this helps! :)
