How to Change Your Country on Amazon So You Can Buy Different Kindle Books


Book rights, and especially eBook rights, can be messy. UK publishers can’t just start selling books in the US, and vice versa. For most modern books by big authors, you’ll see the hardback and eBook versions being published at pretty much the same time around the world. For older books that were released before eBooks were a big deal, and for smaller authors with publishing deals, however, you’ll regularly find that the eBook version is available in some countries and not others.

Check out this book, The King Arthur Trilogy Book One: Dragon’s Child by M. K. Hume. For me, it’s available on Kindle in the UK Amazon store.

…But not in the US one.

If you’re an American fan of Hume, this would be pretty annoying, since you can’t purchase books from the UK Kindle Store. I run into this issue every so often, but fortunately, there’s a workaround: it’s possible to change which Store your Kindle uses.

For this to work, you need an address in the other country….
