Technician's Assistant: When could you last access your Kindle?

The Kindle restarted, but the book I bought doesn’t show up. Therefore, no, my problem is not solved.
Electronics Technician: Aparna Indresh,
 replied 4 months ago

I understand your concern as you have mentioned you bought that book under different name so your book is there in that amazon account.

Electronics Technician: Aparna Indresh,

In order to get access to that book you need to register your kindle to the same account under which you bought that book.
