Amazon’s free conversion service has been one of Kindle’s killer features ever since the Kindle launched in 2007. I have used it countless times over the years, but lately I have found that Amazon is throwing up roadblocks that limit how I use the service.
Earlier today I emailed several ebooks so they could be converted and added to my Kindle account, only to have the process stall when Amazon sent not one but two emails demanding that I confirm that I really wanted Amazon to convert these ebooks.
Have you seen this before? Do you know when it started?
I only started seeing it in late April, but it had been a couple years since I last used the email conversion service, so I might have missed it being phased in.
Is this annoyance widespread, or am I being singled out for some reason?
