How to Update OSTraining Books on Amazon Kindle

All OSTraining books are available via Amazon. You can buy the books in Kindle format.

We update the OSTraining books often, so people ask us how to get the updates on their Kindle.

In this guide, I'll show you how to get the updates. These processes don't work 100% of the time (Amazon's update process can be flaky), but these are the best options we've found.


Automatic Kindle Updates

  • Go to the Amazon site you use for your purchases.
  • Inside your Amazon account, find the "Manage Your Content and Devices"
  • Go to the "Preferences" tab.
  • Find “Automatic Book Update”, turn it on.
