This is the same version as the one on Play Store.

Everything is working fine but I don't seem to be able to access my kindle books from it. I can go back to the carousel and open books there, but when I try to open the Kindle reader application nothing happens?

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Any help would be appreciated thanks

Just create a shortcut to amazon kindle. Any books you have open and are actively reading will open automatically. Now to change books just go to home and pick a new one.

What I did was move the Kindle app out of the system folder with Titanium Backup (requires root). I may not have needed to do that because my next step was to "backup and uninstall" (again with Titanium Backup). I then went to Google Play/Market and re-installed from there. Now it works fine.

Update: you do have to change Kindle app from a system app to user app if you want to do a "backup/uninstall". Another option may to just to a "force remove", but I wanted to have the app backed up.
