"The content isn't downloadable for your region"

 

I recall last time with freetime for kids I had to change my account to USA, might need to change them again...

There is a book there I'd like, is it possible to gift that from another account, as my Amazon account is US based, and I am not keen to change it. 

 

The John Milton Series: Books 1-3 (The John Milton Series Box set) Kindle Edition

It wanted me to change my account to default to the Aussie store, I just searched for the books on the US amazon site and they were free there too without me needing to change anything.

Spoke to Networkn in a pm but for others to know. Being logged in as an NZ account dictates your pricing even when using a vpn putting you in the states so he can't take advantage of that pricing.

Mind you, the OP posted a link to Amazon AU. If you have a Kindle with a US account these books won't be downloaded as the Kindle will not be visible to a non-US account.

Clicked on the John Milton Series books and then saw them downloaded to my kindle account which is linked to amazon.com.au

 

Who or what are the John Milton Series books?

NB: T&C's state content needs to be downloaded, otherwise it's not a valid sale.

I got offered free Kindle book from Amazon uk.

Great except I bought it on my kindle 3 years ago so it wasn't "selected for me"
