That’s right, go to your old junk drawer and pull out your old Kindle and update it — or else.
Owners of Kindle e-readers can do this the easy way or the hard way. Either way, they’ll need to update their Kindles with an emergency patch from Amazon if they ever want to see new books downloaded to their e-readers again.
Without the update, owners of Kindle e-readers will no longer have access to the Kindle store and other Kindle services. They’ll also be unable to download books from the cloud to their e-readers.
March 22 is the last day to get the update without having to go through added hassle.
