Try looking around location 2600 in the Kindle version of the book.

And did you know that the Kindle version of the book is currently available for only $1.99? Now is a great time to snag it, if you are considering getting it, but balking at the price.

ROLANDD, you can d/l Kindle to your PC and your smartphone or iPhone for free AND you can synchronize what you are reading on all the devices you have Kindle on.

You do not have to own a dedicated Kindle in order to do this. I d/l it to my computer way before I received my Kindle.

Check it out at Amazon.com. emoticon

Thank you, Lauren! I found it, used it and am so excited! I didn't know there was even a team for people who have read THE SPARK!

Also, THENEWSLIMFAST1, on another message thread, reminded me of the text to speech feature. I have never used it before, but am excited to start listening to THE SPARK while I'm on my treadmill! I need the reviews / reminders / encouragement!

I am already REmotivated ... which I needed!

Puglover, the code is somewhere in one of the appendixes. The code will also get you into a private forum just for readers of The Spark.

My computer crashed the other day and I am in the process of setting up a new one. I don't yet have Kindle for PC set up on it, so it will be a day or two before I can get the information you need. I am getting ready to work a 14 hour day today.

Lyn, you should be able to use the code, also, as it's in one of the appendixes. We can't post the code here, of course (SparkPeople wants people to get the book), but if I can find the location of the code, I can let you and everyone else know. Assuming no one has found it on their own.

I haven't been able to get points for buying the spark either as I got my friend in America to get it for me and send it to me....
That was a dumb idea as I think it would have scost me the same if I had bought it direct....

LARRI2010, YOU are the one who got points for buying it, even though you have the Kindle version. Will you please tell me how you did that? When I searched, it seemed to me that only people who bought it from SP got points. emoticon

Thanks! emoticon

My husband gave me a Kindle for Christmas (Exactly what I wanted!) and the very first book I downloaded and read was THE SPARK. I loved the book and added the I READ THE SPARK to my page by editing my Spark Page. However, I have never been able to figure out how to get points for having read it.

Can someone tell me how to do that? emoticon

In case anyone is interested, I occasionally miss having a book in my hand, but hardly ever! I lose myself when I am reading and I love being able to carry lots of books with me wherever I go, all in one convenient "carrying case." emoticon

I have the Kindle edition. I was able to get the "I bought the Spark" badge and the 500 points for buying it. Since I haven't finished reading it, I haven't tried to get that badge.

Whatever way you read the book.......its the message that counts.

Yes, risk taking is inherently failure-prone. Otherwise, it would be called sure-thing-taking.

I like books better. I like turning the pages. I've tried this new fashion of reading but I miss my books.

If you believe you can you will! If you believe you can't you will not!

I bought the Kindle book too and am loving it so far. Very interesting reading. I'm about halfway through. I wonder if there will be something in the book that tells you how to earn the points for reading it?

I bought The Spark for Kindle but I haven't had a chance to really take a look at it yet, but yes, I do believe you are supposed to get the SparkPoints for purchasing the book and you should be able to get the trophy as well.

I'd be interested in other responses myself to see how ...

Has anyone bought the Spark People book for the Kindle?? I'm wondering if I can still get the "I've read the book" award I see on some of your page
