Is anyone else having trouble getting to the Amazon site? I've been trying for the last hour & just get "Server Not Found" . I can't even get to my Kindle books list. I blame Trump!

ETA: And it's back again! Sorry about my little mini-panic. lol :)

No - I can get into it but then I'm in Florida, could it be geographic?

Possibly Rose. I'm in the opposite corner of the country up in Washington state. I can get to any other site except for Amazon. Just is very weird! Guess I'll check again later. I was trying to look at some Kindle books for sale. oh well, thanks!

Yes
Works fine in NL as well.
Both the Dutch .nl site and the international .com site.
So it must be a regional thingy.

And now it's magically up again! Thanks everyone for checking & letting me know. It's just very unusual for it to be down when everything else is working fine. Anyway, all is well in my little book world again. lol

Apparently it was down for 15 minutes for everyone.

Yeah, Summer, it's pretty flawed logic.

By that logic, that means 100% of Amazon purchases are spur of the moment unneeded items people would not wait and buy 15 minutes later.
Coincidentally, I went to Amazon while it was down because I wanted to pre order something I knew would sell out everywhere almost instantly.

So I ended up ordering it elsewhere.

Despite the outtage, It sold out almost as soon as the site returned.
