I am also affected from this bug (I suppose it's something Canonical would have to investigate) on my Lumia 1020 using Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1.

Alternatively, with mild hacks, you can gain access to the Isolated Storage of the Kindle app and just copy the file there.

The first thing I try for these types of problems is to delink all accounts and relink them 1 at a time, checking to see if the people hub works. Often times issues like this are caused by the oAuth token being revoked by the external service for whatever reason. I won't say that's your problem, but it's pretty likely.

Google has no love for Windows Phone, and has decided to show this by turning off Exchange ActiveSync support for new devices (last I checked, it still worked for devices that had been set up before the cutoff, though... even though that was around two years ago).
