So you’ve purchased a Kindle ebook from a publisher or won one in a contest and you’re wondering how to put it on your Kindle. The simplest way is to email it to your Kindle:
- Download the book to your computer.
- Start a new email
- In the “to” section put the Kindle email name you were assigned when you got your Kindle. It should say “yourname”@Kindle.com. Leave the” subject” blank.
- Attach the file you purchased to the email.
- Click send.
That’s it. Just be sure your Kindle wireless is turned on. The book will appear in your Kindle like magic. (Another way is to attach your USB cord between your computer and your Kindle and drag or move the file over with your mouse, but emailing is simpler).
Another tip: When you buy from a publisher for Kindle, get the mobipocket/prc version. That’s the one that is formatted for Kindle. You can also get the PDF, but not all your Kindle functions will work on a PDF.
