Kindle Readers

Option 1: Desktop

  1. Connect your Kindle to your computer via USB cable.
  2. Copy and paste the MOBI file to your Kindle (or drag & drop).

Option 2: Email

If you’re someone who doesn’t have access to a USB cable, you can quickly email your file directly to your Kindle (as long as it’s not a giant comic book or a file with tons of large photos).

  1. To do this, navigate to the Content and Devices page on your Amazon account.
  2. Click on the Devices subhead and select the device you want to send your file to. Be aware that you might have to click the device twice to view its information.
  3. After you can see the data, you’ll see that your Kindle has an email address attached to it.
  4. Open your email, include the converted file as an attachment, and send it off to your Kindle’s email.
  5. You should receive the file in a few minutes or so if the Kindle is successfully connected to Wi-Fi or mobile internet.
