eBooks on your Kindle
NOTE: AMAZON DROPS PUBLISHER SUPPORT FOR SEND-TO-KINDLE
Please note that as of May, 2015, Amazon has notified us and other publishers that they will no longer allow publishers to use the “send to Kindle” email feature. We are trying to work with Amazon to convince them to keep this feature for you convenience, but it would appear that your convenience is not a priority.
If you would like to discuss this policy with Amazon, please contact Amazon customer support at +1-866-321-8851 (US customers) or +1-206-266-0927 (International Customers).
The mobi format is used by the Amazon Kindle. Limitations in the mobi file format may cause it to display differently on different physical Kindle devices. If you notice an issue, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org. However, the mobi format is very limited and we may not be able to improve the display. In addition, mobi files that are not purchased directly from the Amazon store may have additional issues: Amazon may or may not support syncing notes across devices, availability via the Kindle App, availability via the cloud, and so on. For more information on Amazon’s support of user-loaded documents, please check with Amazon.com.
To the Kindle Via Your Computer
You can download mobi versions of your eBooks to your computer, and then transfer them across to your Kindle.
- To get the files onto your computer, you can either download from our site, or have them transferred to a Dropbox on your computer.
- Plug your Kindle into your computer using a USB cable. It will mount as a filesystem. Drag the mobi file into the
documentsfolder on the Kindle, and then unmount the Kindle.. (Kindle 1 owners: you’ll also need to unplug the USB cable to get your Kindle back into book-reading mode. Kindle 2 owners can leave the cable connected)
Please note that you can’t load books into the Kindle Application on the desktop using email, you have to transfer the file to the computer then open it with the application.
