How Do I Add My Book To My Kindle?

First, lets make sure your ebook is in mobi or PDF format, If your book is an epub you can simply convert the file by clicking here. Simply click and drag your file to to the "Add Files" Button, and then click "Convert" wait approximately 20-30 seconds then you will hit "Download"

Now lets explore some others ways you can import your book to your kindle. Here is my favorite and most easiest way. 

If your books are in the mobi format, they're already readable by the Kindle. Attach the file to an email, send it to your Kindle's email address (with any subject, and nothing in the body of the email), and it should appear on your Kindle shortly. 

This is how to find your kindle email address and steps going forward on how to email it to your kindle. 

1) Log into your Amazon account

2) Go to the Manage Your Content and Devices pages from the Account menu 

3) Select the Settings tab on the right

4) Scroll right to the bottom of the page and select Add a new approved e-mail address:

5) Enter the email address you will be sending your attachment from and select Add Address

It should give you a little ‘Success!’ message

Now, find your Kindle email address (so we can send the books to you):

1) In the Settings tab (shown above – you’re probably still on this page), scroll to Personal Document Settings


You should see all your devices listed here – either Kindles, or phones/tablets/computers that have the Kindle app installed. Send us the email address linked to whichever device you want your ebooks on (or all your devices if you like!), 














Another way would be to engage in a USB File transfer. 

Although e-mailing or sending a document to your Kindle is fast and easy, connecting your Kindle via USB cable and transferring books via drag-and-drop is simple too.


  1. Plug the larger end of the USB cable into an available USB port or a powered USB hub connected to your computer, and connect the other end of the USB cable to the micro-USB port on the bottom of the Kindle .

    When connected to the PC, the Kindle  goes into USB drive mode and its battery is recharged by the computer. Wireless service is temporarily shut off. The Kindle isn’t usable as a reading device while in USB drive mode but returns to your reading location when you eject the device from your computer.

  2. When your Kindle  is connected, simply drag and drop (or copy and paste) the file from your computer’s hard drive to the Kindle .

    For e-books, make sure to place the file in the Documents folder on the Kindle . If you put the file in the root drive, it won’t appear on the Home screen of your Kindle .

If your file is in a Kindle-compatible formats, you can transfer it directly from your computer to your Kindle  via USB. To transfer the files, follow these easy steps:

  1. Connect your Kindle  to your computer using the USB cable.

    Your computer recognizes your Kindle  when it’s plugged in and displays the Kindle  as a removable drive. If you go to my Computer (PC) or Finder (Mac), your Kindle  appears as a drive.


  2. Double-click the drive to open it and view the folders on your Kindle .

  3. Open another window and navigate to the file(s) you want to transfer to your Kindle .

  4. Drag the file(s) to the appropriate folder on your Kindle .

    Place your text and documents files in the Documents folder on your Kindle .

    You can also use the Copy and Paste commands to move documents to the documents folder.

  5. Eject your Kindle  from your computer:

    • On a Windows 8 PC: Right-click the Kindle drive icon and choose Eject. A notification that it is safe to remove the device from the computer appears.

    • On a Windows Vista or Windows 7 PC, choose Start→Computer, and then right-click the Kindle drive icon and choose Eject. You can also left- or right-click the Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media icon in the lower-right corner of the taskbar.

    • On a Mac, Control-click the Kindle device icon and choose Eject.

    The files you transferred are displayed on your Home screen and are available for you to view on your Kindle.
