Downloading a Non-Amazon Purchased e-Book
Onto Your Kindle/Kindle App
Getting a non-Amazon purchased e-book onto your Kindle/Kindle App is pretty easy. There is a one-time set up, using the quick steps below, and then you’re just minutes away from enjoying that new book.
Sign into your Amazon account from your computer.
From Your Account Dropdown, select Manage Your Content and Devices.
Click the Settings tab.
Scroll down to Personal Document Settings.
Under the Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings, make note of your Kindle’s email address (* you’ll need this later). NOTE: Do not use device e-mails, only your Kindle e-mail
Scroll down under the Approved Personal Document List check to see if your personal e-mail address is listed. (If your e-mail address is not listed, select Add a new approved e-mail address. Enter the desired e-mail address and click Add Address. NOTE: This would be the e-mail that you are going to send the document from, not your Kindle e-mail.)
If you choose to have another entity such as a publisher, author, promoter, etc. push the e-book directly to your Kindle you will want to add their e-mail address in the above step. (You can list multiple approved e-mails.) Should this be the case THEY will complete the steps below or you will complete from their website.
Now it is simple: Anytime you want to send a non-Amazon purchased e-book to your Kindle/Kindle App all you have to do is:
* From your personal e-mail account (on your computer, mobile phone, or tablet) locate the e-mail which contains your e-book file, or attach the e-book to an e-mail, and forward it to your Kindle e-mail address. (You will need to send the e-book/file as one of the formats below.)
Once you have sent the e-mail, on your Kindle (or Kindle app) click the Sync button and your book will load.
