How to Put Free Ebooks on Your Amazon Kindle
The Amazon Kindle is a fantastic book reader, but it’s tied to Amazon’s ecosystem; you can download ebooks in EPUB, Mobi, and PDF formats to your device.
Find Your Kindle Email
The simplest way to get books on your Kindle is to send them to yourself via email; your Kindle must be connected to a Wi-Fi or 3G network to do so. Create a new approved e-mail address and enter the address you want to use.
Choose Your E-Book Format
What is the best way to send an e-book to your Kindle?
Although Amazon no longer supports the Mobi format for reflowable ebooks, you can still download and read Mobi-friendly ebooks by attaching the file to an email and sending it to your Kindle’s address.
If you want your Kindle to display every page in the PDF as if it were a graphic, simply email the file to your Kindle’s address; the formatting and graphics will be preserved, but the font size may be too small to read.
Calibre, a free piece of software that can reformat almost any kind of ebook for most ebook readers, is the key. You can email text files, blog posts, Word documents, and more to your Kindle by simply filling in the email address you’ve set to send documents with.
