How to Transfer Books to Kindle

In addition to the possibility of buying books on Amazon, or downloading them for free to your Kindle, the truth is that there are more ways to transfer books to Kindle that you should consider. And it is that, contrary to what you may think, the truth is that Kindle is not limited only to Amazon books, in fact it can read many others, only that they have to be included in a special format (MOBI). And how to pass them? We tell you.

The first thing you should know are the different places where you can download books, such as web pages or even files that you have (for example, in pdf) and want to read on your Kindle. In these cases, The most important thing to keep in mind is that the file is in MOBI.

Sometimes that can't be achieved, but you can use Calibre or Send to Kindle to convert it to that format and send it to your Kindle along the way.

And another way to pass the books, without having to connect the device to the computer is through email. Every Kindle has a special email (you can see it on your Amazon profile page). If you send an email to that email address with the attached books, you will automatically be able to enjoy it in your library.

It is possible that, on occasion, you find that your Kindle does not read the book. Maybe it's not even on the list of available books in your library, or maybe it is, but no matter how much you give it to read you, you don't get it.

In case you encounter this problem, we leave you possible solutions that you can try:

  • Make sure your Kindle device is connected to the Internet and has enough battery life. Some books need to be connected to the Internet to download additional content or to sync reading between devices.
  • Verify that you have successfully downloaded the book to your Kindle device. If the book doesn't appear in your book library, you may not have downloaded it successfully, or there was a problem during the download.
  • Restart your Kindle. Sometimes simply restarting the device can fix reading problems.
  • Check that the book you are trying to read is compatible with your Kindle device. Some books may be available in formats that are not supported by some Kindle models.

If none of this works for you, the last thing you can do is delete it (if it's on your Kindle) and download it again. If even that doesn't work, contact Amazon to see if the problem is with them or your ereader.

Now all you have to do is enjoy reading after learning how to download books on Kindle. Have you ever had problems with them? How did you solve it? We read you!
