Hi all,
I need help in downloading books from my laptop to my Kindle. I have loads of free books on my laptop, but don't know how to download to Kindle. If someone out there can help me with this, I would be extremely grateful. In return I have a stick with all the aforementioned content loaded which you would be welcome to download to your own machine.
Thank you in anticipation.

To transfer books to Kindle
[list=X5LH0c]
[*]Connect your device to computer via USB.
[*]Double click the drive to open it and view the folders.
[*]Select the item you want to transfer (mobi or pdf).
[*]Copy books to the folder (documents) under Kindle drive.
[*]Or you can also use the Send-to-Kindle email address.

Don't know if this will help?

Thanks for the reply Mariposa. I must be thick because I could not follow your instructions. Is it possible to expand with more detail ??

Hi Keith,

That was just one of many suggestions I found on a Google search.

Here is another...

https://www.dummies.com/consumer-electronics/tablets/kindle/how-to-transfer-files-from-your-computer-to-your-kindle-paperwhite/

I don't know if this one will help?  It is for a Kindle Paperwhite, but I don't know which Kindle you have.

You could try a Google search and see if there is anything more relevant.

Hi caveman666
We use Calibre
https://calibre-ebook.com/
If your kindle is plugged in you drag books from pc into calibre, or browse for them, them right click selected books and 'send to device'.

If your kindle is not plugged in, you can right click the selected book/s 'share' and send to an email address, your kindle will have an email address, the kindle just recieved the books via the internet then.
