Send to Kindle App from a Computer

If you are on a computer (Windows or Mac), there is a program you can download called Send to Kindle. It is an official Amazon program that will quickly get mobi and pdf ebook files from your computer to your Amazon Kindle account.

  1. Download the appropriate Send to Kindle for your device. (If you have a pc, download Send to Kindle for PC, if you have a mac, download Send to Kindle for Mac, etc).
  2. When you’ve downloaded the program, find it on your computer (usually you should be able to find it in your “Downloads” folder). This will open an “Installer”. This Installer will guide you through the installation of the Send to Kindle program onto your device. Follow the instructions it gives you.
  3. Once you download and install this program, it will ask you to log in to your Amazon account.
  4. Find the attachment at the top or bottom of the email called “Here is your claimed book!”, and click on the attachment to download the file.
  5. Find the ebook file (.mobi or .pdf only) on your computer where you saved it (when you download a file, it is automatically sent to your “Downloads” folder unless you have picked a different default location for downloads or saved it elsewhere), and drag the file into the Send to Kindle app where it says “Drop files here”.
  6. Put a checkmark next to the device you want to send your file to and click “Send”.
  7. You should see a dialogue box that reads “Upload complete'. Give us a few minutes to format and deliver your document. Please ensure your Kindle is connected to the network to receive your document. Select the “OK” button
  8. The book should appear in your Kindle library. If it doesn’t, select “Sync & Check for Items” and check if your book has arrived. This may take a few minutes. If you have a Kindle Fire, the book might be found in the “Docs” section, and the cover may not appear until you have opened the book.

Send From Your Email

If Send to Kindle doesn’t work for you, send files directly to your Kindle email. You'll first need to find your Kindle email address through Amazon.com, and then you'll be able to forward your book file to your Kindle.

Adding an Approved Kindle Email Address

  1. Login to your Amazon account through the Amazon website.
    1. If you live in the United Kingdom, use Amazon's international site.
    2. If you live in Canada, use Amazon's international site.
    3. If you live in Australia, use Amazon's international site.
  2. You will be brought to the 'Your Content and Devices' page. Select the “Preferences” tab.
  3. Scroll down to 'Personal Document Settings' and click on the header to expand the section. You will see a list of your Kindle email addresses ([email protected]). There will be one email address listed for each Kindle device you own.
  4. Make sure the personal email you use to claim your books is on the 'Approved Personal Document E-mail List,' which is also in the “Personal Document Settings” section (just below “Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings”). If it is not, click on 'Add a new approved e-mail address' and add the personal email address that you claim books from Prolific Works with here.

Send Your Files to Your Kindle Email

  1. Use your personal email address when claiming a Prolific Works book.
  2. Forward your Prolific Works email, along with the book file you received from us, to your Kindle email address. Your Kindle email address is the email address that you use to access Amazon.com, but with '@kindle.com' as its domain. For example, if your Amazon account login email is [email protected], then your Kindle email address is [email protected] When sending the email, make sure to change the Subject line to 'Convert'.
  3. Now go to the Kindle App for the device. Click the Sync button, and wait a few minutes for it to sync, although it should happen right away.
  4. If you have a Kindle Fire, the book should appear in the “Docs” section on your Kindle. The cover may not show until you open the book for the first time.

The Right Way to Backup Kindle Books

May I ask you one question: why do you want to find the file location of Kindle books? Here is my guess--most of you may want to back up your kindle books. If this is the real purpose for finding your downloaded kindle content, just copying Kindle books from the original folder to another place is not the right method for backing up Kindle ebooks. Why? Because all Kindle books have been protected by Kindle DRM, you cannot access these books without your account authorization.

Therefore, the correct way to back up your kindle books is removing Kindle DRM to get the DRM free books. If you have the DRM-free Kindle books, you do not have to worry about computer crash, Amazon account banned issues, books disappeared from Amazon account etc.
