4 ways to add own ebooks to Amazon Fire

1. Send via email

The most popular way is to send a file to the email address associated with your device.

If you buy the Fire tablet on Amazon, it will already come preregistered with your Amazon account. A unique email address is being associated with your Fire, so that you can send your third-party ebooks right to it.

You can find it in the Settings section. Here is how to find an email address for sending own ebooks to Kindle and Fire.

2. Use Send to Kindle

You can also use a Send to Kindle application. It’s available for Mac and Windows, but you can also get it for Chrome and Firefox browsers.

While the desktop version lets you add files stored on a computer disc, the browser extension helps add web content.

3. Use cloud storage service

If you use a cloud storage service like Dropbox, you can upload the file to it from your computer, and use a Dropbox application on your Fire tablet to download the file to Docs app.

4. Use microSD card

You can move copy files from your computer to a microSD card and then insert the card into a slot in your Fire tablet. The files become accessible instantly.
