1. Sending files via email is the most reliable way of adding own ebooks to the Kindle library. 2. Go to Amazon » Devices » Your Content and Devices » Device Summary. 3. Customize the email address.
Do you add many own ebooks to your Kindle or Kindle app? You can try connecting your Kindle as an external drive to your computer and copy files. You can also use Send to Kindle for Mac or PC or use a feature provided by mobile Amazon Kindle apps.
The most reliable option, however, is sending files via email.
Amazon will process each file in the cloud, no matter whether this is .mobi or .pdf.
Each device or app that you have connected to your Amazon Kindle address comes with a dedicated email address.
Attach the file to an email and send it instantly – you don’t have to type anything, neither in a title nor in a body field.
The file should appear in the Kindle cloud library within a few minutes, and you should be able to download it immediately to your device.
How to find an email address to send own ebooks to Kindle
1. Go to Amazon website » Accounts & Lists » Your Content and Devices.
2. Click on “Devices” in the top navigation bar and select the device you want an email for.
3. Click on the device’s name in the bottom widget.
4. Find an email in the device summary and copy it.
5. Click on “Edit” link to customize the address. It will always end with @kindle.com but you can change the name to make it easier to remember or easier to differentiate between various devices and apps connected to your account.
6. Use this email every time you want an own book to add to your Kindle collection.
Make sure to send files from an email address that you use to log in to Amazon.
You can use other emails as well, but you will need to add them to a list of approved addresses:
Go to Amazon » Manage Content and Devices » Preferences.
Scroll down to reveal “Personal Documents Settings” and click on it.
Scroll down to see “Approved Personal Document E-mail List” and click on a link “Add a new approved e-mail address.”

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.
