The app is crashing every time it’s trying to prepare an ebook in any format that’s not pdf.
When you open the app again, it will show two generated files instead of one. Clicking on the book cover will make the app crash again.
Long time ago, it was possible to add ebooks in Kindle-compatible formats, such as .mobi or .prc. These times are over, and you should think whether you need Kindle for Mac app at all.
What are the alternatives?
There are two more ways to add own books to your Kindle cloud account:
1. Download and use Send to Kindle for Mac app
After installing the app, you will be able to drag and drop to add the files to the Kindle. You can also use the control-click on the file in the Finder.
I don’t recommend using this method. Amazon may decide to stop developing the app the same way as they did in Kindle for Mac.
2. Send files via email to a dedicated email address
This is a much more reliable option. Amazon will process the file in the cloud, no matter whether this is .mobi or .pdf.
Simply, attach the file you have on your Mac to an email, and send this email to a dedicated address. You don’t have to type anything, neither in a title nor in a body field.
Each device or app that you have connected to your Amazon Kindle address comes with a dedicated email address.
To find an email address connected with your Kindle device:
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. Use this email every time you want an own book to add to your Kindle collection.

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.
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.
