1. Your sideloaded books are not in the Kindle app. 2. Go to Docs app, and then select Send-to-Kindle option.
Amazon lets you add your own books to the Kindle or Kindle app by providing a dedicated email that you can send the files to. You can find this email address by going to Amazon website, and then Account & Lists » Your Content and Devices » Devices » Device Summary.
All sideloaded books are managed via the Kindle cloud library the same way as books acquired from the Kindle store. You can sync last-read positions, bookmarks, or notes.
Amazon Fire tablet handles book files differently.
If you have added personal books to your Kindle account in the past, you will be surprised to discover that they don’t show up in the Kindle app, which is called “Books” on the Amazon Fire tablet.
It’s because Amazon wants you to collect digital content from their own platform.
Your personal ebooks are available on the Fire tablet, but they are located in a different app – Docs.
How to find my sideloaded books on Amazon Fire tablet
1. Open the Fire tablet. Look for “Docs” app in the Home screen, and open it.
2. At the top, you will see three locations: Local Storage, Cloud Drive, and Send-to-Kindle.
3. The files that you have added to Kindle in the past, should be available in the Send-to-Kindle folder.
4. Tap the file to download it to the Fire tablet. Once the download is finished, tap again to open it in the Books app.
5. To read any sideloaded book, you will need to open it from the Docs app, not Books.

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.
