Some people don’t know how to get a free book (Like Burn Artist) to their Kindle or device, so here’s some tutorials I wrote to help you get reading quickly. These methods work with any book, not just mine.
How to get the book onto Kindle via USB:
- Save the Burn Artist .mobi file to your computer.
- Plug in your Kindle device with the USB charge cord.
- Open up the ‘Documents’ folder on your Kindle.
- Drag and drop (or cut and paste) the Burn Artist file into ‘Documents’
- Disconnect your Kindle: the book should be in your library!
Kindle for PC:
Download the book. If you have Kindle for PC installed, you should be able to double-click the file and it will open in the Kindle Program automatically.
If the book doesn’t open with a doubleclick, cut and paste the .mobi file into the ‘My Kindle Content’ folder in your ‘My Documents’.
How to get the book on your Kindle or Ereader via email:
If you have a Kindle device (Paperwhite, Voyager, etc), you can send the book to your Kindle by email. To do this, all you need is your Kindle’s email address and to change a couple of settings.
To find this email address, visit http://www.amazon.com/myk using your PC’s web browser. You will arrive on a page with three options: ‘Your Content’, ‘Your Devices’ and ‘Settings’.
Click on ‘Your Devices’ and select your Kindle or Ereader. Underneath the selected icon, you will see information about your Kindle, including the email address. It usually looks like: <Amazon username>@kindle.com.
Now go back up, and click ‘Settings’ and scroll all the way down to the “Approved Personal Document E-mail List.” Click “add a new approved e-mail address,” and add the email address you intend to send your books from.
Remember, your Kindle needs to be attached to a Wi-Fi or 3G network for this to work. It doesn’t have to be your home network, of course; you can go to a coffee shop or a public library, for instance.
Send the Burn Artist .mobi file to your Kindle email address with no message or subject, and voila – you will be able to read the book on your Kindle! Once you’ve set this up, you can do this with any book, not just mine.
How to read a free book on your PC without Kindle:
To read the .epub file, download the free Adobe Digital Editions program here: http://www.adobe.com/solutions/ebook/digital-editions/download.html
Once this is installed, you should be able to double-click your new .epub file and read it in your fancy new e-reader 🙂
