What Are Kindle Email Addresses For?

Every Kindle has a unique email address. When you send an email to that address, and the email contains a compatible attachment, Amazon delivers the attached file to your Kindle. This service is free, and you can use it to send both ebooks and other compatible documents. If you have a lot of ebooks you didn’t buy from Amazon, this is a good way to get them on your Kindle.

You can send up to 25 files at a time, but the total file size can’t exceed 50 MB. Compatible file types include .EPUB, .PDF, .DOCX, .HTM, .RTF, and .TXT. You can also send .GIF, .JPG, and .BMP images.

  • How do I access Kindle email?

    Even though your Kindle has an email address, it doesn't have a normal "inbox" that you can check. The address' only purpose is to let you easily send files directly to your reader.

  • How do I retrieve books sent to my Kindle email?

    Books in a compatible format will automatically load in your Kindle library after you send them. If you don't see something you emailed, make sure that your Kindle is connected to the internet and that the file you sent is in the right format and smaller than 50 MB.
