If you purchase legal, non-DRM protected ebooks from other sellers, you can easily transfer them to your device. Instructions in this article apply to all Amazon Fire tablets. What Reader Format to Use for Amazon Fire Tablets The Amazon Kindle app natively reads .mobi files. If you have a book in ePub format, you can still read it, but you either need to convert the ePub file or install a separate reading app on your Fire. Other supported file types for Kindle books include: AZWKPFPRCTXTPDFDOCDOCX If an eBook isn't in the standard MOBI format, it will not appear in the Kindle app. PDFs and other types of files can be found in the Docs app. Download eBooks With the Kindle Browser There are hundreds of websites with free ebooks that you can download directly to your device using Amazon's Silk browser. Files you download can be found in the Docs app. Simply tap a file to open it. If it's in the standard MOBI for Kindle Fire format, the book will open in the Kindle reader app. How to Transfer eBooks From PC to Kindle Fire via USB You can transfer files to and from your Kindle Fire as if it were an external hard drive using a USB cable: Mac users must first install the Android File Transfer utility to complete the USB transfer. Connect your Fire tablet to your computer with a micro-USB cable. If this is your first time connecting the Fire tablet to a computer, swipe down from the top of your tablet's screen and tap USB charging this device. You can skip to step 4 if your PC already has access to your tablet. Tap Transfer files to allow access to your device. On your computer, open the device folder and select Internal Storage. Drag-and-drop any MOBI files in the Books folder, and place PDFs and other files in the Documents folder. Disconnect your tablet from the PC. After you've added your files, you may need to restart the Kindle to get it to recognize your new books. You can also transfer files to your Fire tablet using the Dropbox app for Fire OS. Send eBooks to Kindle via Email It's also possible to send files from your PC to your Kindle Fire using a special email address. To find your Kindle email address on newer Fire devices, open the Docs app and tap Email Docs to your Fire under Send-to-Kindle. When you attach a file to an email and send it to the specified address, the file will automatically appear in your Docs. There's another way to find your Kindle's email address. Log in to your Amazon account on your PC and go to the Manage Amazon Devices page, then select your device. You should see the device's email address listed.
