Here’s how to download your eBook and move it your Kindle.
First, when you complete the purchase of your eBook from Blazing Star, look for the ‘Download’ button on the ‘Checkout Success’ page, as in the picture below.
Click it and select where to save it to on your PC, like ‘Desktop’ or ‘Downloads’. Don’t worry if you already left the checkout page, just log in again and click My Account. You’ll see the Download option there, which will be good for two weeks. Miss your deadline?, just email us and we’ll fix it.
Next, you’ll want to get it to your Kindle. There are two methods. The first is easy, you email it your Kindle! To do this, you need to have set up your Kindle account to accept emailed content from your email address. Here’s how to set that up:
- Visit the Manage Your Kindle page. (www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle)
- Sign in to your Amazon account.
- Select “Personal Document Settings” from the left hand menu.
- Under the heading “Approved Personal Document E-mail List” select “Add a new approved e-mail address.” Enter the e-mail address and select “Add Address.”
Send the .mobi book file as an attachment to your address @kindle.com and the document will be delivered via WiFi to your Kindle at no charge.
Once the Mobi eBook has been delivered, it will be viewable by accessing the ‘Docs’ content library from your Kindle.
The other method is to plug your Kindle in to your PC with the USB charging cable. After a moment, click the Computer (or My Computer) icon (if you don’t see it on your desktop, click the Windows ‘start’ icon or Windows logo in the ball on the lower left of you bottom task bar, then click Computer on the start menu). You should see a drive letter that says ‘Kindle’. If you have an older operating system like Windows XP. it might just say ‘attached storage’. Click it and look for the Documents directory inside, as in the picture below.
Open up the directory where you saved your eBook and drag the book file into the Documents folder on the Kindle. Eject your Kindle and look for your book in ‘My Items’, or on a Kindle Fire, look directly in the Documents folder. Happy reading!
