How to read on Kindle

Visit the collection of eBooks…

  • Browse and check out a Kindle book.
  • Click the 'Get for Kindle' button. This opens the Amazon.com website. You may be required to sign in with your Amazon.com account if you are not already logged in.
  • Select a Kindle device or Kindle reading app. Click the 'Get library book' button and sync your device or app to download the book, or choose to send it to your device via USB.
  • An active Wi-Fi connection is required for wireless delivery to a Kindle device.
  • If your Kindle is not Wi-Fi capable or you do not have an active Wi-Fi connection, read Amazon's instructions for transferring files via USB.

If you choose to purchase the book from the Kindle Store or check it out again at a later date, all of your notes and highlights will be preserved.
