The Kindle is a superb device on which to read not only books, but also documents and other content that you come across on the Internet. So if the Kindle offers such a superb reading experience, then why not read documents other than just books on the Kindle? Let’s take a look at some of the best ways to send documents, PDFs, or any article from the web straight to your Kindle device or Kindle app on your smartphone and tablet.
Using your Kindle Email Address
Perhaps this is the most simple and straightforward method to send readable content to your Kindle. Go to this page and then from the left sidebar, click on the “Personal Document Settings” link. You’ll now be able to see an email address under the “Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings” section. As instructed on this page, you can email your documents to this address.
This email address would be something like email@example.com. Now, if you want to send your DOC, PDF, HTML, RTF or any other supported file, then simply attach that document to an email and send it to your Kindle email address (firstname.lastname@example.org, in the above example). Once you do this, you’ll be able to see the document in your Kindle library on your device.
The best part is that this is a very convenient and quick method, plus even your friends can send content that they think is worth reading to your Kindle. However, if you want your friends to send documents, then you’ll need to first add that email address in your “Approved Personal Document Email List.” As per Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), this is done in order to prevent spam.
Using “Send to Kindle”
Here’s yet another solution to send content to your Kindle. “Send to Kindle” is available for desktop on PC and Mac (as an extension for Chrome and Firefox), Android devices, and also for website owners. Check out all these options from here.
You can use any of your preferred methods from these different options. But if you’ve got too many documents on your computer that you want to send to your Kindle, then installing the Send to Kindle desktop app is a good choice. If, however, you want to send articles from the web to your Kindle, then installing the extension for Chrome and Firefox is a nice option for that.
There are many other methods to send content to your Kindle, but above, we have discussed the two best official methods in which you don’t need to use any third-party apps. Once you send those documents or articles from the web, you should be able to see them whenever you turn on your Kindle device. So go ahead and enjoy reading on your Kindle!
