How to Load eBooks onto your Kindle

If you've just bought an ebook from the ReAnimus store, thanks! Now you'll want to load it onto your Kindle.

It's easy! Here's how:

From your Kindle Web Browser

  1. Use your Kindle's web browser to surf to the ReAnimus store, enter your transaction ID in the Returning Customers box, and download the .MOBI file directly to your device.

(Note there's no charge if you do this using WiFi, but there may be a charge if you're using the Kindle's 3G/Whispernet to browse and download on a Kindle.)

OR: From your PC

  1. Download to your computer the .MOBI format of the ebook you purchased.
  2. Connect your Kindle to your computer using the USB cord that came with it. It will connect to your computer like any USB / flash drive.
  3. Drag and drop the .MOBI file into the folder named 'documents' on your Kindle.

Disconnect the Kindle like you would any USB drive and voila! your new book is in your library.

OR: Email it to Your Kindle

  1. Download to your computer the file for the ebook you just purchased. (Get the .MOBI file.)
  2. Send it as an attachment in email to your official Kindle email address.

    (If this is your first time doing this, there are two things you need to do first: (i) Find your Kindle email address. click here to read about your Kindle email address. It will look something like username@free.kindle.com and is found in Home > Menu > Settings > Device Email. There is also a fee-based email address without the "free." in the address that uses 3G/Whispernet. (ii) Approve the sending email address. Before Amazon will accept email attachments sent to your Kindle you must first add the sending email address to your Approved Personal Document E-mail List. If this link doesn't take you directly there, go to "Manage your Kindle", click on "Personal Document Settings" under "Your Kindle Account", and scroll down to "Approved Personal Document E-mail List." Click on "Add a new approved e-mail address." After you've done these two steps you won't need to do them again.)

OR: Have ReAnimus Email it to Your Kindle

  1. Add store@ReAnimus.com to your Approved Personal Document E-mail List if you haven't already. (If this link doesn't take you directly there, go to "Manage your Kindle", click on "Personal Document Settings" under "Your Kindle Account", and scroll down to "Approved Personal Document E-mail List." Click on "Add a new approved e-mail address.")
  2. Surf to the ReAnimus store, enter your transaction ID in the Returning Customers box, and enter your Kindle email address in the Kindle email form next to the cover image of the book you purchased.
  3. Wait 5-10 minutes for Amazon to process it. It should appear in "Your Kindle Library" online, and sync'd directly to the Kindle device you emailed it to within a few minutes. It should also appear on your Kindle in it's Archive area.)

OR: Use Amazon's "Send to Kindle" Software

  1. Download to your computer the file for the ebook you just purchased. (Get the .MOBI file.)
  2. If you haven't already, install the Send to Kindle software from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/sendtokindle (As of this writing, only Windows is supported.)
  3. Right click on the .MOBI file you downloaded, and choose the "Send to Kindle" option on the pop-up menu.

Enjoy!
