It’s easy to set up your Kindle to be able to receive e-books from Frank.
There are three steps:
- Find your Kindle’s email address.
- Set up your Kindle to be able to receive the e-books.
- Let Frank know your Kindle’s email address.
Step 1 – Find your Kindle’s email address
Each Kindle device has its own email address. However, any Kindle connected to your Amazon account can access any of the books in your library.
To find your Kindle’s email address, click here:
Once you’ve logged into your Amazon account, then a page called Manage Your Content and Devices will appear in your browser.
Scroll down that page until you find the section called Personal Document Settings. Like this:
You’ll see your Kindle device listed. If you have more than one connected to your Amazon account, you’ll see all of them listed.
You’ll also see an email address for each device.
But all you need is the email address for one of them. If your name was Frank, it would probably look like this:
Make a note of the email address you find there. You’ll need to send it to Frank.
That was easy! Now on to the next step.
Step 2 – Set up your Kindle to be able to receive the e-books
Now, you’ll need to make one change to your account so that Frank can send the book to you.
Scroll down just a little bit from where you were, until you see this:
Frank had a number of senders authorized to send him e-books. Your list will probably be empty.
To add a new authorized sender, click on the link that says Add a new approved e-mail address.
When the box opens, add firstname.lastname@example.org (be sure to include the pi after nickwilliams!).
Then click the button that says Add Address.
Now that’s done! The next and last part is the easiest.
Step 3 – Let Frank know your Kindle’s email address
In order to be able to send your e-book, Frank has to know what the email address for your device is.
And that’s simple, since you have it from Step 1!
Now, you can either contact Frank through this website and send it to him or reply back to whatever email he may have sent you.
Either way, you’ll be done!
