Question Add Ebooks Converted To .Mobi To Android Kindle App

Add Ebooks Converted To .Mobi To Android Kindle App.
I have a few mobi files on my pc that I wanted to read in the Kindle App on Android on my Nexus 7.
I put them in the Kindle folder on my computer But they don't seem to be recognised on my Kindle Android App
What am I missing, do they not sync am I doing it wrong?

Try doing it via Calibre. I've just moved a couple of non-Amazon books to the Android Kindle app on my phone. When you connect your device to your PC Calibre asks for permission to manage it. After agreeing you just need to select the books and click on the Send to Device button.

Put them in the Kindle folder on your Android device, not a folder on your computer.

I don't think books will sync between devices unless you buy them from Amazon and they are in your Kindle Archive (on Amazon's servers).

If that's what you're asking.

I believe there may be a way around this for books not bought from Amazon by using Calibre, but I'm a bit unsure of the exact details.

There is a feature is called the Personal Documents Cloud for that and you get 5GB of space to upload books or docs to. They become part of your Archive and will sync between devices. There is no need to sideload them using USB anymore. You can email or use Send to Kindle from your PC to upload them to the Cloud then access them on any Kindle or Kindle app.

Just go to your Manage Your Kindle page on Amazon's Site and set up your Personal Documents Email address then you can email the books to your Kindle App and they will sync on all Kindles and Kindle apps.

Thanks for the advice Blossom. I managed to get some of my non Amazon books into my archive and I can read them in the Kindle app on my phone and tablet and they keep synchronised.

However if I go to my laptop and open the Kindle Cloud Reader I only find the books from Amazon in the Cloud. Shouldn't I be able to view my added books from any Cloud Reader running in a browser without having to authorize each PC?

Thanks.

Brian

Amazon Cloud Reader doesn't have this feature neither does Kindle For PC. It only works on the apps and Kindle devices.

That's a shame but perhaps one day Amazon will add this feature for those of us who like to read at work during breaks & lunchtime on our work PC.

Thanks anyway.

To get Kindle for Android to recognize the ebooks
this worked for me on a Samsung Tab 2-10.1
convert ebook to azw3 (use Calibre)
connect Tablet to PC
go to the tablet's folders
Tablet/Android/data/com.amazon.kindle/files
Install the AZW3 ebooks into this ""files" folder

All done
