I do not have the app but you could try looking in /library, /library/caches, ~/library,~/library/caches.

Cheers.

~/Documents/My Kindle Content is where the Kindle for Mac books end up. They are also "named" according to their ASIN number, which makes it difficult to tell them apart just by looking at the filename.

Apparently Spotlight's indexes aren't always current/complete. For example, I use it to launch apps (most things take just 3-4 keystrokes), but an app that I've just installed often doesn't show up until I locate it in finder and launch it once from there. For file search, I've never trusted it.

But I have just learned that you can force it to re-index everything on a disk by going to Spotlight preferences, Privacy tab, adding the drive to the exclude list, then deleting it from the list. Takes a while to reindex, but when done, it should be 'better' - until it isn't.

I guess it depends on what keywords you type into Spotlight? If I type AZW (the file extension), then it lists several documents. If I move my mouse over the document name, then I see the file path ~/Documents/My Kindle Content.
