Add Kindle for pc books to Calibre.. HOW?

Quick question...

I have just downloaded Kindle for PC and added a free book from Kindle. I have calibre (with plugins) and wanted to add the kindle book I just downloaded onto it (to view it on calibre). But when I hit 'add books' the ones saved in 'kindle for PC' dont appear as an option to add.

Any ideas?

Thanks in anticipation.

after you press add books you need to navigate that window to the 'my kindle content' folder in 'my documents'.

Thanks for that.. I was lying in bed last night thinking... it must be somewhere in another folder, not just the 'kindle' on my desktop.

All sort.. cheers!!

I know this is an old thread - but what happens if the book you've purchased doesn't show up in the "my Kindle Content" folder?

I recently purchased a management kindle book from Amazon - and it shows up in my Kindle for PC app. Lets me view the book like normal etc, however there is no physical copy of the book on my computer (I've run searches for it).
The other 3 books that come standard with Kindle for PC have physical versions in the "my Kindle Content" folder... just not the new management book I downloaded.

Am at my whits end trying to figure out how I should go about this.

Then your content is being stored in a different folder. The options from within the Kindle app will show you where your content is being stored (and allow you to change it). Keep in mind that the file names for Kindle for PC books don't usually have the title of the book in them. They're usually the asin number with "_EBOK.azw". It's just not possible that a book you're able to read with the Kindle app doesn't physically reside on your computer.

Are you sure you haven't confused the Kindle app for the Kindle Cloud Reader (browser-based)? You won't be able to add a Cloud Reader book to calibre... even if you "download" it for offline reading. It's not a normal ebook file you can access.
