    2. login here
    3. Select the eBook on that you would like to read. Let's use "Dark Earth" as an example)
    4. Click on the blue "Send to Kindle" button - you will be asked to enter the username of your Kindle device.
    5. To determine what your Kindle's device email address is, please open another browser window and visit: and login to your account.
    6. The next page you see will be "Your Kindle Library" and a menu on the left hand side of the page.
    7. Please locate the link that says "Personal Document Settings" and click on it.
    8. At the top of the next page, you should see a section entitled "Send-to-Kindle Email Settings"
    9. Take note of the "name" portion of the email address associated with your device. (e.g. "name"
    10. Further down that same page, there should be a section entitled: "Approved Personal Document E-mail List".
    11. Click on the link to "Add a new approved e-mail address" and add "" to the list.
    12. Go back to the book listing page on (in our example: "Dark Earth) and enter the "name" portion from step 10 so that the username looks something like "" and click the "Send to Kindle" button once more.
    13. Wait 1 to 15 minutes for a notification message at your registered email address. You do NOT need to click any links or take any actions mentioned in this email; realistically this email only serves to let you know the book will automatically be sent to you Kindle
    14. Connect your Kindle to your wireless network if not already connected
    15. Return to your Kindle's home screen and check your book listing to see if your title has arrived.
    16. If after 15 minutes, your title still has not arrived, select "Sync and check for new items" in the menu from your Kindle home screen to force a sync.
