The Kindle is the hottest eBook reader on the market today. Over 60 million people own this amazing device, which can be used at home, in the office, or anywhere in between. The Kindle has very small LCD display but allows you to easily read large amounts of text. It is great for travelers and students who want to have all of their books on their Kindle while they are on the road. But if you own your own Kindle, you know that it isn’t enough.
If you own a Kindle, you know that you need a lot of books, especially if you use it to read books that are priced over twenty dollars. Fortunately, there are many ways to expand the Kindle’s storage so that you never run out of space for your current books. There are three easy steps you can take to add more books to your Kindle. These steps are easy to do, require no extra hardware, and will save you hundreds of dollars in Kindle costs.
The first step to adding free ebooks to your Kindle is to sign up for an account at Amazon. You will need to provide your full name, address, email address, credit card number, and payment information. Once you sign up, you will be able to add three dots onto your Amazon account, which is the number for creating a free Kindle. This process will only take a few minutes and is totally free.
The second step is to connect your Kindle to your computer. To do this, you will need to insert the micro-USB device into your computer. Once the Kindle has been plugged in, you will see an icon on the screen that says “sters.” Click this icon. This will open up the Kindle app. If you don’t see this icon, then your Kindle does not have access to the Amazon application.
Tap the “Books” option on the left-hand navigation panel and search for “Goodreads.” You should see a list of books that Goodreads has available in PDF format. Now click on any one of the books that you want to download and follow the simple steps that will be displayed. When you are done, you will be asked to confirm that you want to download the book.
Tap “Open,” then “Search.” Use the arrow keys to locate the ebooks that you wish to download. Tap the plus sign next to the word “Free.” Tap the folder that appears to expand. You will now see a drop down menu, which will display your current book collection:
Tap “Eject,” then “Mount.” Your device will now be connected to your computer via the micro-USB port. Open the project Gutenberg application, then tap the “Create eBook” option. A window will appear, with a title reading “My Kindle.” Save the document and you can continue building your book collection.
When your work is completed, your device will prompt you to save it. Tap “Save File,” then “Share.” Your ebook is now saved onto your device, ready to be given away to your friends. The only thing left to do is give this gift away! It is quite easy to connect your My Kindle to your Wi-Fi network and share your free ebooks with family and friends all over the world.
After connecting your Kindle to your computer via the USB port, if you did not previously install the application, follow the steps above to register your device. If you did install the application, but it came with a factory reset, follow the steps above again to unplug your device. Once you have completed the task, open the Wi-Fi settings on your computer. Then, tap on “Secure Wi-Fi Connection” and follow the instructions.
Once you have finished scanning your device for bookmarks, you will then see a pane on the left side of your screen with three horizontal lines. The bottom line will display “My Kindle Scanning….”, while the top line will display “Goodreads Installed.” If you need to register your device, use the rectangular symbol closest to the “Goodreads” icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
In the next step, you should click on “Remove Manage Manages” tab, then click “OK”. You should see two icons, one of them will be the “Goodreads logo”, the other will be a gray rectangle. Tap on “enable scan”, and then, on the next page, tap on “scan”. When you have completed the process, you will then see menus pop up. Tap on “manage” and then, on the “Manage Directory” tab, choose “Books”.
