Read Mobi eBooks on Kindle for PC
Do you use your PC as a eBook reader? Kindle for PC makes it easy to read thousands of books from the Kindle Store on your computer. What you may not
know is that is also works with .mobi format too, so you can increase the amount of books you can read.
Amazon has jumpstarted the eBook market with their popular Kindle device. Last fall Amazon unveiled Kindle for PC, and we reviewed how you can
Read Kindle Books On Your Computer with Kindle for PC.
Whether or not you own a Kindle or other eBook reader, this is a great way to take advantage of the thousands of eBooks available from the Kindle Store
today. It supports azw, prc, and tpz format, which are sold from the Kindle store, but it also supports Mobipocket (.mobi) eBooks that are not DRM protected.
Here’s how you can add them to Kindle for PC so you can easily read them on your PC
First, make sure you have Kindle for PC (link below) installed on your computer.
Sign in with your Amazon account when you first run it.
Kindle for PC lets you easily read eBooks downloaded from the Kindle Store, but it doesn’t have any way to add other eBooks directly from the program.
To add eBooks, you can sometimes download and double-click on the books, and they will open in Kindle for PC and be automatically added to the library.
However, this does not always seem to work.
So instead, browse to your Documents folder (simply click on the Documents link on your Start menu), and double-click on the My Kindle Content folder.
This folder contains all the Kindle books you have downloaded. If you have other eBooks you would like to add to Kindle for PC, simply drag-and-drop or
copy and paste them into this folder. Now, close and reopen Kindle for PC. It should now show your new eBook right beside the eBooks you have downloaded from the Kindle Store. These eBooks work just the same as the ones downloaded from the Kindle store, and you can change font size and add bookmarks just as with other eBooks.
I believe it will also support the .PDF format, as well as word documents. if it will work with the accessibility plugin. I just downloaded the Kindle for PC with accessibility plugin, to read a book that was recommended to me.
