I have just purchased a Kindle book from Amazon and told it to download it to my PC. I can open it and read it offline so it must have it stored somewhere but I can't find it. I'm using Win7 and looked in C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Local\Amazon\Kindle and according to what I read there should be a folder content under the Kindle folder. But there is not one. I opened Kindle for PC and can read the book OK even with the internet connection turned off. All my books are epubs but I could not find this one as an epub or else that is what I would have done. This appears to be very cumbersome.

  • The Kindle cannot read EPUB format, you must convert to .mobi; you can then send those to your kindle. FYI. – Thufir Apr 4 '18 at 8:07
  • try also http://www.amazon.com/myk and put it into a collection. then sync your kindle -- should be good to go. I thought you were asking about EPUB for some reaons. – Thufir Apr 20 '18 at 20:51

found the location of the files in the tools menu.


C:\Users(your user name)\Documents\My Kindle Content

  • That's not where mine is. I can't find 'em. – pulp1 Oct 3 '20 at 4:11
