Additionally, there are some USB cables that are with charge-only feature. They have less pins, usually a lot cheaper or come with devices that are not made for a pc-device storage connection. For example, a Chinese cable for 0.99$ or a cable that came with a portable charger (power bank). I've come across quite a few of these in my life, they will not work ...

Calibre can transfer the book from your PC to Kindle.

Calibre, on the other hand allows one to edit epub books, convert between file types and generally maintain your ebook library on your computer. You can then send them to your various readers. Some of those features require removal of DRM to do but there are many public domain ebooks.

I asked the same question to an Amazon customer service. The answer I got was NO. I did recommended them to design a way to allow users to link their multiple accounts in whatever countries. What I'm doing now is using an Android simulator on my desktop computer, where I can run a separate Kindle app and use a different Kindle account. The Android ...

Yale University's Avalon Project has a great collection of free materials in the law, history, and diplomacy realm. Also, Amazon has lots of free Kindle versions of various works that are no longer under copyright protection. For example, you can find free Shakespeare materials here.

I don't have a Kindle Paperwhite, but I have used other Kindle devices. The cable is generic. Any matching cable should work. Most of my file transfer I did by sending the books as email attachments (downloading) rather than copying over USB (sideloading). Both worked for me. With USB I used a standard micro USB cable but not the one that shipped with ...

My answer shouldn't be treated as definitive, but I did google around a bit. One youtuber claims that he can access books from two accounts by logging off the device with his original account, logging on with the second account, downloading the ebooks locally, logging off again and then relogging with the original account. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

The screenshot is from my iMac but the principal is the same in Ubuntu. The azw3 files are actual book files. Older ones may have been .mobi files. Just highlight the ones you want and copy (control c) and paste (control v) where you want them. You can also delete them if you wish but I would leave any of the other files in each folder as they contain useful ...

[Note: I know this thread is old, but I found it via a web search and have an answer for people in the future who find it that way as well.] There does not appear to be a built-in app, menu item, or button that allows you to view the download queue. On my Kindle Fire HDX, however, I can swipe down from the top, and any in-progress downloads are shown in the ...

Yes. Once you've purchased the book, you can go to "My Books" and find the one you want to download. Below the thumbnail of the book cover there is a "..." menu which looks like this when expanded: Click "Download" and you'll be presented with a dialog: Now you can load the downloaded epub on any reader you like.

A download checker for Humble Bundle book bundles. Since there seems to be no answer from this community regarding an application meeting the request in my question, I decided to make one myself. When you buy a bundle from Humble Bundle, whether books or games, they send you a web link to a HTML page (which I call here the download page).. You can then ...

Simultaneous Device Usage: Unlimited is not a reliable indicator of DRM-free books. AFAIK, all free Public Domain books sold by Amazon Digital Services are DRM-protected. For example, this free Amazon book is listed as Simultaneous Device Usage: Unlimited, however it's not DRM-free. I am running Linux, if that can be any help. But I do not own a ...

You might find this article https://www.52novels.com/from-the-ebook-formatting-files-why-is-my-mobi-file-so-huge/ and this post to be helpful. How can I reduce the resolution of images in an epub or mobi file? From the first article: Amazon understands this is unfair. After all, it prefers high-quality ebooks that play nicely with the various Kindle ...

some older versions of Calibre use a legacy Kobo driver. most distros aren't up-to-date as Calibre is developed quite extensively and often. I suggest installing Calibre from the developer's site. I owned a Kobo Aura, and the version of Calibre that Ubuntu shipped at the time failed me... I installed from the site, and problem solved. good luck. https://...

In a nutshell One way to make visible epub files copied directly on the Kobo file system is to use the Kobo browser once afterwards to download an epub file from the web. Context I did some more experimenting on my own, and finally succeeded, though I did not explore the precise boundaries of what can work and what will not work. I am giving details, so ...

If you're using Calibre, switch to your "Device": Select the books that are not in your Calibre library (i.e., the ones without the check mark), right-click and then click "Add books to library": That's particularly useful if you have some books on Kindle that you didn't have in your library, thus you don't have to check which ones are missing, neither ...
