How to Download E-Books From the Computer to the Kindle
The Amazon Kindle supports a variety of e-book delivery methods, including downloading e-book files from your computer directly to the device through a USB cable. Because the Kindle acts as a USB drive when it is connected to a computer, transferring e-books to your device is as simple as dragging and dropping the files from your computer to the appropriate folder on your Kindle.
Connect the Kindle to your computer using the Kindle USB cable.
Click "Start" and select "Computer."
Double-click the Kindle icon and then open the "Documents" folder.
Drag and drop e-book files from your computer to the "Documents" folder to transfer the e-books to your Kindle.
Right-click the Kindle icon and select "Eject" when you have finished transferring e-books to your device.
