    The next page will tell you the status of your download. If you have a WiFi kindle, it will inform you that the eBook will be downloaded onto your device the next time it syncs. If you don’t have a WiFi device, the page will inform you and give you the option to download the file to your computer, and give some simple instructions on transferring it to your Kindle.

    The “learn more” link (circled above) will give you instructions on transferring your eBook to your Kindle via your computer. Quick summary of those instructions: You’ll have to plug the USB cable into your Kindle (small end) and your computer (large end, which also connects to the power adapter). Your computer will detect your Kindle (as a new drive called Kindle) and allow you to view the folders on it. Place the eBook file that you downloaded from the Amazon website into the “documents” folder on the Kindle drive. You can do that by dragging the file you downloaded to the documents folder on the Kindle drive or by downloading directly to it. Once the file is there, you can disconnect your Kindle and read your eBook.
