You can have Amazon convert your documents so you can read them on your Kindle. This feature allows you to carry around PDF files and other documents, even some graphic files. There are two ways to do this.
Files can sent to the device email address listed in your Kindle’s settings. For a small fee, Amazon will convert and send the document to your Kindle via Whispernet.
Alternately, you can have Amazon convert your documents for free. Email your files to “name”@free.kindle.com. If your Kindle’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, address you will send to is email@example.com. The converted files will be delivered to the e-mail address associated with your Amazon.com account. You can then download the file to your Kindle’s document folder using your computer.
I use this feature a lot when I travel. I download a copy of my travel itinerary to my Kindle so that it will be handy while I am reading in the airport or on my flight. I also use this feature to carry around a copy of a manuscript or story I am working on so I can proofread it on my Kindle and check the formatting.
Advanced Tip: This feature can be used to receive documents and files from any email address on your approved email list. To access and manage this list, go to www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle.
