Lily to the rescue! Here’s our simple guide to help you load our reads onto nearly any device…

To get started, select your device:

How to upload a .mobi file to your Kindle

You can put .mobi files onto your Kindle through the USB cord that came with your device.

  1. First, get on your computer if you’re not there already. This process won’t work from a phone or tablet.
  2. Open the .zip folder you downloaded at our site by double-clicking on it. You should now see 4 different files (BookTitle.mobi, BookTitle.epub, BookTitle.pdf, DownloadInstructions.pdf). The only one you need for this process is BookTitle.mobi.
  3. Now, get that USB cord and connect both ends, one on your Kindle and the other to your computer.
  4. Once the Kindle is connected, you should get a prompt window showing the options you can perform with your device. Choose the option to view the files on the device. If you don’t get a prompt, don’t worry. It happens sometimes. Just go to My Computer (Finder on Mac) and click on your Kindle device to open its internal storage.
  5. From there, go to either the “Books” or “Documents” folder and either copy & paste OR drag & drop the .mobi file (from step 2) straight into that folder. It might take a couple seconds for the books to appear on your Kindle, so just be patient.
