Make sure you are viewing your Bookshelf by clicking on Bookshelf on the right of the screen. Then click on the Download button next to your title.

Check the box next to Kindle Book, then click on Confirm & Download.

A new tab or window will open in your browser, which puts you on the Amazon website. Click on the Get library book button.

Log in to the Amazon account that you have registered your Kindle device or Kindle app with.

Choose the Kindle device or app you want to send the ebook to. If you need to transfer the title via USB, choose Transfer via Computer. (Kindle books can be delivered to your Kindle device or app over wifi, but not over 3G.)

This screen displays to confirm that the title has been delivered to your Kindle device or app. Refresh or sync your device or app with your Amazon account and the book should appear.

If you need to transfer the title via USB, click on the Download now button and keep reading for further instructions.

How to transfer Kindle titles to your Kindle device via USB

Drag the ebook file into your Documents folder. Now you can disconnect your Kindle from the computer. The book should show up on the home screen of your Kindle.
