Sideloading ebook Files

If you’ve received a .mobi or .epub file from us, you’ll need to transfer that file to your eReader. To transfer the file to your device, follow the instructions below. Please contact us if you need more information.


To load the Kindle file (.mobi) on any Kindle device or in any Kindle app, first upload it to the Kindle Personal Documents Service. This service will allow the file to be treated like any Kindle book you purchase from Amazon, including syncing your bookmarks, reading location, highlights, etc. between your devices.

Another way to get the .mobi file to your Kindle is to plug the Kindle into your computer using the Kindle’s USB cable. A folder for the Kindle device will open on your desktop. At that point, drag the .mobi file into the “documents” folder on the Kindle device. After the file is transferred, disconnect the Kindle from the computer.


To load the EPUB file in iBooks on an iPad/iPhone, etc., add it to your iTunes library choosing File > Add to Library, or drag the EPUB file to the Books library in iTunes on your computer. Then just sync your device with iTunes to add the book to your iBooks library. Alternatively, you can visit the book download page on our website in your iPad browser (Safari, etc.) and click on the download link. That will open up a dialog on your device asking if you want to load the file in iBooks.
