Amazon Send to Kindle now works on the web

Amazon Send to Kindle is a popular method of sending eBooks directly to your Kindle e-reader. The normal way it works is through a PC/MAC app for your computer, a Google Chrome extension, the Kindle apps for Android and iOS, and email. There is now a much easier method for sending books to your Kindle over the Internet. Amazon just developed Send to Kindle for the web, a new online tool that can send books in countless formats directly to your Kindle. This will probably be the easiest and most popular method going forward.

Send to Kindle for the Web allows users to send PDF, DOC, DOCX, TXT, RTF, HTM, HTML, PNG, GIF, JPG, JPEG, BMP, and EPUB files to the kindle send. The maximum size per file is 200 MB, which is the largest file size of any Send to Kindle system currently available. In the case of EPUB files, when you send that file to your Kindle, Amazon secretly converts the file to AZW, since Kindle e-readers have no native support to display EPUB books in their reading engine.

To use Send to Kindle for the web, you must log in to your Amazon account and have a Kindle e-reader associated with your account. When you drag and drop a book or use the file manager to browse your computer to find a file, the upload begins. It normally takes a few minutes for the book to be sent to the Amazon servers and then to your Kindle. Best of all, if the book has a cover, the cover will display properly on the Kindle.

Send to Kindle for the web currently works in some markets, such as the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
