..and didn't have a problem converting it to an Epub. I also got it sent to both my Kindle HD 10, and Kindle 7". My problem is getting it to show up in my Kindle Reader for PC.

Here's what I've done so far.

Downloaded Calibra (and have a lot to learn about that)
Used Calibra to convert my .pdf book to epub.
It's in the "authors" tab (see attached)

I can't figure out how to get the book to show up in my Kindle for Desktop. Can someone help me? I checked with Amazon and they said they don't have emails for Desktop PC at this time so I can't just send it to my PC that way.

Thank you in advance for any help, Denise

The Kindle app won't read ePub, which is the first issue. It needs to be the correct format for the Kindle app.

Put it in the folder that holds your Kindle books on the computer. Or right click and use Open With...select the Kindle app.

The PC Kindle app has never had the @Kindle email address.

Oh brother, I made a mistake. Forgot I didn't get that App in the Microsoft Store. I think I downloaded it from Amazon. I'll go see if it's stored somewhere else

I think I'll get another "reader" that has nothing to do with Amazon. Sorry, should ask if anyone knows of a "reader" for PC that I can download/upload books I buy anywhere online?

Sure appreciate any help. Meanwhile, I know you have some threads here on "readers", pretty sure I can find some info there as well

What exactly is it you're wanting to do? I think you're mixing up several different things...

You're right, I'm not even sure where I should have posted this.

I wanted to use a "reader" like my Kindle for PC. I see the Calibre works "ok" but are there any other desktop readers I might try that have more options?

It's ok Apache because I convert them to Epubs The Freda program works good, except I can't figure how to get just one column. I'll show you how my text looks in an attachment and when you have the time, you could maybe let me know what you think?
