I have several books loaded directly on my Kindle. I did not purchase them through Amazon. Is there a way to transfer them to my cloud reader?


Unfortunately, no.

If you try long-pressing on any books that you have on your device, it will allow you to add it to a collection, but this warning pops up, saying this will not sync the item to cloud.

  • Perhaps true at the time, now there's a work-around. – Thufir Mar 26 '18 at 18:54


Convert to .mobi with an online converter and attach it as an e-mail to yourself (foo@kindle.com). It will show in kindle.com/myk under "docs" (not "books") and be synced to your device.
