    Amazon Kindle 2nd Generation devices 

    EPUB files can’t be read on the Amazon Kindle™. However, like most eReaders, Kindle™ 2nd Generation devices are able to display PDFs. We recommend that you download the PDF version of this booklet if you would like to read it on a Kindle™.

    To transfer a PDF to your Kindle™ via USB cable from your computer or Mac:

    • download the PDF directly onto your computer.
    • connect the USB cable to your computer’s USB port, and the micro USB end of the cable to your Kindle™. Note: the Kindle™ won’t be available as a reading device while it is connected to your computer until it has been disconnected.
    • open the Kindle™ drive and several folders will appear inside. The “Documents” folder is where you will need to copy or drag the PDF to.
    • safely eject your Kindle™ from your computer and unplug the USB cable. Your content will appear on the Home Screen.

    Kindle also provides a Kindle Personal Documents Service that allows users to send documents as an attachment directly to your eReader. For more information on this service, click here
