    Quick question for Kindle owners.

    If I have a book in a Kindle format on my PC that works on the Kindle Reader for PCs, can it be transferred to an actual Kindle?

    Or do all Kindle books need to be downloaded via Amazon?

    I am working on a Kindle version of Get Out While You Can, but want to make sure the formatting is right. Easiest way is to buy a Kindle for myself, but don't want to if it isn't possible to transfer files to it from my PC.

    Not sure, it's not something I've ever had to do! Unfortunately I don't have a PC running windows, otherwise I'd have checked it out for you.

    @Dave - thanks mate - I know it was a bit of a strange one!

    @Sussexite - exactly what I needed to know. I was a bit worried it would look okay on a PC, but look different on an actual Kindle. Now I will be able to see for myself. Kindle ordered!

    Hope you enjoy your kindle.

    I'm really pleased with mine - a great bit of kit.

    Can anyone else vouch for the Kindle? I'm going to need one for my travels quite soon!

    Seeing more and more people with them on the bus and train now tempted myself are they just a black and white screen though if so may look a budget android tablet and throw on the Kindle software.
