Install Kindle for PC

Kindle for PC installation instructions

A few people have asked how they can read my book on their computer if they don’t have a Kindle or Nook, so here’s how to do it.   Also please read on to get a free copy of “Invasion of Privacy and Other Short Stories.”

The first thing you need is a free account with Amazon.  If you already have one, then log in and skip to step 4.

  1. If you don’t already have a free one, click here to go to Click on the “Sign In to Your Account” button on the upper right which takes you to the “Sign In” page.
  2. Enter your email address, and where is says , “Do you have a password?” Click “No, I’m a new customer.” Then hit the “Sign in” button.
  3. This takes you to a page where you enter your name, and retype your email address. Skip the option to add your phone number, then enter a password that is at least 6 characters long, you’ll have to enter it twice, then click the “Create Account” button.
  4. Come back here and then click this link: download the Kindle for PC app. and follow the instructions. If you’re asked to “Run or Save” the program, choose “Run.” It will download and then the Kindle app will open automatically once it’s done. If your browser automatically saves the file, you’ll have to double click it once it’s downloaded to run it.
  5. Now you have a way to read Kindle books on your PC.  All the books you get from Amazon will appear on your bookshelf when you open it.

Free Offer!

Invasion of Privacy is available free on Amazon.

Once it’s finished downloading, it should open up in your Kindle for PC app. The other formats will have to be side-loaded to your reader.

I hope this works for you, let me know if you have any problems, I’m glad to help.

Thanks, I hope you enjoy it.

    After reading your book, I will choose appropriate categories so you’re book can rank in the top 100.

    GREAT NEWS on your publishing I of P etc!

    I’ve already gotten a Kindle acct. and will dl the app asap. I’d just submitted a collection of short stories, of which you are familiar, as a testing of the Kindle waters and am currently on “In Review” status.

    I’m looking forward to seeing your latest effort and am sure that mine will currently pale in comparison to yours in execution. I had trouble applying the Table of Contents linkage and will likely need some sober tweaking.

    Glad to see that you still have the fever!
    See you soon Brotherrrrr!

      Hi Scott, great to hear from you.
      That’s exciting news, I look forward to reading your stories.
      Making a table of contents can be a real pain. Have you read, “Smashwords Style Guide,” by Mark Coker? It’s free on, here’s a link: It covers everything about formatting your eBook, including the TOC. It really helped me a lot.

      Keep in touch, talk to you soon,

    Hi Jim,

    Thank you for this post. I personally love to read e-books and since i lost my kindle, i have no access to my ebooks. This will at least help me to read books until i can replace my kindle book.
