The question seemed simple “Can I send a PDF file to my Kindle?” Of course my first course of action was to ask the great oracle that is Google. The first page of potential answers contained those comforting words “easy” and “simple”, that should have sent the klaxons of doom going off at ear splitting decibels.
Apparently it’s just three manageable steps. 1 make sure your email is added to the accepted list in ‘manage devices & settings’ [done] 2 find your kindle’s email [done]. 3 send email with attachment from your accepted email to your kindle email [done] …… Aaaaand ta-da, all done.
But it didn’t.
Of course, it didn’t, any “easy and simple” instructions aren’t.
Back to Google, read through another dozen articles all giving the same three instructions. Try them again, still no document appearing on kindle screen. Scroll through the archive list on Amazon (all two hundred and twenty titles) incase it gets put there [nope]. Read through another few articles, consider an online chat to find out the all important vital fourth step that’s missing. Turn over and sleep on it.
Next day, look for answers on Google again, find a little added extra some add to step 3 put ‘convert’ into email subject line. Step 4 Check ‘Doc’s’ on archive lists on Amazon ‘Manage devices & settings”. Step 5 send from archive to required device.
Guess what………………………..It worked!!!
It’s not just me, Is its? Not because I’m getting older and technology is getting younger?
