How to find your Kindle books
If you’re wondering where your Kindle books are, the answer depends on a few factors. If you’re using a Kindle device, your books will be stored on the device itself. If you’re using the Kindle app on a phone or tablet, your books will be stored in the app. And if you’re reading Kindle books on a computer, they’ll be stored in the Amazon cloud.
To find your Kindle books on a Kindle device, just look on the home screen. Your books will be stored under the “Books” heading. If you can’t find them there, try looking in the “Docs” or “Cloud” sections.
To find your Kindle books in the Kindle app, open the app and tap the menu icon in the top-left corner. Then tap “My Library.” from there, you can tap “Device” to see the books that are stored on your phone or tablet, or tap “Cloud” to see the books that are stored in Amazon’s cloud.
To find your Kindle books on a computer, just go to Amazon’s website and log into your account. Then click “Your Account” and select “Manage Your Content and Devices.” From there, you’ll see a list of all of the Kindle books that are associated with your account.
Why your Kindle books are lost
If you’re wondering where your Kindle books are, it’s probably because they’re lost in the Bermuda Triangle (or, more likely, you accidentally deleted them). Here’s how to find out for sure and how to get them back if they are indeed gone.
When you delete a book from your Kindle, it doesn’t actually delete the book. Instead, it removes the book from your Device list so you can’t see it anymore. The book is still on your Amazon account and can be re-downloaded at any time.
To check if a book is truly lost or just hidden, go to Amazon.com and log in to your account. Click on “Manage Your Content and Devices” under “Your Account”. This will bring up a list of all the content (including books) that is associated with your account. If the book you’re looking for is on the list, it’s not lost; it’s just hidden from view on your device.

How to read Kindle books
If you’re wondering how to read your new Kindle books, this guide will help you get started. With a few taps, you can be reading any of the millions of books available in the Kindle Store.
To start reading, simply go to your Home screen and tap on a book cover. Once you’re in a book, Kindle will automatically open it to the last page you were reading—which makes it easy to pick up where you left off.
If you want to jump to a specific place, just tap the center of the screen to bring up the progress bar. From there, you can quickly move forward or backward by chapter, or use the slider at the bottom of the screen to jump to any page in the book.
To adjust your font size or background theme while reading, just tap on the Menu icon at the top-right of your screen (it looks like three dots). From there, you can customize just about anything—from the font size and type to how bright your screen is.
When you come across a word or phrase you don’t know, just long-press on it and Kindle will bring up its dictionary definition—or, if you’re reading in a foreign language, Wikipedia information about that term in your language of choice. Don’t worry about looking up words all the time—Kindle saves all the words and phrases you’ve looked up automatically, so you can review them later.
Finally, if you want to take some notes or highlight sections of text that are important to you, just press and hold on a word (or drag across multiple words) until a pop-up menu appears. From there, you can highlight text or add bookmarks and notes. All of your highlights and annotations are automatically saved and can be viewed later from within the “Notes & Highlights” section under “My Clippings.”
How to gift Kindle books
If you want to give someone a Kindle book as a gift, there are a few different ways to do it. The easiest way is to buy the book directly from Amazon and send it to the recipient’s email address. If you’re not sure what book your friend or family member would like, you can also buy them an Amazon gift card and let them choose their own books.
If you have a physical copy of the book you want to gift, you can also convert it into a Kindle format using Calibre and then send it to the recipient’s email address. Finally, if you know the recipients Kindle device serial number, you can also transfer the book directly to their device using USB.
How to manage your Kindle books
If you’re wondering where your Kindle books are, there are a few places you can look. First, try opening the Kindle app on your device. If you see a list of books under “On Device,” that means they’re stored locally on your Kindle.
You can also check the Cloud tab to see if your books are stored in Amazon’s cloud servers. To do this, tap the three lines in the top-left corner of the app, then tap “Cloud.” If you don’t see your books listed here, they may be stored in a different cloud account (like iCloud or Dropbox) that you’ve connected to your Kindle.
If you still can’t find your books, try searching for them by title or author. Tap the three lines in the top-left corner of the app, then tap “Search.” If your book shows up in the results, that means it’s stored on your device or in the cloud somewhere.
