How to Archive Kindle Books

Holding 3,500 books at once, an Kindle 3 is like your own personal library in your hand. As an avid reader, you may not be able to resist buying books, reading sample chapters and downloading free classical literature, such as "War and Peace" and the "Complete Works of William Shakespeare." But, just because you can store so many books on your Kindle doesn't mean you should. Keep your Kindle library organized by moving, or archiving, books to the Amazon server once you have finished reading them. By archiving a book, you remove it from your Kindle. At any point in time, you can retrieve the book from Amazon's server and re-read it on your Kindle.

Step 1

Press the "Home" button on your Kindle.

Step 2

Scroll down with the controller until you underline, or highlight, the book you want to archive.

Step 3

Press the left arrow button on the controller. The Kindle will display the message "Remove from Device."

Press the middle button on the controller. The Kindle removes the book from your book list and deletes it from the Kindle. The book is permanently stored on Amazon's servers for you to retrieve in the future. You can find your book by looking in your "Archived Items" folder.



  • Your annotations for the archived book are stored in the "My Clippings" file on your Kindle.


  • Amazon does not archive personal documents that you transferred to your Kindle. Before deleting personal documents, make sure that you have backed them up to a USB drive or your computer.

Kindle for PC

Electronic books have changed the public's reading habits, and millions worldwide now read books, magazines, and other content on handheld readers like Amazon's Kindle. A lot of work went into making Kindle as book-like as possible while still preserving the advantages of an electronic device, such as a customizable interface, variable type size, notes, data storage, and more. Kindle for PC is freeware that lets you access your Kindle titles without a Kindle device. Its Whispersync feature automatically syncs your last page read, bookmarks, notes, and settings between a wide range of compatible devices.

Installing and setting up Kindle for PC is a snap if you already own a Kindle or have an account: just enter your ID and password, and Kindle for PC opens with your account in place. Clicking Archived Items accesses your saved titles. Kindle for PC works much like the handheld device, with a basic but quite user-friendly interface, simple controls, and PC-specific features, such as an outlined graphic that pops up with helpful instructions for using the mouse to do what you do with your fingers on the handheld device. We clicked Shop in the Kindle Store to add some titles; you can buy e-books, but there are literally millions of free titles available to download through directly to your Kindle or, as we discovered, to Kindle for PC, from sites like the Open Library, Internet Archive, and Gutenberg Project. We didn't need to look past the first page to select "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A few clicks, and the e-book was in our Archive. We opened it and immediately began to read a facsimile of the first story, "A Scandal in Bohemia." Navigation was easy with the scroll wheel or by clicking either of the Back and Forward arrows that appeared to the left and right of the text when we hovered our mouse there. Clicking the Font icon on the toolbar let us quickly and easily change font size, words per line, color mode, and brightness, which is welcome since e-books vary in text quality, layout, and contrast. Kindle's bookmarks never fall out, unlike magazine coupons and other improvised paper bookmarks. is pushing Kindle as nothing less than the future of reading, and it's got a good start on that ambitious goal. Kindle for PC brings your home PC, laptop, and other non-Kindle devices into the loop, and without losing your place.

Hi, I have just joined the archive and have downloaded a book for Kindle. How do I get the file onto my kindle? I have searched the faq page but cannot find an answer. Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

I am new too. I ran across this from Amazon. Your Kindle is evermore being made easier to use...even for free content.

Internet Archive is a non-profit dedicated to offering permanent access to historical collections that exist in digital format. Provides over 2.5 million free ebooks to read, download, and enjoy.

1. Visit

2. Search for a title or browse one of the sub-collections like American Libraries.

3. When viewing a title, click the link on the left labeled "Kindle" to download the file to your computer.

4. Attach your Kindle to your computer using your USB cable and drag the file to the "Documents" folder on your Kindle. You can also e-mail the file to your Kindle using Whispernet for wireless delivery (charges may apply).

5. Open the ebook from your Kindle's home screen and enjoy.

I would, however, like to add some info that may make your first download easier than mine.

Connect your kindle to your computer.

Download the book you would like.

When it is downloaded i had the choice of opening it in it's file. Do this. The item highlighted will be your book (if you have an operating system similar to mine.

Then just simply drag that item over to the Kindle folder on the left and hover over "Internal Storage". You will have a menu of places to "put" your item. Amazon suggests the Docs folder. I did this with a few books now and am happy with the result. of course I cannot tell you how to put these in the cloud. The clouds are a bit over my head. lol. Happy reading. And, I have to add, Yay Kindle.

Email it to yourself on your Amazon account (if you have one).
