Forgive me for being stupid, if indeed this is a stupid question, but how do I get the Kindle Shorts onto my Kindle. I don’t want to read them on line. Thanks, Carol
Not stupid at all, Carol, and thanks for asking. Although I’ve experimented with several approaches to this, it is not feasible to email the file directly to the Kindles of the thousands of Kindle Nation citizens.
Instead, there is one easy, straightforward way to ensure you get Free Kindle Nation Shorts delivered directly to your Kindle in a nicely formatted presentation each week: just subscribe for 99 cents a month to the Kindle edition of Kindle Nation Daily. As you’ll see from the screen shot at the right, yesterday’s terrific Free Kindle Nation Short by Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff is displayed second from the top in the current lists of posts or articles, and is available in its magnificent 8,000 word entirety for reading or even for listening via the Kindle’s text-to-speech feature. And of course, you’ll also get all the other daily posts pushed right to your Kindle, including Free Book Alerts, bargain alerts, tips and news that are bound to get you back that 99 cents with plenty to spare.
If that doesn’t work for you, another alternative is to cut and paste a Free Kindle Nation Short into a word processing file and send it to your [you]@free.kindle.com address for conversion through Amazon.
