I wanted to read a book which was freely available from Project Gutenberg on my Android using Amazon’s Kindle app. Generally Project Gutenberg provides its eBooks in several different format including a Kindle format.
I tried opening the eBook’s page using my Android phone but when I tried to download it the browser told me that the content was supported.
After a bit of searching on the net I discovered the answer is to copy the eBook file to the kindle directory on my sdcard.
The detailed steps are:
1) Download the .mobi file from Project Gutenberg.
2) Connect your Android device to your PC.
3) Tap at the very top of the screen and drag your finger down. Tap USB Connected and then tap Mount.
4) Copy the .mobi file to the kindle directory on your sdcard.
