Amazon Kindle

Kindle ebook readerAll Baen’s Ebooks are available in Kindle format for direct use. To download them, follow these steps:

Emailing books directly to your Kindle

Depending on which Kindle you are using and how you are connecting to the Internet, Amazon may charge a modest fee for emailing an Ebook to your Kindle. For US customers, the fee is 15 cents for 1 MB of data (almost all of our Ebooks are less than 1 MB). For non-US customers, the fee is 99 cents for 1 MB of data.

To authorize Amazon to email Baen Ebooks to your device, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Amazon Kindle account at Amazon Kindle Manager.
  2. Go to Your Kindle approved email list, and add the following address: @baenebooks.com.

For more information about Amazon fees, check out the Kindle section in our Ereader Instructions.


Attention customers using Kindles with 3G

If you select the option to “Email book to my Kindle” and are connecting using the 3G network via Whispersync, Amazon will charge you. For US customers, the fee is 15 cents for 1 MB of data (almost all of our eBooks are less than 1 MB). For non-US customers, the fee is 99 cents for 1 MB of data.

At present, only Kindle users who take advantage of the 3G Whispersync capabilities incur this fee; an Ebook that Amazon delivers via WiFi incurs no fee. However, Amazon reserves the right to charge for their services at any time. Note that Whispersync is not available in Canada.
