Transferring Library eBooks to the Kindle

  • The current version of the Kindle is the third generation. 
  • (The new Kindles to be shipped next month will be the fourth generation.)
  • The third generation has wi-fi OR wi-fi AND cellular (3G). This will allow you to wirelessly send the library eBook to your Kindle.
