How do I sideload my Mobi e-book file onto my Kindle Fire?

To sideload Kindle Fire with access to a computer, follow these steps:

Connect the Kindle Fire to a computer using a mini USB to USB cord.

Download the e-book file on your computer.

From a file explorer program, open Kindle.

Note: This will show as a temporary drive.

Open the folder on the computer with the file.

Drag the e-book file from the computer to the Kindle Fire Books directory.

Safely disconnect the device from the computer. The book will now be saved in the Kindle Fie Books tab.

To sideload using only the Kindle Fire, follow these steps:

Download the e-book file to the Kindle Fire through a browser or through email.

Download and install a file explorer program.

Example: ES File Explorer from the Amazon app market.

From the file explorer, find and copy the book file. The book file will be in the main Kindle directory.

Go to the Books folder.

Paste the file. When using ES Explorer, select Operations and then select paste.

Restart your Kindle Fire. The e-book should display in the Books tab.
