Please show me how to upload a document to my Kindle device in detail. What kind of tool should I use for uploading document to Kindle device?”

Amazon Kindle is a great eBook reader, but it’s tightly tied to Amazon’s ecosystem. Well, sort of using a bit of free software, you can take eBooks in the EPUB, Mobi, and PDF formats and zap them over to your Kindle lickety-split. Here’s how to do it.
