Kindle App for PC

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I was reading your reply to one of your fans and you mentioned that you have a kindle app on your laptop computer.

I do not own a smart phone or tablet but I do have a Kindle for reading my favorite books. Since I know nothing of apps, I figured I’d ask you as you have helped me many times in the past. (Thank you.)

How do I get the Kindle app and how do I put it on my computer?

Thanks in advance for all your advice.


Dear Margaret,

You can actually download the Kindle app for your computer directly from Amazon.

Head on over to and find the list on the left that says, “Shop by Department”.

In that list, hover your mouse over, “Kindle Books & E-readers”.

Under, “Apps & Resources” click on the link that says, “Free Kindle Reading Apps”.

You will see a list of all the available devices that you can get an app for. Under “Computers” click on your operating system, either Mac, Windows 8 or Windows 7, XP and Vista.

Note: even though I have a Windows 8 computer, I use the Windows 7 Kindle app because I like the way it works much better than the Windows 8 version.

Click on the “Download Now” button to download and then install your Kindle Reader. There will be illustrated directions once you click the, “Download Now” button.
