Transferring your Tortoise
e-book to your Kindle can be a wee bit tricky. Here’s what you need to do…

Amazon has given you a “Send to Kindle” email address. You can find it in your Kindle account settings. If you attach a Kindle-formatted e-book to an email and send it to this address, it will be loaded onto your Kindle.


As a security precaution, Amazon won’t let just anyone send e-books to your Kindle. So if you haven’t done it before, you will need to add your normal email address to the list of allowed emails.


To do this, login to your Amazon account on the web, and go to “Personal Document Settings” under “Manage Your Content and Devices”. Under “Approved Personal Document E-mail List” click on “Add a new approved e-mail address” and add your usual email address. You only ever have to do this once.


Now you can use this link to download the Kindle file, and then email it to your Kindle.

As ever, if you run into any problems, please don’t hesitate to contact the membership team at
