Changes in Kindle delivery from Baen Ebooks

This came in email; I assume it’s been sent to all Baen .mobi customers

Dear Baen Ebooks customer,

Starting on or about June 10, 2015, Baen Ebooks will no longer be able to provide automatic delivery of the .mobi format to a Kindle device via the “Email book to my Kindle” feature. We have just learned that to comply with Amazon’s Terms of Use, Baen Ebooks cannot use Amazon’s Personal Documents Service to deliver paid content.

Baen Ebooks will still offer the “Mobi/Palm/Kindle” format with every Ebook we sell. If you want to read that format on a Kindle, there is only one change: You can no longer send the Ebook directly to your Kindle from our site. You can, however, still email your .mobi Ebook to your Kindle by following these directions:

  1. Log in to your Amazon Kindle account and Amazon Kindle Manager.
  2. In Amazon Kindle Manager, add your personal email address to your list of approved senders under Manage Your Content and Devices Settings.
  3. Log in to your account on Baen Ebooks and navigate to your purchased Ebook’s product page.
  4. Click “Email book to my Kindle.”
  5. Enter your personal email address into the email address box.
  6. Press send.
  7. Check your email. You should receive an email from with a .mobi file attached.
  8. Forward this email to your Kindle, making sure the .mobi file remains attached. Within 15 minutes, your Ebook should be on your Kindle.
For more information on how to load Baen Ebooks onto your Kindle device, check out our Ereader Instruction page: If you have any questions about how to access the Kindle Ebooks you’ve purchased from Baen, please email us at

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this change causes. Thank you for your patience and support of Baen Books.
