How to load your CUT e-book to your e-reader device....

When you receive your CUT e-book it should load very simply onto your e-reader device. The method will vary slightly depending on which device you wish to read it on, but generally the principle is the same.

  • Email the e-book to your device
  • Then open the file from the email - to the reader app installed on the device.

Below is a step-by-step guide designed to assist you.

If you have any further queries after you have followed these instructions, please do not hesitate to email us at customerservice@cutalongstory.com

First, select the type of device you are loading your CUT story onto:
Kindle

Sony e-reader

Apple

Kobo

Laptop/PC/tablet

Smartphone

 

Note:-

  • Kindle will only read a .Mobi file
  • This will be one of the two file types sent to you
  • The other is an Epub file which will not open on your Kindle

Option 1: Kindle “send to kindle” account guide:

Getting your new CUT e-book to your Kindle could not be easier. All you need to do is email it to your ‘Send-to-Kindle’ email address which can be found on your Kindle device under the Setting tab.
If this is the first time you have sent a new book to your ‘Send-to-Kindle’ email address you will need to perform one key step before your new book will be forwarded to your Kindle.

  • Log in to your Amazon account
  • Under “Your Account” select “Manager Your Kindle”
  • Select the “Setting” tab on the right
  • Scroll down to “Approved Personal Document E-mail List”
  • If your email address is listed in this section you can send your new book to your ‘Send-to-Kindle’ email address
  • If your email address is not listed select “Add a new approved e-mail address” and add the email address you will be using to send the book to your kindle and save it to the list.

You can now simply forward all your CUT e-books directly to your ‘Send-to-Kindle’ email address when they arrive in your inbox. 

 

Option 2: Kindle Manual Book Transfer
