On it says you can view PDF files from within the app but when I go through the menus I can't find a way to open a PDF file that's on my computer! How do I do it?

Could you provide a link to where on it says this? Thanks. – Jeremy Banks Nov 24 '11 at 21:17

There doesn't appear to be an command for this within the Kindle app itself. However, these two indirect approaches both allowed me to import/view PDF documents in the Kindle app:

  • Copy or move the PDF file into your My Kindle Content folder, then relaunch the Kindle app. You can find the location of this folder through Tools menu / Options / Content.
  • Open the PDF using the Kindle executable. You can either use the Open With... option on the file itself and select the Kindle executable, or drag and drop the PDF's icon onto the executable's icon.
