Hi @scipio

If you are using Windows 10, go to Windows Store and download the official Kindle App. Once you log-in to your Kindle Account, you will see your Kindle books which are online. Right-click it then choose "Download e-book". This should store a local copy of your kindle ebook on the PC.

All your Kindle books should be on the Amazon Cloud if they were legitimately purchased. If you have illegitimately-acquired books, it will not appear on the Kindle App. If your ebooks are legitimate, just connect your Kindle to a working WiFi hotspot and your device will automatically store it.

I don't really encourage people to use unlicensed ebooks since this is detrimental to the authors.

Have a good day. :)

If you have files on your computer that you need on your Kindle, you can transfer these with ease. Although e-mailing or sending a document to your Kindle is fast and easy, connecting your Kindle via USB cable and transferring books via drag-and-drop is simple too.

Both Macintosh and Windows users can download and transfer Kindle content and personal documents from their computers to their Kindles through the USB connection. When the Kindle is plugged into a computer, it appears as a removable mass-storage device.

To transfer files via USB cable, your computer must meet the following system requirements:

PC: Windows 2000 or later

Macintosh: Mac OS X 10.2 or later

USB port: An available port or an attached USB hub with an available port

To connect your Kindle to your computer:

Plug the larger end of the USB cable into an available USB port or a powered USB hub connected to your computer, and connect the other end of the USB cable to the micro-USB port on the bottom of the Kindle.

When connected to the PC, the Kindle goes into USB drive mode and its battery is recharged by the computer. Wireless service is temporarily shut off. The Kindle isn’t usable as a reading device while in USB drive mode but returns to your reading location when you eject the device from your computer.

When your Kindle is connected, simply drag and drop (or copy and paste) the file from your computer’s hard drive to the Kindle.
For e-books, make sure to place the file in the Documents folder on the Kindle Paperwhite. If you put the file in the root drive, it won't appear on the Home screen of your Kindle Paperwhite.

If your file is in a Kindle-compatible formats, you can transfer it directly from your computer to your Kindle Paperwhite via USB. To transfer the files, follow these easy steps:

Connect your Kindle Paperwhite to your computer using the USB cable.

Your computer recognizes your Kindle Paperwhite when it’s plugged in and displays the Kindle Paperwhite as a removable drive. If you go to my Computer (PC) or Finder (Mac), your Kindle Paperwhite appears as a drive.
Double-click the drive to open it and view the folders on your Kindle Paperwhite.

Open another window and navigate to the file(s) you want to transfer to your Kindle Paperwhite.

Drag the file(s) to the appropriate folder on your Kindle Paperwhite.

Place your text and documents files in the Documents folder on your Kindle Paperwhite.

You can also use the Copy and Paste commands to move documents to the documents folder.

Eject your Kindle Paperwhite from your computer:

On a Windows 8 PC: Right-click the Kindle drive icon and choose Eject. A notification that it is safe to remove the device from the computer appears.

On a Windows Vista or Windows 7 PC, choose Start→Computer, and then right-click the Kindle drive icon and choose Eject. You can also left- or right-click the Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media icon in the lower-right corner of the task-bar.
The files you transferred are displayed on your Home screen and are available for you to view on your Kindle Paperwhite.

Your Kindle Paperwhite cannot read files that are protected with DRM. If this is the case, you see an error message when you try to open the e-book. Before buying books from sources other than Amazon, make sure that the file is compatible with your Kindle Paperwhite.

Make sure your books are in your Library, not the download library but the other, where pictures are. Then you can call it up right on your Kindle. I do it all the time.
