I successfully emailed a mobi file to my Kindle account. It appears in my Kindle App, BUT only in the tab "My Device". Why does it no appear with the rest of my books in the tab for "Books". I have other books in there, but this file does not show up as a book--actually, at all, in the Books tab. Why is that, and how can I get it in my Listing of Books?

Maybe because it is not counted as a book, but as a personal document? Depending on how you got it onto the Android device.

Thanks for your reply Susan. However, I just discovered how to easily do this, for anyone else who has trouble :) Save the mobi file to your desktop; connect your android tablet to computer with USB cord. Drag the mobi file from omputer desktop to "kindle" tab on your tablet--no special subfile, simply drag to "kindle". The book itself will be coped to your android in the books listing. Oh, and if, when you save your mobi file it saves as a folder with the book file inside, OPEN THAT FOLDER BEFORE DRAGGING AND ONLY DRAG THE BOOK FILE ITSELF FROM INSIDE THE FOLDER. DO NOT DRAG THE ENTIRE FOLDER. :) The book popped right up with all my other books on my android. There ya go.
