I am having trouble getting a book from my computer to my kindle. I downloaded using the USB, sent the book to my "documents" and/or desktop. Then, when I right-clicked the book, it said it was already in my Kindle, but the title doesn't appear in the list of books of my Kindle. Is the problem with my computer, my Kindle, me or all of the above?!

You wrote "sent the book..." You don't send the book, you drag and drop it into the documents folder of your Kindle.

I always copy and paste rather than drag and drop because my source and destination aren't on the same window. I just find it easier.

click on Documents. Then drag the book title across your screen into the Documents folder. Have the USB cable hooked up to the computer and to the Kindle. when you disconnect the USB cable, the new book should be on your Kindle. Hope this helps.

I minimize both screens so that they are both displayed.

Edit: usually, when someone says they "sent" it, they've right clicked on the document and used the "send to x:" option. That, of course, will not work, since you don't send it to the root directory of the drive.
