I am enrolled in an online college course and have my textbook on my thumbdrive. Is there a way to sync that textbook into my kindle so I can read it at work? ASAP, Please.

That would depend on what format the text book is in. What is the format?

Would I find that information in the properties of the textbook?

Maybe, I'm not sure. What do you use to read the text book now?

Is it a PDF or Did you download it from the Amazon store?

It is a PDF file.

The IFre that you reference above can run a version of Adobe Reader that will allow you to read the textbook. I believe that you can also read PDF files with the Kindle reader as well.

I read it from my computer, from the thumb drive.

I tried to copy and paste from the thumb drive onto the book section in the kindle. It doesn't show up in my (screen) kindle book section, but it shows up in the files (on the computer)of the kindle book section.

I downloaded it from the college. Amazon doesn't have this textbook.
