Photo guide: How to check out Kindle library books

Here’s a quick walk-through of loading a library book on to a Kindle, using the new service being tested at the Seattle Public Library.

First, you have to log in to the library site, then find a book. Most of the “popular” titles were already checked out today:

After “adding to cart,” you “proceed to checkout.”

Click to confirm:

Then you click to really check out, clicking “Get for Kindle” takes you to Amazon.com:

Here’s the first step at Amazon, where you have to click again to check out, using the familiar Amazon purchase button. This is where you choose where you want to download the book if you have different devices running Kindle software:

Then, you get the sales pitches:

The USB mode is a bit tricky.

Using Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7, you’ve got to use the “Save As” option:

I made the mistake of not saving the book to the “documents” section of the Kindle and it didn’t show up. Within Windows Explorer I moved the file to “documents.”

Then the book appears on the Kindle:

It saved me a trip to the library, but I miss the color pictures:
