6. Now scroll further down and you will see Approved Personal Document E-mail List. Your own email address should be here and if you look at the blue writing underneath it says add a new approved email address. Click on it and add the one you have been given. If it is a account, you only need to add the last bit as shown. This authorises all holders of gmail and saves you having to do it again. No one can send you anything unless your give them your Kindle address, so you don’t need to worry about adding the generic one.

My email ends in So if you have followed these instructions and would like to receive a free book. Contact me here letting me know your kindle address, and I’ll send one over.
