Amazon offers an excellent Kindle support site for your use.
Free Kindle reading software can be installed on Apple products, Android smartphones, BlackBerries, and PCs. When author rights allow it, the Kindle can read out loud to you.
Kindle does not actually download files to its e-reader. Instead, the files are stored on Amazon servers in the Amazon Cloud. The Kindle merely accesses your ebook files stored in its Amazon cloud.
Kindle users may now loan their ebooks to other Kindle users for a period of 14 days. During that time, the owner loses access to that file. After 14 days, the file is disabled on the borrower's machine and is re-enabled on the lender's unit.
