    I converted a few epub books to mobi to read on my kindle. I was wondering if there is any way I can sync ebooks books I did not purchase through the kindle store, with the kindle app on my ipad?

    i.e. is there a way to upload mobi format books to amazon cloud, and have it sync between my ipad and kindle.

    Thanks!

    You could simply sync the ePub to iTunes, and have it appear in iBooks.

    If you mean putting non-store bought books on the iPad, yes, via iTunes.


    If you mean sync furthest position on non-store bought books between devices, no*.

    *there is a way to do this with Calibre, but it's fiddly and requires the book to exist in the Amazon store

    Amazon Personal Documents Service

    Yes. Amazon provides a "personal document service" for just that. They give you a unique "amazon.com" email address, and you can send emails there with documents attached. Amazon converts the attachments and they become part of your "Kindle Library", so you can then download/read them on your Kindle (or Kindle app on ipad/iphone).
