Every document sent to Kindle is now on Amazon Cloud Drive

If you mainly use your Kindle to read ebooks, you may be unaware that the device is also an excellent document reader — simply send an email with a document to a specific Amazon email address and it will appear on your e-reader. On Wednesday, Amazon sent an email to Kindle users informing them all documents sent to Kindle are now stored on Amazon Cloud Drive, in a folder labeled “My Send to Kindle Docs,” even documents sent before the cloud drive integration. Previously, documents sent to Kindle were converted to .mobi format, but now those docs are stored in their original format. It’s pretty nifty and allows you to send a document to your reader and make a cloud backup accessible from the browser at the same time.
