Step 1: Connect the Kindle to the computer using the USB cable. Allow the computer to register the Kindle as a removable drive and list the drive with a drive letter.
Step 2: Open the e-book on the Kindle and scroll to the first page to reproduce as a PDF. Click in front of the first text character to copy and click the "Select" wheel. Select the "Add Highlight" option. Scroll to the end of the text block to copy and click the Select wheel after the last character in the text block.
Step 3: The block of text will be highlighted. Make sure all text to be copied is highlighted on the Kindle screen. The text is copied to the Kindle in a folder named "My Clippings" as a PDF. Right-click on the Windows "Start" button on the computer and click "Explore" to launch Windows Explorer.
Step 4: Navigate to the Kindle drive in the left navigation panel. Click on the drive to expand. Click on the Kindle root folder to open. Locate and click on the folder named "My Clippings" in the right navigation panel. A PDF file of the copied text will be in the folder. Right-click on the PDF and click "Rename", and then type a meaningful name for the PDF file.
Step 5: Copy the PDF file to the computer and test the document in a PDF viewing application such as Adobe Reader. Combine several PDFs into one large PDF document with PDF File Merger, if desired.
