Here I will show you an easy way to convert DOC to KF8.

Amazon provides a service helping you to convert documents(includes HTML, DOC, PDF) to Kindle files. To do this you have to have an active Amazon e-mail address. You can make sure you are set-up with an e-mail address by visiting the "Manage Your Kindle" section of the Amazon web site. Typically, your Kindle e-mail address will be "".

Following are the detailed steps about how to convert DOC to KF8:

To avoid wireless delivery charges, you can have the converted documents delivered to your primary email address to add to your Kindle Fire via USB cable, or have them delivered to a Kindle Fire with WiFi so that you don’t get charged a delivery fee for using the 3G wireless.
