Putting the book together in Calibre and having Calibre email it to my kindle email for the Personal Doc service at Amazon.

That's interesting. What format does Calibre send to Kindle? My understanding is that covers are only shown for old .mobi/AZW files, and not for newer AZW3 files. AZW3 is required for footnotes and embedded fonts.

I'm not sure what format it sends.  I do know that footnotes are functional, never tried sending one with embedded fonts though.

I am also NOT getting covers. The cover just shows as blank on my Kindle and my Kindle apps on other devices.

This is a limitation at Amazon's end.

Thanks Mark - I suspected that was the unfortunate answer. :(

It's not, it's a formatting issue.

I have a book cover for one of my resources. It was blank/generic until I downloaded and opened it. Now the cover shows.

I believe this only occurs on Kindle Fire and the iOS/Android apps. It's the traditional kindles that have the problem.

Cover view should be available on the Paperwhite and Kindle Touch. It came with firmware 5.3.2 (update, if you need to). You can switch between it and list view.

It also works on Paperwhite, just depends how the file is formatted.  I don't know what the "right" way is, but I know I have several personal docs on my kindle paperwhite that have covers that went through the Amazon service.

Thanks for the clarification. I have the "plain jane" kindle. It was the right price. I picked it up for $15 new. Smile

I'm not sure how to bring this screen up? I am using the Mac version. Will that make a difference? BTW, Ive linked my kindle account but just cannot find the magic "send to Kindle" words!?

By "This" screen I mean the "information" screen pictured earlier in this thread.

Click the "I" button at the top right of a resource or at the top right of the library panel

Mark Nolette:
Actually, I can think of one good reason to send a resource to the Kindle app - especially the one for PC or Mac. Suppose you don't have an eInk Kindle, but you have a Nook Glowlight or Kobo Aura. Well, you send the Logos resource to the Kindle for PC (or Mac) app. Then, you bring your new resource into Calibre. Then, you make it ePub or whatever you need to read on your own eInk device. 

Perhaps, but you can already do all of this without sending it to Kindle. It's just an extra step.

I'm wondering if anyone else is having trouble getting Logos books onto their Kindle? I've linked my Logos to my Kindle. I now see the "send to Kindle" link. When i click the link it says "sending." When it appears to be done it says "resend to Kindle." I did restart my Logos. I'm using the Mac version. Thanks in advance for any help.

I missed the second step in the release notes (probably in my rush to get started):

  • Also, you must add “noreply@logos.com” to your Approved Personal Document Email List at Amazon.com > Manage Your Content and Devices > Settings.

After that, you should be set.

Good grief! That was indeed the missing link. Thanks Mark!!

Calibre sends .mobi files (by default) to your @kindle.com email address...and the covers arrive.  Even if an AZW3 is available, it will not send by email until a .mobi version has been converted.

I just tried to send a calibre AZW3 to kindle by email, and it bounced back as an invalid format, but can be dropped directly on the Kindle manually.  As you say, the cover does not show up for AZW3 files even this way.
