Just getting started and adding items first time to library

I was able to add a google book with a single click. Can any one tell me how to add Kindle books' info?
  • See here for the best way to import items to Zotero: https://www.zotero.org/support/adding_items_to_zotero

    For kindle books, I recommend you import them from the Amazon purchase page. You could also copy the ISBN number from the beginning of the book and add the item to Zotero using the Add by Identifier (magic wand) tool.

    In terms of linking to the Kindle book from Zotero, the best way is to use the Kindle web app at https://read.amazon.com/

    Right click on the book in Zotero and choose Add Attachment → Attach Link to URI, then enter a URL of the form: https://read.amazon.com/?asin=B00J5W908W

    Where the "B00J5W908W" part is the ASIN number you can find on the Kindle book's Amazon product page. You can get this link premade for you by clicking the Read Now button on the Kindle book's Amazon product page, then copying the URL.
