1. Install Bluefire Reader for Android on your Kindle Fire

  • Choose "Settings"on your Kindle Fire (it's the icon that looks like a gear)
  • Tap "More"
  • Scroll down and tap the setting for "Device"
  • In the Device tab, set the option for “Allow installation of Applications” to ON.  Tap OK when you see the prompt
  • Download the Bluefire Reader app for Android. If you open this page in the browser on your Kindle Fire, you can tap here for the download
  • Once the app has finished downloading, tap the Menu icon at the bottom of the screen and tap Downloads
  • Tap on the file named “BluefireReader.apk”
  • The Fire will ask if you are sure you want to install the app…
  • Tap “Yes” or "Install"
  • After the installation is complete, look for Bluefire Reader in your Apps collection


Note: Before downloading an eBook, you must authorize this app with an Adobe ID.

  1. Amazon tells me Bluefire is not compatible with 'my' Kindle Fire. Wish I knew if there was an alternative app.

  2. The instructions above have been tested on the Kindle Fire and work well with BlueFire.

  3. If you install the overdrive media console application for overdrive library books, then enki books will be downloaded by overdrive and can be read there.

  4. Thanks so much for recommending Overdrive, as you are correct. Kindle did not even have the Bluefire Reader app available!
    They need to correct their instructions. This was a real pain to try to figure out.

  5. Both Bluefire and the overdrive media console downloaded no problem on my 1st gen kindle fire. I just can't figure out how to assosiate my adobe ID with my overdrive app account name on my Samsung Galaxy s5. There is not an option to loving with an adobe ID account on my phone.

  6. I downloaded and installed Bluefire to iMac Pro and Kindle Fire, then downloaded a book from Enki through Bluefire. I seemed to be able to then transfer the book to my Kindle, and when I view the Kindle from the iMac app, it shows the book is there.

    Yet when I launch Bluefire on the Kindle, the book is not listed. It's not in my Kindle's Books list, and it's not listed in Overdrive either.

    Any ideas?
