Converting between Kindle, epub, etc.


So I'm a big believer in my Kindle, I love the thing and I think e-ink readers are the future. I read a lot, I like the feel of paper, but the convenience of having 200 books with me on a slim light device is unbeatable.

I also write on here and produce content, and keeping abreast of the various formats that can be published in is a bit of headache. But Alfred Pang does a great job explaining the current formats and tools to convert between them here - http://alfredpang.com/2010/11/minimalist-workday-in-epub-and-kindle-format/ -

What are all the formats for?

E-books can come in many different formats. ePub, Kindle (MOBI), text, HTML, PDF, Word documents, etc.

Independently produced ebooks (such as Minimalist Workday) usually comes as PDFs. The advantage is that PDFs print out onto paper very well and the exact formatting of the document will not change.

I read about thirty books this year, but when I got my Kindle I wasn't sure how much I would use it. It turns out I read a lot on it, and just not always books. Here are 10 ways to use a Kindle

Those are ten great reasons to get started with a Kindle e-reader. If the inch-long crack in my device happens to extend itself today, then I'll be joining you in purchasing one.
