The following posts provide a brief description of this feature, with links to learn more about these resources, and links for downloading the guides onto your Kindle.

Feedbooks Download Guide

Update:

The Feedbooks Kindle Guide is no longer available for download. Instead, the Feedbooks website recommends:

Quote:
All free books on Feedbooks are available in a Kindle compatible format (for both Kindle devices and mobile applications), but due to the closed nature of the Kindle ecosystem, none of the files available on our store are compatible with the Kindle.

To download a book in a Kindle compatible format, click on the book's name and then select the "Kindle" download option.

You can also easily browse Feedbooks on your Kindle using our mobile website: http://m.feedbooks.com


The mobile website provides all the browsing and search options of our normal website, but optimized for the mobile web.



Feedbooks is fully compatible with all Kindle versions and is the only service capable of delivering both books and RSS feeds directly to the Kindle using the wireless connection.

Kindle Help on Feedbooks: http://www.feedbooks.com/help/kindle


Browsing the Kindle Download Guide

The Kindle Download Guide is the easiest way to download public domain and creative commons books from Feedbooks. It could be described as having an on-demand library on your Kindle.
  • Step 1: The guide is a simple file that you need to add to your Kindle. The URL for this file is http://www.feedbooks.com/kindleguide You can:
    • Open the browser on your Kindle and open this URL, or
    • Download this file and send it to your Kindle using the USB cable, or
    • Download this file and send it to your Kindle using your e-mail: [user]@kindle.com
  • Step 2: Find yourself something to read. You could:
    • Flip through the guide. You'll find books in alphabetical order, then authors in alphabetical order, and finally lists.
      (There's a table of contents for all this that you can access any time you want using the Kindle user interface).
    • Type a keyword using the search feature of your Kindle. This works very well as soon as the guide is fully indexed (you'll have to wait for a few seconds after downloading the guide for your Kindle to fully index this file).


      Searching on the Kindle

  • Step 3: To download a book (make sure that the wireless connection is on), select the right line in the guide. A pop-up window will appear, in which you select the name of the book for your Kindle to download.


    Downloading a book



    Although there are other ways to get content from Feedbooks on the Kindle, the easiest way is to use the built-in wireless connection.
    Otherwise you could get your content through:
    * USB: Simply download a Mobipocket/Kindle file on your desktop computer and transfer the content to your Kindle using the USB cable
    * E-Mail: Download a Mobipocket/Kindle file and e-mail it to your Kindle e-mail address: [user]@kindle.com. You'll have to authorize our e-mail address and pay Amazon's download fee.
    * SD: Download a Mobipocket/Kindle file to your SD card

  • Step 4: Enjoy reading your book -- it is now available on your Kindle!
  • Updating: At the beginning of the guide, you'll find a link to update this guide. The guide is updated a few times every week. Make sure that you manually delete the old version of the guide once you've updated.

Links inside a book
You'll notice links to other books at the beginning and the end of each book. You can follow one of these links to automatically download the book on your Kindle.



You can also easily browse Feedbooks on your Kindle using our mobile website: http://feedbooks.mobi

It is highly recommended to sign in on the mobile version, even if you're using the guide: this way, your downloads will be logged and Feedbooks will create a customized list of recommended books for you.

Feedbooks RSS Guide

Feedbooks provide an easy way for Kindle users to download and read RSS feeds directly on their Kindle by converting RSS feeds into files for the Kindle.
  1. You can create a file for a single feed: http://www.feedbooks.com/feed
  2. Or you can create a newspaper with multiple feeds in a single file with a TOC: http://www.feedbooks.com/newspaper/create
  3. First use your computer to go to the Feedbooks news section http://www.feedbooks.com/news.
  4. Once you've entered the URL of a feed or created a newspaper, download the file to your Kindle (via USB cable, e-mail or SD card).
  5. Once the file is on your Kindle, open it and you'll find an update link on the cover (except for private newspapers) to update the file anytime that you want.
  6. You can now directly update your feeds from your Kindle, through the link on the cover or in the main menu of the file. You no longer need to use your computer to manage your feeds.
  7. You can also subscribe to these feeds/newspapers from the main Feedbooks website and download those subscriptions from the mobile website: http://feedbooks.mobi
Here's an example -- just add this file to your Kindle to read the feed from MobileRead: http://www.feedbooks.com/feed/743.mobi

MobileRead Download Guide

Inspired by the ingenious Feedbooks Kindle Download Guide, we've decided to launch a similar feature allowing everyone with an Amazon Kindle, iRex iLiad or other Mobipocket-compatible e-book reader with access to the Internet to immediately download books prepared and uploaded by our members. The Mobipocket Download Guide allows you to download e-books directly to your connected e-book device.

Some notes:
  • The Guide is updated every 24 hours to include the latest Mobipocket-compatible books uploaded to MobileRead. Be sure to delete the old version after the updated version has finished downloading.
  • Books not in Mobipocket format are not included in the Guide;
  • Kindle users can download the guide using the Kindle web browser. You can also transfer it via USB cable from your computer, or send the Guide to your Kindle e-mail address.
  • Important: it takes some time for the Kindle to fully index the document for searching after it has downloaded.
  • Windows users can use the Mobipocket Desktop software to browse through the guide and download e-books directly from it.

The Magic Catalog of Project Gutenberg E-Books

Similar to our own MobileRead Download Guide and the Feedbooks Download Guide, Free Kindle Books (http://www.freekindlebooks.org/) offers The Magic Catalog of Project Gutenberg E-Books (MOBI Edition).
(there is also and ePub version)

This guide resides on your Kindle, and when you open it and click on a book link it automatically downloads the book to your Kindle. If no size is given for a file, you may download it directly to Kindle. If a size is given (X Megs) please download these Free Books first to your computer desktop and then from there to your Kindle -- it will probably not work otherwise! (The large files include illustrations.)

Download the Magic Catalog here (http://www.freekindlebooks.org/Magic...iccatalog.html) onto your Kindle, using the same procedure(s) described for the other Guides.
