Not very hard as there are tools available on the web.
The best being packed into something called "tools_v2.0".
Take a look at "Apprentice Alf's Blog" here.

Remember: You need to convert into something the Kindle is able to read.

i so far do not recomend the kindle 3. i deregistered my device and since then my device discharges in a day or around there. before when it was registered it would go standby on its own and be idle. no one should have to be tracked in order to maintain a fuction completly independent of any security issue or any tos/tou agreement i can fathom. unless your running a real Flavor of linux other than facist (its facist) you can do yourself better. illiad is awesome.

If I give up on the PDF thing and I just want a low end reader that I can get a good selection of sci-fi/fantasy for in canada, is Kobo or Kindle better?
So, if you are new to this, you might not be aware of Baen. They are a traditional science fiction/fantasy publisher who has been the star of the ebook world since the late 1990's. Their stuff leans towards military and space opera. If that is your flavor you won't find a better source. Its cheap (a whole lot of it is free). It works on every reader, and it has no DRM.

Go to www.webscriptions.net and start with the link for the free library to see many books (70+) for free.
