Hadrien, thanks for all the effort you put in for Kindle users.

Is there any issue with your new autogen script? I am having trouble download the latest Kindle guide, even from my desktop computer. However the download of regular ebooks seems to be find on my kindle.

Yeah I'm aware of this issue. I'll fix it today and add a little bit of text at the beginning of the guide too.

Edit: Should be okay now.

Table Of Contents

I've been using the Guide and I think it's fantastic.

However there is one minor suggestion I have. Could the TOC be right justified so that the letters are nearer Kindle's cursor? Currently they are far enough away that I need to guess if I hit the right letter.

Anyway thanks for Guide. I'll never run out of reading material!

Done. Should be available in the next guide update (24/48H).

Hello - just wanted to post and say thank you for such a wonderful resource. I received my Kindle Thursday. After loading the feedbooks guide I am simply amazed at the wealth of reading material available to download. Thank you so much for your efforts on this.

The TOC is now aligned to the left of the screen. Should be much easier to select something: http://www.feedbooks.com/kindleguide

Well I've been mostly working on the epub output lately, which is now fully valid and multi-flows. Whenever a handheld device start supporting epub, Feedbooks is ready.

Cover shouldn't be much of a problem, RSS is slightly more difficult...

I can see that a lot of users are already using our guide for the Kindle, the guide is downloaded a few hundred times every day and a lot of our downloads are Mobipocket/Kindle now.

Juste wondering about something: could anyone be kind enough to make a video tutorial for the guide ?

Showing how to download the guide in the browser, and then use the guide to download a few books ? I'd love to add this on the help page to show how it works (can't do it myself, I'm in France: no EVDO), and I'm pretty sure that it would be interesting for a lot of potential Kindle users too.

Added recent books and top downloads (previous week) at the beginning of the guide. Should be up later this week.

No answer to my previous post ? :'(

Hi Hadrien,

Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your work--the Kindle Download guide is just amazing! Best thing I've downloaded on the Kindle.

The 'Recent Books' and 'Top Downloads' lists are a great help, Hadrien. Thank you for the wonderful service you are providing.

Still trying to gradually improve the guide and our Mobipocket output. I've recently added covers on the Mobipocket files and I'm still trying to find the best way to provide personalized recommendations in the guide.

For the moment, personalized recommendations can be accessed through the normal or mobile website.
