Question Hi from Oklahoma....Proud New Kindle 3 owner

So My husband surprised me with a Kindle for Christmas. I was happy to read my books on my ipod, but what can I say? He's a sweetie!

My name is Angela (ang) and I've recently become a reader. I have a husband and 2 boys.


I have several books that I've put into the stanza application and really nobody seems to be able to tell me how to get them off my stanza app on my iPod on to my kindle.

My kindle app did fine transferring to the to the device. But I have over 20 books alone on the stanza app and I really don't want to have to pay for them all again to get them on my kindle.

Hi and welcome. As long as your books are DRM-free, you can convert them, since the kindle uses a different file format. A good tool to use is Calibre, and it's free. I'm sure others here can give you more detail if you need it.

I have calibre, but I can't get my books from my stanza into calibre to convert them. I'm very stupid when it comes to things like this.


for the welcome!

Hello and welcome, Ang. What a sweet husband you have to give you a Kindle. You must've been a good girl this year. Enjoy your new toy and the forums.
