Best Way to Convert Bundles

I have some bundles of books in PDF format (no DRM). I usually convert them for my kindle with mobicreator, because Calibre was not working right (kept page numbers and author name on every page). Hyphenation is kinda funky, but readable.

But I would like to break the books up, instead of converting the whole bundle as is (usually 6 books). I do not have Adobe professional. What would be the best was to break a PDF file into pieces, and then convert it for my kindle?

Thanks,
Debra

pdftk can do this (split PDFs) I think. Alas, command-line only, I believe.

Well, it certainly is just me, but I won't be splitting up anymore bundles. It was too much work. I couldn't figure out how to cut and paste, so I ended up deleting exerything except the book I wanted, one at a time. It ended up taking most of the game. Of course, if I hadn't been drinking Mike's Hard Lemonade and the Cubs hadn't been dropping their second in a row to hated St. Louis, it probably would have gone better.

It would have been simpler just to print each book section to a new PDF. For instance, you have a 100 page pdf with 4 books. In CutePDF, click the print button and print pages 1-25 as a new CutePDF, then print pages 26-50, then 51-75 and 76-100. Re-name each new PDF with the name of the book and you're good to go.

Of course. Thanks daffy. Amazing how much easier it is with coffee, compared with alcohol.

Are they ebooks you can freely share? I wouldn't mind separating out individual books from a bundle & sending them back to you. (Wouldn't mind doing it fairly regularly as long as it's not constant. Splitting a big PDF into ~6 pieces wouldn't take me more than a couple of minutes.)

Another potential option is to convert them to HTML, either with one of the free programs that's available, or by gmailing it to yourself & opening it in Google's HTML view, and then splitting that into pieces. (Since I'm pretty much worthless at HTML, I'd wind up copy-pasting the entire contents into Word, and splitting from there.)

The Red Sox can take the Cubs with the farm team.

Here is the first email I sent out today at work (to a Card's fan, a Red Sox fan and a Yankee's fan)

For Sale:

Large Cubs "W" Flag. Rarely used. Will trade for team loyalty.

I bought it last September. It looks like new.

Thanks Elfwreck, but I am one of those people who has to do it myself. I married an electrical engineer, and I no longer get to do the electrical work around the house (I only started one small fire).
