If you don't want to use Calibre to convert, just write CONVERT in your subject line when you email the content. Amazon will convert it for you. I use both Calibre and Email to Kindle functionality when I send non-Amazon books or fanfiction to my Kindle. And though Kindle CAN read PDFs, I always convert them to make them more functional in terms of font sizing and control of the document

After being down for several months, most of the news links in #145 and #146 again work. And the US weather instructions in #144 again work. Thank you to Robin Gardner for fixes to font-stabilization site www.readingthenet.com.

Here is a readingthenet-enabled url that is a true Link Every Kindle Owner Should Have:

Here's a good trick that I use:

I place all my pdfs in my dropbox folder and view them thru their mobile site.

I suggest adding this link to the list:

http://www.amazon.com/kindlegames/

Amazon recently removed links to their Kindle Active Content section for some reason. To my knowledge, the only way to find the list of games and apps for E-Ink Kindles (Paperwhite etc.) is to visit the page directly, now.

Newbie here.
As I cannot find any tag button for the thread here, just leaving a mark in case I need it.

Just because there are no recent posts here doesn't change that the Kindles with free world-wide text-based internet remain the greatest thing since sliced bread (if that was great).

Here's an eInk friendly link for www.realclearbooks.com, a web site with some book reviews, and with more essays about the book business:

http://www.readingthenet.com/mob?ct=...clearbooks.com

Same as the above but easier to type:

You'll notice in the middle of the screen a link for "RCB MOBILE." One might think that the mobile version of the web site works better, but, for this one, I find it worse.

P.S. RCB Mobile is worse, for eInk, because it leads with the book reviews rather than the essays, and some of the reviews, such as from the New York Times, do require a more capable brower.

Hi Kubizo The screen changer software link is not working. Does it work with the PW second gen? I don't have special offers.
