GUIDE: How to Read eBooks on your Mobile Phone[FREE]

I do realize that mobile phones are quite smaller than what you are used to.
I do not need to be reminded of this. Although I'm still gonna write this guide for the people who are curious and want to try it out.

I first want to tell you, the easiest way to do so is:
but there are a lot of books that aren't there. If that is so, please follow these instructions:

--> Any java-enabled mobile phone

^^ DOWNLOAD [MjBookMaker]


--> A way to connect your phone to the computer
--> Common knowledge and INTERNET

1) I'm sure you already have a book in mind. If you don't, think of one.
Now, go to and look for the search box.

2) This website is practically the base of all books, if it's not here, it's not in anywhere. So type in the search box the title of your book. Then add the file extension "pdf"
For example, my book name is "Marked" in the search box, type in
"Maked .pdf" without this:"

3) Download the file most suitable. Make sure to save it somewhere you may easily find.

4) Go to: OR
to Convert that FILE YOU DOWNLOADED into .txt.
Which means you need to browse your book [file pdf] then convert.

[If you used : Click checkbox bellow, then click continue, after loading click on the folder and browse for your file. Then Click "Save All Text" once it is loaded.]

You may download a program that does so. This will be useful if you are converting more files. Example Program: [For WINDOWS]

FOR MAC: GO here:
^^ Except that on step 3 Change the Rich Text Radio button and click the other option beside it.

5) Converting to JAR>>
Either you use the MjBookMaker or the TequilaCat [located in the requirements at the start of this thread] you need to convert the .txt file of your book to .jar
In this part you edit the settings of the book and the jar format.
You can fit it to whatever style you like.

MjBookMaker: Instructions; {scroll till you find the directions}



^^ I haven't tried TequilaCat yet but it is said to convert to JAR aswell.
And it also pretty good in making ebooks to jar. From the looks of it, it maybe better. Preview:

6) When you have the jar/s file, Insert the USB connecting your phone to the computer and send the file to your phone. Or if you have a MAC, you can bluetooth it. Then, Read Away!

Any questions, please post.
