Two essential tips for your new Kindle
The Amazon Kindle has been incredibly popular this Christmas and as a long-time Kindle user here are two essential tips for your next-generation electronic reading wonder.
(1) Get free books. Yep, free as in beer. The great thing about the Kindle is that all those out-of-copyright and otherwise free ebooks can now be read on the e-ink screen instead of your glaring laptop. Don't know where to find free books? No worries here is the Bitterwallet guide to free Kindle ebooks.
(2) If you are downloading DRM free ebooks from multiple sources (not just the Amazon Kindle store) or you want to convert ebooks from pdf to .mobi then you need to download the amazing and open-source Calibre software. Calibre is like iTunes for your Kindle. It will manage all your ebook files, sync them to your Kindle and magically convert just about any format to any format (but most importantly MOBI which is the native Kindle file type).
