Save website info to PDFs with CutePdf

Print webpage info to PDFs with the CutePdf utility, which is free.   you can then email these to [you] (direct to your Kindle).  [As of May 4, Amazon charges 15c per megabyte, rounded up, for a file-send.]  You can instead email items to [you] - which remains officially free - and then usb-cable the converted files to your Kindle.

While I take notes for myself about interesting utilities, I hadn't tried this one until tonight.  Interested in website info about a destination, I printed the pages to CutePdf and it made a pdf out of that - text and maps together.  And it's very readable on my Kindle (both Kindles can enlarge map images now).
Highly recommended.

That would work best with less complex ad-light pages.
  For more complex pages, you can highlight text you want, Copy it, open up Microsoft Word and Paste what you copied and then save the file.  The Word Doc file can then be sent to [you] etc. That's just one of many ways to do it. Below are ways to Share this post if you'd like others to see it.
-- The Send to Kindle button works well only on Firefox currently.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
