How to get documents onto the Kindle, and online sources

A very informative posting about getting files onto the Kindle was made by B. Tackitt.   It's from a document Tackitt made, to keep on the Kindle for reference.

(Also see Amazon's help section on how to use the USB cable to transfer files.)

The forum thread is titled "Helpful information to add to your Kindle," and the following topics are covered:

  . Multiple ways to get information onto your Kindle.
  . Some programs to convert e-books to Kindle format
        - added by Kurt G. Schumacher
  . A listing of items in the popular forum thread that T. Beck began,
        on How to download a million or so books, mostly for free,
        to your Kindle.  Has good detail and includes resources.      
  . E-textbook stores online are also listed.

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.
