Reading other formats on kindle

Post by KAMama » 03 May 2017, 03:01

Anybody have any suggestions on reading books in other formats on the kindle? I recently read a .PDF on my kindle and I tried 3 different apps before I found one that I could open the file. Then I had to readjust the font size after almost every page turn. :cry:

Have you tried emailing your kindle with the subject "convert"? Just the PDF file and the write "convert" in the subject. It works for me every time! Some words end up being together but it's not a big deal.

You can convert the format via the free Calibre App and then move it to your kindle.
