Convert using Calibre (Windows/MacOS/Linux)
Calibre is software specifically designed to transfer and alter digital text into various formats. Fortunately, it will not eat up much of your device’s memory either. This software can support countless input formats, including MOBI, HTML, PRC, and AZW.
Calibre is an effective e-book manager that gives its users the creative freedom and plentiful options they need to customize their graphics and visual images. The app’s display is user-friendly and easy to navigate, making for an exceptional and incredibly informative changeover experience. Furthermore, Calibre can operate with or without a continual or running network connection.
Here are the most interesting iPad mini 6 case covers you can get in 2021
In this updated overview, we list the best covers and sleeves that are compatible with the newest iPad mini 6 released in 2021.
This tool can be used to copy part of a page or an entire webpage into your Evernote account, and I’m told it works well to copy notes from a book’s highlights page on azon.com.
But you might want to manually select the book notes though and copy and paste. There’s one report that the page has an infinite scroll built-in that messes up one user’s Evernote clipper.
And while we’re on the topic, Microsoft’s OneNote has a similar clipping tool. It takes screenshots so it’s not nearly as useful, but if you already use that platform then it’s worth a look.
Looking for uncommon, fresh new accesories for your iPad or iPad Pro?
In this list, you will find the lesser-known, newly launched, and innovative accessories and appliances that may surprise you with how useful they are.
All in all, there are a lot of tools out there that either don’t work, aren’t terribly useful, or are intended to work in only specific circumstances.
But I found at least one tool that I like, so I’m good.
Did you find one you could use? Did I miss one?

How to Create an Amazon Account
If you don't have one, create an Amazon account to purchase and read Kindle books.
Move your mouse cursor over Accounts & Lists in the upper-right corner of the page, but do not select it.
Select Start Here from the drop-down menu, located below the Sign In button.
Fill out the registration form. You must provide your name, an email address, and a password for your account. When finished, select Create Your Amazon Account.
You're redirected to the Amazon home page. Select Accounts & Lists to be taken to your account page.
You can now download free Kindle books. If you want to purchase books, set up a payment method. Select Payment Options on your account page and provide the requested information to make purchases on Amazon.

Adding your books to Calibre
Before converting your e-books to PDF, you’ll need to add them to Calibre. Just click on Add Books on the top left in the menu, then select the books from your downloads folder or wherever you stored them after downloading them from Amazon earlier.
How to Purchase Kindle Books for Your PC
Follow these steps to buy a new Kindle book on your PC.
While connected to the internet, select Kindle Store in the upper-right corner of the app window.
You're taken to the Amazon website in your default browser, where you can browse thousands of titles.
The Kindle Store has plenty of free books. Check out the Amazon Cheap Reads for Kindle list.
On the product page, select Buy Now with 1-Click to deliver the title you want to all your devices.
Choose Your E-Book Format
Now you know how to email an e-book to your Kindle, the next step is to figure out your e-book’s format, which will determine how best to send it.
While Amazon no longer supports the Mobi format for new and updated reflowable (aka, where you can customize fonts, etc.) ebooks in the Mobi format, existing ebooks in the Mobi format are still readable by the Kindle. Attach the file to an email, send it to your Kindle’s email address (with any subject, and nothing in the body of the email), and it should appear on your Kindle shortly. You can also drag and drop the file onto your Kindle if you attach the device to your PC with a USB cable.
Amazon can automatically convert PDFs into the Kindle format, but you get two formatting choices. If you want your Kindle to display every page in the PDF as if it were a graphic, just email the .pdf file to your Kindle’s address without a subject line.
That will maintain the formatting and graphics, but the font size may be too small to read. If you’re okay with this kind of formatting, you can also drag and drop the file onto your Kindle if you attach the device to your PC with a USB cable.
Your other option is to attach the PDF file to an email, and make the subject line “convert”—just that word. Send it to your Kindle email address and your PDF will be converted into a Mobi file, where you can control the font size and formatting. The graphics will still be in there as well, but you’ll lose the layout of the original PDF.
EPUB is a common ebook format around the web, but the Kindle can’t read it natively. That’s okay; you can convert .epub files to Mobi files for the Kindle to read.
The key is a free piece of software called Calibre. Available for Windows and Macs, it can reformat almost any kind of ebook for most ebook readers, although cracking the copy protection on books purchased from Amazon or certain other stores is forbidden. When you set up the software, it asks you for your model of ebook reader, and a pop-up suggests sending the books by email. Fill in the email address for your Kindle and the authorized email address with which you’ve set to send documents to your Kindle.
Once you set up Calibre, click on Add Books and pick out any free ebook files you’ve downloaded. They’ll appear in the Calibre library. Now click on an entry in your Calibre library and choose Convert Books from the top bar.
In the upper right-hand corner, make sure to set the Output Format to Mobi. Click OK, and wait until the Jobs number at the lower-right of the main screen goes from 1 down to 0. Now select the title again and click Save to Disk.
Pick the folder you want to save it in. It’ll create a subfolder with the name of the author. In Explorer or Finder, drill into that folder until you find the Mobi file within, which you can email to your Kindle or drag and drop onto it using a USB cable.
Also, remember, text files, blog posts, Word documents, and more can be emailed to your Kindle, too. Just send them to your Kindle’s email address and enjoy.
