Sorry to tell you this, but they're not crying. That's their mating call.

I was excited until I saw the warnings that converting from PDF will look like ***. I have a copy of Metro 2033 that came with the Metro game and it's in PDF format and, while the Kindle Android app will display it, it won't do anything as simple as remember what page I was on.

The Aubrey Martin books are really very good. I know you said he's not really into historical fiction, but I think those might work.

I love historical fiction, I'll have to check these out.

I'd try it anyway, it's a really well put together piece of software. I've converted probably a dozen PDFs to Ebooks for Nexa's Nook Color. Most have worked fine. Some were abominations. Worth a shot for free.

PDF's are tricky. It depends on the origional conversion method, and if it was a text convert, or a scanned image convert. That being said, check your PM's in a minute for a totally not related PM.

Three of the five GoT books I converted from pdf to epub with Calibre. Lots of legal stuff too. For the most part the conversion always came out fine leaving me able to bookmark, use the dictionary, take notes etc.

If you start out with a crappy file, it's not going to fix that.

I agree with Kao though, I think Nooks will expire or be turned into another sort of product in the near future. Wonder how Kindles are doing??

Amazon will convert from pdf all by itself. Just send the pdf to your kindle email with a subject of convert. This has the added benefit of adding whatever it was you sent to your cloud archive.

It's a shame he doesn't read any fantasy, because Patrick Rothfuss' Name of the Wind is easily one of the best novels I've ever read. If the aversion to the genre doesn't manifest as a hatred of anything in it, I feel like it might be a good way to test the waters there.

Rothfuss's Name of the Wind and A Wise Man's Fears are absolutely amazing. 2014 cannot get here soon enough for me. Has some of the hands down best character development I've read, and there's a ton of life in even ancillary characters.

Highly second the recommendation.

How does it work the same if I don't have a Kindle email? Sending it to my tablet's GMail app is unlikely to impress my Kindle app.

You should have a kindle email for each device that has the kindle app installed. Sending it to a specific email will auto send it to that app, but will also archive it to the cloud. Should be in your amazon manage my account settings somewhere.

It showed me a @kindle.com address. So I'll have to see if that works. Be good to know in general.

Also, your guy's screens have all sorts of big white spaces and boxes on them covering vital information. You should get your video cards checked.

If you want the pdf to convert, you need to put convert in the subject, otherwise leave it blank. You also need to have an address set up that has permission to send emails with books.

Did it use your Amazon account name, or the name of the email address that receives Amazon emails for the beginning of the Kindle address?

I tried it and it indeed worked so thanks for the tip. Pretty decent conversion too, all things considered.

All of things? Even wombats??? I'm pretty sure no consideration whatsoever was given to wombats during the conversion process. False advertising! Er wait, would that be Slander? No no, Hmmm. Necromancy? nah, that only applies to tech support. Wait a minute, I got it, Blasphemy!

Be warned, it's 15 cent per MB converted and Amazon rounds up. Trying to convert one of gbaji's posts will probably cost you around $10.
