Free solution for Kindle and eBook confusion

If you’re a Kindle and eBook power user like me, I hope you know about the free app called Calibre for your PC or Mac.

Tired of trying to find a way to quickly convert ePUB, Mobi, pdf, doc, etc. formats and get them loaded onto your Kindle Reader — whether your Kindle Reader for your PC, your tablet or your actual branded Kindle? You NEED Calibre.

Here’s how one user described it on Softonic:

Calibre puts the ease into e-readers

When I bought my kindle I was disappointed to discover that all of the ebooks I had bought from elsewhere for my android tablet were not going to transfer easily. I mucked around with a couple of other file conversion programs before I disovered Calibre.

Not only does it convert files to other formats but it also manages my Kindle while it manages my ridiculously large e-library. All I have to do is select all of the books I want to add then click ‘Add to device’ and it’s done in seconds.

I love the feature that finds and adds publication details and summaries to the side panel. This is great for those times I get a little too download happy at The Guttenburg project and forgotten what some of the books were about.

Calibre is also great for adding PDFs and other documents to the kindle. It’s wonderfu lthat such a useful program is still free. Thankyou to Calibre’s wonderful and thoughtful creator.

Best:
Easy enough to use that I have been able to teach my technophobic parents to use it. Made it possible for them to get their own Kindles.

Converts to multiple formats and keeps the original format. Buy ebooks from anywhere; raid The Guttenburg Project and move the files to any format you need.

Converts bulk lots- I’ve seen it convert a folder containing a thousand books.
Worst:
Still haven’t found any cons.

Are versions for windows, mac, android, maybe more…

All are free — except the Calibre Library app for Android is $2.99 on Google Play… But another Android version is free:

J.A. Escobar developed a free version of Calibre for Android called Leger Calibre. Search for it on Google Play (formerly known as Google Market).
