I was lucky this xmas as my wonderful GF brought me a Kindle 6″ E Ink which finally means good bye to the dead tree books that I have collected over the years which are just sat in the garage in boxes. Now if you have some ebooks in epub format, take note that this kindle does not support that format. To get around the problem just install Calibre ebook management application, as this will automatically convert your epubs into into a kindle format when you transfer the books across. Calibre is a free and open source e-book library management application developed by users of e-books for users of e-books and will work on Linux, OS X & Windows. For linux users you should be able to install direct from your software centre application depending on which distro you are on, or download and install direct from the site.
