Another use for eBook Readers

A lot of us like our gadgets be it ipads, tablets, kindles or smartphones. Additionally most handbooks, travel policies, breakdown cover documents, etc. are available in PDF format.

By using Calibre eBook Management, as posted by Meister in the link, It is possible to convert these PDF files to almost any format to suit your preferred reader.

For our summer trip to France, I have the breakdown documents, travel insurance, booking references, etc. all ready to be put on my Kindle.

Mellow

I love Calibre, Plus with the free international 3G access (my 3G keyboard Kindle) I can contact anyone I need to from the beach ( I'm off to Cuba in a few weeks where the phone and internet charges are rather high!)

kindle +Calibre + loads of ebooks + sun =
