I read somewhere and can't find it now, that you have 2 addresses on Kindle.  one; ***@kindle.com  and the other: ***@free.kindle.com.  What I can't work out is how I create the address at free.kindle.com.  If I want kindle  to convert files to kindle format, will they do it for free at free.kindle.com?  Or do I need to send them to kindle..com?  I can't find any instructions anywhere on kindle site or in user manual.  They may be there, but are well hidden!  Can anyone advise me?  The PDFs are not too comfortable for my ageing eyes to read... Sad

Calibre is a freeware ebook software that can convert many formats, choosing mobi will put it in native kindle format.

You only need to use the *.free.kindle.com if you have a 3G wireless + WiFI Kindle and don't want to be charged for the delivery of a document over 3G. It is the same as your regular kindle email, but you simply add the "free" to it. It will automatically download when you next connect via WiFi.

If you only have the wifi Kindle, don't worry about it. You only need the one address to send your files.

The answer is that anything you send to ***@free.kindle.com will be converted for free and sent to your email account of record. There is also free software you can use that will convert books or text to the kindle format. Forum rules prevent me from posting a link to this software, but search for "calibre" on Google and click on the top result.

Robert Balsinger:

PASTOR DONG C.TELAN:

BRIAN, CAN YOU TELL HOW DO YOU ADD CHAPTER LINKS IN EXPORTING.

 

One way is to export to Word

Create the links
>select text
>Ctrl K
>Create Bookmark

>Link to the bookmark

There is another way to create links in your word docs. If someone is interested in the details let me know. Basically, export from Logos to Word. Find a distinguishing characteristic about the Chapter headings (e.g. 24 pt font) and do a Find/replace for all text that meet those characteristics. Replace it with the "Heading 1" style. If you want to do sub-headings for that resource do the same thing (e.g. bold italic 12pt.) and replace it all with "Heading 2" style. Now create a Table of Contents for your document and word will automatically link to chapters and sub-headings.

If anyone wants more detailed instructions on one of these steps, please let me know.

Nice work.  Thanks for sharing!

Does anyone have any tips for the fastest way to export text to Word?  Do you have to highlight and scroll, or is there a better way?

Thanks for this information. I've nicely converted a Logos book to Kindle, with a table on contents. I've even been able to get the real author mentioned, which I'm happy about.

What I still would like is to move between the chapters by using the right button on the five-point button. Does anyone know how to do this?

I wasn't able to sent the word 2007, neither the word 1997/2003 file (docx and doc) to my kindle, so i used Mobipocket instead.

I set my page size to 4 X 5.5. This way there is no zooming. I then save the word doc as a pdf and email it to the Kindle. While the table of contents is not linked when I do this, the page numbers are listed so I simply say "go to the beginning of the book" and then punch the page number listed in the table of contents to go to that heading. I've never tried the Mobipocket route though. when I do the PDF the normal page buttons on the Kindle work nicely and it feels very much like a kindle book. I can even bookmark, highlight, share, and perform dictionary lookups.

I'm new to LOGOS and have been reading through the forums.  I am wanting to buy a Kindle, JUST TO READ the books and not do work....

Is this possible? It seems like, from what was said, that books need to be copied into a word format before transferring to Kindle.  Is this still true?  How much of a hassle is it?

Thank you.

Which Kindle are you looking at? The Fire might be able to run the android app, but I am unsure at this time. As far as regular Kindles go, Logos does NOT provide any support for converting books. If you aren't worried about legal issues, you can try the advice above.

I do it quit regularly, either parts of the book or the whole book.

Just select the whole text (sometimes it needs to be done in 2 or 3 times, because the text is too large to do it in in time), copy it, and paste it in word.
The next thing I do, is create a table of contents in word. 1.st make the chapternames 'heading 1' and if you want you can make subsections 'heading 2'. Then create the table of contents. The reason I do this, is so that you can in Kindle, to the table of contents, and then jump to the chapter you want. It also makes it possible to use the five-way control on your kindle.

Next, what you can do, is download a copy of the cover of your book (just look for it in google pictures) and add it at the beginning of your word document. In that way  you have your cover too, if you like that kind of thing.

Unformtunately, you cannot see the author of the book on your kindle list, even if you have entered the info in your word document. It will show up with your email adress as author.

If you would like to have the author name, then you could use free programas like mobi pocket or calibre, but if you do that, then you can't use the five way control.

So, it's not that difficult, takes maybe 15 minutes or so.

Good luck and have fun with your Kindle

I just use the experimental web browser on the Kindle, go to www.biblia.com, choose the mobile version link, sign into my account, and then click on the book in my library that I want to read. I enlarge the fonts and enjoy the book. It is very simple and useful to me. Of course, you have to be online via WiFi or 3G. I have what is now called the Kindle Keyboard with WiFi/3G, so I can access my Logos library virtually anywhere.

Unfortunately, if what I've read is correct, Amazon has stripped the 3G capability of the soon-to-be-released Kindle Touch WiFi/3G to only the Amazon Store and Wikipedia. Still, your Logos books can be accessed via WiFi.

I thought it did with the Vyrso app or do you mean a physical device?

Andre - When you are replying to someone, it is often helpful to quote them so that there is some context. If you need to learn how to do this, see "Quote Someone" below my post.

If you are looking for a reader for your Logos 4 books, Vyrso fills the role of a casual reader very nicely.  I know it has an Android version, I use it for reading every day.  Very nice to have the book open to where I left off as soon as I open the app.  There is probably also an iOS version, I don't know, I don't use Apple anything.

Hi Craig, I have Vyrso on my ipad, and you are correct, it is also avaialable as Android.  It is not avaialable from the Amazon/Kindle store, however, but you can sideload it onto your Kindle Fire.  Note also, the above thread is about 1 year old, so some of the discussion and relevance may be outdated.  Thanks for posting, and welcome!  I also like reading my books on Vyrso.  Currently I am reading "Red Letter Christians" by Campolo and Claiborne, as well as Jesus: A Theography by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola, both purchased through Vyrso.  I take notes on them as well, and I love that it transfers into my Logos use, too.

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

Dan, there is a difference between the kindle fire and other kindles. The use of Vyrso does not help.  On the regular old Kindle the text is more like a book and easier for the eyes.  This is the big advantage of the kindle.  Outside of that, everything can be done on a tablet.
