Subject: Tech: Kindle Paperwhite and PDF
From: MartinRyan

Is anyone using a a Kindle Paperwhite device - in particular with PDF files? I have a standard Kindle (4?) with which I'm generally very happy. However - it is very clumsy at handling PDF files. Since my main use for the Kindle is to keep a library of old books (song-related and other) , many of which are freely available online, handling PDFs is important. Conversion of such texts to other formats is often very clumsy.

My local store is out of stock - I think there's an improved version either just out or about to appear... so I can't experiment directly for now.

Regards
p.s. Incidentally, I use the Calibre freeware to organise my Kindle library - it's excellent.

Paper white will handle PDFs well enough but is generally too small to put song books on unless your eyesight is better than mine.

What we need is a bigger Kindle (I'd pay good money for an A4 one).

Thanks for that, IanC. I actually prefer the small format and my eyes are holding up well, so far!

What we actually need is an A4 reader that fits into our shirt pockets, folded like real paper. One day it will come.

My Kindle Fire works very well with *.pdf and *.doc files. The price of the basic Kindle Fire has gone way down. I'd recommend it.

Yes, Joe - the small FIre device and the new Paperwhite are similarly priced, this side of the pond, at this stage. I suspect that, purely as a reading device rather than a reader/tablet, the Paperwhite may suit me better. Hope to have a good look at both over the weekend in Dublin.

Regards
