Reading does take a lot of time

It's now been a month since I got my own Kindle 3. We had a Kindle 2 for almost a year, but that wasn't mine. It has seen some heavy use, so I wanted one for myself. And while I never finished any novel on my iPad, I did read eight books in the last month on the Kindle 3.

Since the Kindle is only on its second full charge and weighs next to nothing, it's going with me, as soon as I carry even a small bag and expect to have some time to read. So it's all good.

I'd love to have one of these, unfortunately they are hard to get in Beijing, China. I searched online already without success and also went to some of the famous malls in the city but never had the luck to spot.

Any ideas on how to obtain one in Beijing?

regards,

Max

I think you can only buy one directly from amazon.com.

No, unfortunately this does not work:

Volker, wie bringst du deine Calibre-Lib auf den Kindle? Konvertierst du EPUB nach MOBI? Und funktioniert die Übertragung ebenfalls in Calibre? Danke und Gruß.

Frank, ja, mobi ist mein bevorzugtes Format. Ich haue die epub mittlerweile gleich weg. Kann man aus mobi wieder erzeugen, wenn das mal nötig sein sollte.

Es ist sehr einfach, Bücher auf das Kindle zu übertragen. Das taucht einfach als Laufwerk auf, und alles, was in Documents liegt, wird ggfls erkannt. Calibre macht das auch direkt aus der Anwendung raus, und mittlerweile ist das mein bevorzugter Weg, Bücher zu übertragen. Aber wenn mal "Not am Mann" ist, dann schiebe ich die Datei einfach von Hand drauf.

Danke schön. Reading vowe.net can be expensive ;-) but it is nerdy fun.
