Half of what I lug with me on a plane or train is stuff from work that I have to read. Much of it is Word documents, some PDFs. My goal was to see how much of this paper I could convert for the Kindle.
This is as easy as it gets. You just email your document to the folks at Kindle and they will convert it and send it back to your Kindle wirelessly, all for the exorbitant fee of ten cents. That’s right, a dime. You can send a Word document and certain kinds of PDFs to email@example.com and they will shoot it back onto your Kindle in a jiffy (really, mine was there as soon as I checked for it a minute or two later), or you can send the document to firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will email the converted document right back to you at no charge. Just connect the USB and drag it into the “documents” folder on your Kindle.
