Using Kindle™ ebooks
Most of our courses
are textbook-based. With a FREE Kindle™ app, you download
textbooks straight to your computer, or read them on a mobile
device. You don't need to buy a separate Kindle™
As well as being
convenient and saving space, books for Kindle™ are frequently
cheaper than the printed edition.
The problem is, most
books are still not available in Kindle™ format. There is a long
way to go before most publishers embrace Kindle™ technology for
their complete list, including many wonderful out-of-print titles which would
then have a new lease of life. The technology exists to scan
books quickly and easily and convert them into the right format.
(This is different from PDF as PDF is not directly compatible).
books, such as those using coloured text, complicated layouts
and lots of illustrations and diagrams, present a problem as
the book needs to be reformatted especially for the electronic
Kindle™ or .mobi format and a lot of tweaking is necessary to
get it right. That means quite an investment in time and money. The gains, though, can be considerable as once ready, there is
no limit to the number of copies that can be sold without
additional resources. Your reading is green with Kindle™!

campaign works - it's simple!
Amazon is doing its
best to persuade publishers to make books available for Kindle™.
If any book in print featured on their website doesn't have a
Kindle edition, you will see a link saying "I'd like to read
this book on Kindle". Click on that link, and that's all you do.
Amazon will notify the publisher that there are readers waiting
for a Kindle edition.
Help us by ALWAYS
clicking on that link whenever you find a book on Amazon that
isn't available on Kindle. It doesn't matter what the book is,
or whether you already have it or not. The more people use the
links, the more publishers will be inundated with Kindle
requests, and they might make the decision to make their entire
lists available in electronic form.
Tell all your friends
and relatives to click on the Kindle links too.
What about our course manuals?
Because our course
manuals are used when people are writing their homework, having
them in .doc or .pdf format is OK because people will have them
on their computers. You can't use a Kindle™ to write with.
However, we are developing some courses that use textbooks to be
created in-house. We will bear Kindle™ in mind during
development to make it easier to convert those courses for
Kindle™. Some of our manuals also contain live links
and need to be on a device with internet access so you can
follow the links.
However, if you have a
stand-alone Kindle™ reader, you can send documents to it
including documents in PDF, DOC or DOCX formats - to read more
about this feature, click on the illustrated Kindle ad at the
top of this page. Certain documents might not format on
the Kindle™ exactly as in the original format.
So if you would like to have our
course manuals on your Kindle™, you can.
