I got rid of a lot of books to clear some space, now I can have them all back in my Kindle.

That's a great site. I've had to figure out how to change the files for my Kindle, but there are a few sites that do that for you.

Great resource. Ta.

What I do is on a book page that you want, click advanced search, click any language to English and any extension to pdf, if the book is in pdf format download away.

I made a small donation and can now use the 'send to Kindle' feature. They pop up in the documents folder.

Good resource, but one downside :
Many well meaning muppets have uploaded books as PDF's without the first clue what they are doing : Each page scanned in as an image file and that image file inserted into the PDF. Thus you can't do anything with the font size when viewing and the pages have no freedom to flow.... And of course you cannot search for text.
Pah! Some people are never satisfied :) :)
