When you get your kindle, the next best thing you need to do is get the Calibre software program posted above. This will convert epub (nook and others) books to Mobi which is one of the Kindle book extension. After that, than save the mobi book.
They will be converted to this place on your PC.
c:\user\(your computer name)\documents\Calibre Library
or do a search for the mobi extension.
Last, hook up your kindle to the PC and drag the book to the document file on the kindle.Next go to this place 391 places for free ebooksA lot of these books will be online only, and epub but some are in Kindle format.Keep in mind that these books are not copyrighted and that is why they are free. Anything prior to 1923 are that way. Others of course are ones the author wants to put out free to get a fan base and then maybe a publisher contract.Unless you only read current or almost current books, you will find many free books to read.Kindle is coming out with the ability to read library books which are a acsm format and you currently need Adobe digital software to read them on your computer.
