I'm so glad Kindle is battery operated!
My question is (and forgive me if this is repetitive but search didn't help me) can one charge this device while the button is switched to "off"?
My cell phone must be turned off in order to charge; I just want a definitive answer if the Kindle must be on in order to charge.
Thanks in advance.
You probably also read that you should not let it run down too low before recharging...as some devices do recommend. In the case of Kindle, recharging before it gets very low adds length to the life of the battery.
Two of my dearest friends are now proud owners. I tried to be objective in describing mine...very difficult to do! I certainly didn't want to mislead them but they are absolutely delighted with them.
Thinking it over, I realized this guy is a wonderful philosopher and has a good take on life as it should be lived. In Espresso Tales, I had to chuckle when even the dog`s thoughts were voiced and he couldn`t resist taking a nip of an impossible woman`s ankle. Haven`t you had a similar wish sometime?
Post American World is a slow read for me, but very helpful in trying to understand the world as it really is.
Forty Signs of Rain
Fifty Degrees Below
Sixty Days and Counting
The three ought really to have been a single tightly edited volume, but as a meditation on our current environment and the calamity of climate change on that daily environment, it's quite interesting. The trilogy is closely focused on the National Science Foundation (NSF) and how the handling of science in that agency both hinders and helps research.
I'm retired and my wife still works, so I'm at loose ends. I read pretty much all day. Thank goodness for Gutenberg.org, or I'd be broke!
I get an RSS feed from Gutenberg that lists all the new books they add each day. They typically add about a dozen and I'll find 2 or 3 of those interesting enough to download. I've got a backlog of over 300 books on my Kindle, so I'm never at a loss for something to read.
It's good to hear from you again, I'm glad you're back.
You state that you download from Gutenburg. Do you download directly? Do you have to change the format of the downloads in any way?
Star I hope you are getting better.
Given a choice of Gutenberg formats, I always choose HTML. I like HTML because it often includes pictures and a hot-linked table of contents. Text files don't have that.
I use Gutenberg a lot more than I purchase from Kindle store, and I download to my PC too. If you know some HTML and a little bit of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) you can make some adjustments to the .txt file in Mobipocket Creator to create your own table of contents. Also, using Mobipocket Creator you can add some metadata, including the author's name. If you just put a .txt file onto your Kindle, you yourself will appear as the author, but adding the metadata in Mobipocket Creator lets you include the real author's name, which can be helpful for sorting by author name on your Kindle.
Mobipocket Creator, incidentally, is freeware so you don't have to pay for the software.
By the way, here's a good basic explanation of how to create Kindle books using Mobipocket Creator. It's pretty basic, but if you know HTML and CSS at a more advanced level you can figure out how to do even more with Mobipocket Creator.
