How to Read a 180 eBook on your handheld eBook reader… Instructions provided by Danyelle…
If you have a Kindle (or Nook, or any e-reader that supports pdf files) it’s easy to read any of Matt’s 180 Degree books you may have on your computer. Just take your handy-dandy USB connector cord, connect up your Kindle to your computer, and make sure your computer recognizes the Kindle.
(I ran into a problem at this point, because we charge our cell phones from our USB drives on the front side of the CPU, and the computer would not recognize my Kindle as a piece of hardware to transfer files to – only as a device to be charged. So we plugged the cord into the USB drive on the back side of the CPU and it recognized the Kindle fine. Fortunately we have a monkey that does small, tight-space jobs like that. Who says kids can’t earn their keep?)
Now just open up the 180 Degree pdf file you want to transfer. Click on the little square button on the top toolbar that looks like a floppy disk. It will save the pdf to whatever location you would like – in this case, the document/book folder on your Kindle. If you don’t see the Kindle folder at first, just keep clicking the green “up arrow” button until you see a folder marked “external USB drive” and/or “Kindle.” Super easy.
The 180D and 180 Metabolism blogs are also now available on Kindle.
They are not free ($0.99 per month), as Amazon charges for this service, but you can subscribe and read all of your favorite 180 junk on an eBook reader. The links below should take you there if you are interested. Don’t be shy about writing a review of the blogs while you’re there!

And let’s hear it for Danyelle! Whoopie! Yay! Hip-hip hooray! She does report that the font is a little small when reading it on the Kindle so if anyone has a solution for that (other than me having to reformat the books) please let me know.

Hey Matt, a quick search on this, it looks like you can get software to convert from .pdf to ePub (for Nooks) and I saw a company that converts .pdf to the Kindle format. You email the .pdf to them and they convert it for you. Hopefully they are legit and not stealing ebooks, LOL! Not sure of the prices although it looked like the one software package for converting to ePub was $29.95.
I forgot to mention that the purpose of my last post was that if the book is in the native format for the device, whether it is a Kindle or a Nook, you can adjust the font size.
That's the missing link I couldn't find. He needs a Kindle and Nook format offering in addition to the pdf form. I didn't know you could Kindle-ize a book without selling it through Amazon. Thanks.
Did you know that you were mentioned in Jimmy Moore's podcast interview with Dr. Kurt Harris? What did you think?
I did not anonymous.
Thanks Will. I look into it.
Calibre is a good solution. Allows you to take a little more charge of your ebook collection than you can otherwise — it'll shoot ebooks into and out of your device, and it'll convert from one format to another. (Kindle reads Mobi format, btw.) Turning PDFs into Mobis work acceptably well — but only in the case of documents that don't have many visuals, and that don't have complicated formatting. If the document does have a lot of visuals and/or fancy formatting (boxes, charts, etc), forget it.
You can format your material yourself for the Kindle (and even sell it via Amazon) if you're clever and have some persistence. If you don't, there are outfits that'll do it for you for a price.
Thanks for that link, Ray! That's really one useful piece of software.
And also. My kidnle is finally there. Hooray!
Ok, how the hell much is a Kindle? You kids and your technology is killing me.
This is really great information found here…. Keep posting such an interesting information.
I just subscribed to both of your blogs on my Kindle. I like reading it on the Kindle a lot better than on my computer.
I've been following many of your recommendations and find your perspective refreshing so I'm happy to pay for the ability to read more easily on my Kindle.
