Yes you can.

I use Calibre to convert the books from ePub to either .mobi or kindle format.
What programme do you use? None I've tried thusfar works for the NLB titles cos of the DRM protection

dun use calibre if you have chinese books tho.

a few years ago when i tried to upload a few bòoks via calibre , the titles of my chinese books got corrupted. the contents page will show squares n symbols for all the chinese titles. the books itself is fine when u go in.

had to do a clean reset and it happen again when i test load a few chinese books and use calibre to upload and sync.

tried to feedback in calibre forum and the dev dun seem to get whats the issue.

Calibre can remove DRM but need to install a plug-in.

I'm just sharing but I've no experience using this plug-in.

Hi guys, need some advice. I started reading chinese novels recently. Eyes get tired easily. Sometimes after reading, my eyes have difficulty focusing on far objects n gets a bit blurry. Okay after i let it rest a bit

Besides age , was wondering if getting a kindle to read will help as compared to reading on PC and HP.

1. Read a bit online n there are some articles touting the benefits of e-ink. Was hoping that there might be peeps here with similar prob and can actually share their real life experience.

2. Any major diff between the basic kindles (167ppi) compared to the paperwhites (300ppi)? Does higher ppi help in reducing eye strain?

TIA!

if reading hardcopy newspaper causes u the same fatigue.
then no eink will not be of much help.. age is the main cause here i strongly believe.
eink however will definitely be better for reading in the long run due to less strain induced.

i think higher ppi makes the text looks sharper.
imo the cheapest paperwhite will do its job just fine.

I didn't see this mentioned about Paperwhite's support of WiFi bands.

FYI, my Kindle Paperwhite 3 (2015) only supports 2.4Ghz band.

I suspect the latest Paperwhite 4 also only supports 2.4Ghz band.

Hi there my daughter has just cracked her Kindle's screen. As the rest of the tablet is still very new, we are hoping to get it fixed. Can a kind soul provide us some information or direction to get it fixed? Thanks for reading.

best buy new set from carousel or amazon. i doubt its possible to get it fixed in Singapore and the repair cost by amazon will be 80% of the cost of a new kindle.

Qoo10 (this is my referral link. if dun wan, can just search the item yourself )
https://qoo.tn/BLF76U/Q125917320

$168 - $20 (gold member 20 off 150 coupon), then pay via qcoins. Buy qcoin using the 10% amex qcoin promo. Will be abt $130 w foc shipping plus screen protector.

So $130 a good price? Worth paying $4 more for US set?

Warranty is covered in this manner. Is okay right?

~ BestSGElectronics will provide local warranty support for Amzaon Kindle E-Reader, first 7 days 1 for 1 exchange and remaining 6 months repair by Amazon (USA/Japan, depending on whether the set is a US Set or Japan Set).

~ For 6 months warranty by Amazon (USA), please register your product warranty with BestSGElectronics within 7 days from the date received. Unregistered product has only 7 days local warranty.

~ Local warranty support will commence on the date of purchase and does not include shipping fee to/fro to BestSGElectronics or Amazon USA/Japan. Shipping fee to Amazon and back to Singapore is to be paid by buyer.

~ Customer will cover the return postage fee to us while GeekB!te will cover the return postage fee to you.
