 Transferring text sermons to Kindle

I am looking to transfer some text sermons or books that are available here for free, to my kindle for reading them during my free time. Has anyone done it or being doing it before? I checked DL Moody's works but they are very short hence will need lot of manual effort to compile them into a single PDF and then email them to my kindle ID.

The best solution will be to get all Sermons or texts into PDFs and then email them to my kindle ID which will then get downloaded into Kindle.

 Re: Transferring text sermons to Kindle

brother,

At this point we have not worked on a solution for this as Kindle is still a platform not widely used world-wide and there would be too many platforms to develop access to materials on SermonIndex. we have considered .epub before and did a test run of some of these. PDF has been the best so far and we are looking to re-develop the output parameters to add a nicer title and readable text for each pdf downloaded.

This seems like another option to send a text webpage to your kindle:

This speaks of what you are referring to in emailing pdfs:

EDIT: after searching this could be an option to change a webpage into kindle friendly document:

Amazon has a tutorial:

Simplified Formatting Guide

https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId=A17W8UM0MMSQX6

This guide will help you design Kindle Format 8 (KF8) eBooks in Microsoft Word. If you'd rather design your Kindle eBook in HTML, see our Basic HTML Formatting Guidelines.

you need to email wayneman, he makes tons of kindle books.

 Re:

Thank you Greg and Lysa. In the past I have taken PDF and emailed them to my Kindle ID. But my intention here is to find the books and text materials here as PDF, but most of them in SI are in webpage format. I am really interested in DL Moody texts here in SI. If I can some how easily collect them all as 1 PDF document then I can transfer it to my kindle ID.

Greg I will try the website method you suggested to import into my kindle.

 Re:


I have made my own pdf's in Word. I like 14 font and then save it as a pdf. I downloaded cute.com's free pdf.

I also checked out amazon for D.L. Moody sermon's and they have them! They have about 7 sermons in 1 download for .99 cents. 99 cents is worth all the formatting hassle!!
