Quick Tip: FREE News & Blogs on the Kindle International Edition

Filed under: calibre, kindle, news, Readers — Tags: , , — talkintech @ 10:37 pm

I admit!  I am a news junkie.  I start my day poring through Engadget, Gizmodo, Lifehacker, Downloadsquad and io9.  Then I go over to Inquirer.net for local news.  This habit has been occupying a lot of time in the morning, preventing me to do legitimate work while surfing the ‘net.  Enter Calibre.

Calibre has a built-in facility to dowload blogs and news and I have been using it to get the blogs and news first thing in the morning.  After the update, I plug in my Kindle and Calibre automagically transfer those newly downloaded stuff, allowing me to read all those blogs and news later in the day.

I understand that it costs $$$ to download news and blogs to the Kindle through Whispernet but thanks to Calibre, I get to read them for the low, low price of FREE.
