Reading on a Kindle.

Thu Mar 17, 2016 5:48 pm

I have just brought a Kindle paperwhite for times when I travel by coach.

One of the things I would like to read on it is the MagPi magazine.

Just sending as a PDF to the kindle is not very satisfactory. Anybody worked out a good way of reformatting the magazine for the Kindle via something like calibre or k2pdfopt or another

Thanks

Tried calibre but did not help that much
