I have an old Kindle Reader from 2012 that I use pretty often. The problem I have with Kindles is that they don’t support
epub books, only
mobi. Sometimes I’ll download someone’s ebook and want to have it on my Kindle, and most processes for converting the files are pretty crappy and time consuming.
It’s a super easy application you run from the Terminal to convert
epub formatted ebooks into
mobi formatted ebooks, and it’s free!
To run kindlegen, just download it from the link above, and open up a Terminal, and do this:
And that’s it! You now have a newly formatted
mobi book ready to go for your Kindle.
