Adding books to Kindle paperwhite

I have a large library of books, and I have installed calibre, but it's going right over my head.

I have seen a book I'd like to try reading.


Can anyone help me without the gobbledygook?

Sorry Terry only just seen your post, I had a look on Google this morning and it seems I have a Kindle email address, so I sent an email to it with a PDF attached and I just got this email from Amazon/Kindle, looks like they converted it to Mobi as well so I just need to see if it's there for me to read, I have plenty of books to read, but before bed, I like to sit lights out in the servatory to read a few pages, it settles me down for bed.

That's interesting Kev - does that mean amazon are collaborating in loading non-amazon books onto the kindle?

Kindle is as you say an E Reader and can read a good few file types so they made it open, I sent one over that was a PDF and it got turned into a Mobi file, it can also read text and doc files etc.

I wonder what the response would be if you sent over a file that was in the format of an e-book (can't remember the various formats they used to use) but one that wasn't theirs?

I'm not sure what other formats there are to be honest, it maybe that they just went with whatever was popular.
