Is it possible to copy and paste text from a web-page into a document, save it to appropriate format and use it on the Kindle? Is there any software that can easily convert offline internet pages (downloaded from httrack) into a format to use on the Kindle?
Amazon has a newer E-ink reader called Kindle Paperwhite
62% more pixels for unsurpassed resolution
25% better contrast for sharp, dark text
BTW, there is an app called Calibre
, a cross platform program in which you can convert PDFs into mobi or azw files for kindle reader. It also converts to epub and other formats.
Some PDFs don't convert well and will have stray artifacts and some weird formatting due to some proprietary elements of PDFs but some have converted nicely.
Also converting PDFs to mobi/azw format will allow you to use all the kindle reader's features whereas a PDF format the features will be limited.
Hope this helps.
PS: I hope one day they make a color E-ink reader
