As writers, one of the things we need to do is research. Whether it is for historical, geographical, cultural, religious or any number of subjects, we want to be accurate. This could mean hours at the library or web searches. It could also mean page after page of ink covered paper which, when your research is finished, you’ll likely throw away (If not right away, certainly later).
I recently came across an interesting App for Kindle to help me collect my research from the web by way of author C.J. Lyons , who uses it herself. So I thought to myself, “If C.J. uses it, why not me?” And so I have tried it and highly recommend it. The App is called “SENDtoREADER” .
Once on the site you will need to register and then set up your Kindle to receive the documents. After you have done that, you can send articles to your Kindle to your heart’s content. The added plus is that they are stored in your “Personal Documents” folder in “Manage Your Kindle”. Should you accidentally erase any article, know that it is being stored on my Kindle account and can sent to your Kindle again any time you want. Furthermore, SENDtoREADER also keeps a record on your user page. From here you can delete, resend, share and, if need be re-edit.
I like using the “Compose” page as it gives me more control. Input Title, Author, and URL you would like to convert and press import. Edit out what you don’t want. Click Send To Kindle when done and it will be delivered to your device. As a reference mark, the source URL is included at the end of the document. Always nice to know, right?
Once in your Kindle, treat it like a book. Font size can be changed if needed. I think you’ll like it. With 5GB of storage space in you “Personal Documents” folder it will take some time to fill up.
For my current project, “Tears”, I have sent over 30 articles of research to my kindle device for closer study. Some are short and there is one which would have required about 15 printed pages. So no more printing innumerable pages to slog through. Just calmly sitting in your easy chair reading your Kindle.
