Dipping a toe into the modern waters...or, yes, I'm finally getting a Kindle. Before anyone is too shocked I'm giving up my stone-age ways it's not that I plan to actually buy books from them or use the WiFi function - but I was looking for an inexpensive eReader that could contain my eBook/word document library already collected and give me text to speech functionality with a minimum of fuss.

While I understand I can send Kindle my pdf and word documents to have them converted and sent to me via email (see, still not taking advantage of the WiFi option as I'm far from any Wifi area), I also want to convert my own documents.

So, for anyone already happy and busy converting documents/eBooks themselves which software do you prefer? Calibre or Mobipocket Creator?

Mobipocket Creator has a steeper learning curve. I use it to create ebooks for sale. It creates very nice formatting for the Kindle (based on special HTML tags and picky hand coding) and interactive Table of Contents. But to just read your own books that you already own, I think Calibre would probably be a much easier to use option.

Thanks, Jordan. That's exactly the type of feedback I was looking for.
