Default Guide for how to Pirate on the Kindle.

This will be a detailed guide on HOW to pirate books and read them normally on you KINDLE. * NOTE * I used a kindle 3 for this guide.


Anyways lets start


With a Kindle there is pretty much no protection agaisnt pirated books. There are programs which you can simply convert any piece of text into the proper format and it will show on your kindle as you had bought it!


STEP 1______ Finding your book to initially pirate.

Now this could be the easiest step or the hardest step DEPENDING on if you are looking for a popular book or a non popular book.

www.Demonoid.com most likely has the biggest selection of books, and if your looking for a popular book its guaranteed to be on there.

a HUGELY underrated site is www.gigapedia.com Now this site has hundreds of thousands of books from every subject. Its insane and its ALL FREE.

www.thepiratebay.org is a decent one but less trustworthy than the other 2.

www.torrentz.com I have used before with decent success.

**If you have more sites please post and I will update**


STEP 2_________ Converting and adding to your Kindle

So you've finally got that book you want and its in a PDF format or some other wierd format huh?

http://calibre-ebook.com/ Get that program NOW. Its free. Its amazing.

What can that program do besides manage your books? It can convert any book to the proper format!!

!! USE .MOBI FOR OUTPUT FORMAT FOR KINDLE!!!

STEP 3

So you have the program installed right? Well just drag any book you want into it and from there

Convert all books to .mobi initally.

THAN for added pleasure you can click on a book and hit "E" to edit it.

Change the title and authors to clean stuff up but the coolest part is find where it says ISBN. Now go to amazon.com and lookup the ISBN for that book and put it there. IF YOU GO TO DOWNLOAD COVER and theres a ISBN number listed IT WILL DOWNLOAD THE COVER RIGHT AWAY FOR YOU!!

So continue to do this for every book you want until your collection is full, clean, and all in .mobi !!

Simply click send to kindle or w/e and all your books should now appear there!

Necro bumping here. I googled 'pirate kindle books' and was amazed to see this as the top result. Nice work OP.

I'm getting a Kindle 3 tomorrow and now thanks to this post, articles and torrents I have found I am currently in the process of downloading around 4000 books for the Kindle. I have also found some great academic e-book sources (such as http://www.textbooknova.com/).

My only qualm is that amazon will be able to tell I have pirated books, however I am probably just being a little paranoid.

Normally I have a huge amount of respect and reverence for authors and will choose to spend money over pirating books, but alas, I have no money so.. yeah.

<3 Kindle. Looking forward to the next one massively.

Hi. I'm a writer. I write fulltime. It's the only job I have. I allow my books to be used without charge for blind readers, I do pro bono work, and I run free workshops. But the only way I earn money is by getting royalties from books.

I understand the arguments for the Creative Commons, and I support some of them - but if I can't earn money from writing books, I'll have to do something else. That's why it saddens me when I see websites supporting instructions on how to rip off the copyright of thousands of authors.

Yes, but Zoklet supports copyright-free work, no? Hang on a second, what's this at the bottom of the page? Copyright 2000 to 2011, Zoklet. So, Zoklet, let me get this straight in my mind: you support ripping off other people's copyright, but you want to protect your own? Way to go, Zoklet! Your hypocrisy is astounding....

learn from cory doctorow's example?

(also, no they don't support it, most of them have never noticed it, or given it any thought, but here's an amazing thing...despite being copyrighted and own by zok, every bit and byte of the Zoklet data is indexed and findable via google. it's an amazing thing.)

A copy is not a lost sale, it is a new fan discovering you.
How much do you make on a given book sale? a few cents? Did you keep the ebook rights to sell via your own site? do you have any means for fans who found you via piracy to donate if they like your stuff? how are you engaging with those fans? Facebook, twitter, website communities, blogs, ec? any? or do you just anonymously bop around the internet crying"shame shame"?
How's your ebook contract for that matter? Did you know that amazon would give you twice as much per download as wehatever publishing house you're with now, while allowing you much more control over how your work is priced?

For that matter, man the fuck up and tell us who you are, it's worked for other authors. Last time someone went and engaged 4chan about them pirating his comics, his sales took a 300% jump.

What's wrong with IRC? That's how I've been getting all my ebooks. And to convert them I just use Calibre.

Damn, I thought you were gonna say how to put ZIP files you wirelessly download on it or something.

Kindles are pretty cool. I have the original shitty gray one and it was definitely a good buy. You could probably recharge the thing with a shitty dynamo generator in a pinch, for hours of learning.

The newer smaller video playing devices they keep making never cease to amaze me. Holograph and super crisp projection technology is right around the corner. I want to be able to shine porn movies on my city street like an annoying kid with a laser one day.

Is this the same process on the Kobo Glo?

I'm planning on buying one early next year, but I don't know if I can read my books from there. They're all just downloaded from various sites, and I haven't seen many posts about the eReader's third-party product support.
