Today’s Periodical – The Politico

February 24, 2010

Another periodical for you to review—The Politico.  Again, this one was created freely using the calibre software (discussion of how to use this software will be in multiple future posts).

This morning’s headline is “Exclusive: White House privately plots 2012 campaign run”

The “official” digital version can be purchased from the Kindle Store—with the ease with which one can acquire it wirelessly and automatically to one’s Kindle as soon as it is released, the $5.99 monthly price is certainly reasonable.

But for those who want to sample this periodical, download to your Kindle today’s edition of  The Politico (free):

The Politico, February 24, 2010 .mobi edition

Once you have added the file to your Kindle–either via direct download or transfer to the ‘documents’ folder to a Kindle plugged into the USB port of a computer or by clicking the link while reading this post on your Kindle–it should appear on your Kindle’s home screen at the top of your list of books.

Directions for Kindle for BlackBerry:

  • When asked if you wish to save the item, select ‘Yes”
  • In the ‘Save file’ dialog box, select the folder icon to explore to a new location.
  • Select ‘Device Memory’ -> ‘home’ -> ‘user’ -> ‘kindle’ -> ‘eBooks’
  • Open up Kindle for BlackBerry. Your ebook will be included in the ‘Home’ screen.
