3 Simple Ways to Read PDF on Kindle 1 and Kindle Touch

Since the first generation of Kindle came out, we were deeply amazed by its powerful features and easy-to-use interface. And the coming Kindle Fire also attracts us a lot at the first glance. More and more people already or would like to have a Kindle on hand, but at the same time, they would all face the same question: How to read PDF files, one of the most popular file formats in both business and life, on Kindle?

If you are using Kindle Keyboard, Kindle DX or Kindle Fire, I would say congratulation as they all support PDF reading natively, which means you could directly read PDF files after you transmit them to the device via USB cable. But if you are currently having Kindle 1 and Kindle Touch, it would be truly annoyed to fix the PDF reading issue, as they could only support or better support file formats like Kindle (*.azw), text (*.txt), Mobi (*.mobi, *.prc). Although PDF is said to be supported on Kindle Touch, it appears totally as a mess. It’s painful to read PDF there.

So we are here to introduce 3 simple but effective ways to help you read on Kindle 1 and Kindle Touch by converting PDF into compatible file formats better supported.

1. Send PDFs to your own Kindle Email

We have an Email address in the format of “name”@kindle.com which is connected with our devices. We could simply send the PDFs as attachment to this address and let Amazon convert PDF to Kindle format, and the converted files will be directly sent back to your Kindle device. But the service costs 15 cents per MB, so please remember to zip the files to save money. BTW, to help prevent spam, only addresses you have authorized on the "Manage Your Kindle" page may send files to your Kindle device.

And by sending the attachment to “name”@free.kindle.com, you could free convert PDFs into Kindle format. The converted files would be sent to your computer by this means and you need to sync them back to Kindle via USB cable manually.

2. Convert PDF to Text by using PDF converters

As stated before, text (.txt) is supported by Kindle, so we could use the PDF conversion tools to convert PDF to text. For example, with the help of free Nemo PDF to Word, we can easily achieve that and then save as text (.txt) format. And if you have a lot of files to convert, it would save you a lot of time by using the batch conversion feature. With the simple three steps, “Import”->”Customize”->”Convert”, files can be converted in a few seconds. It really works like a charm.

3. Convert PDF to Mobi (.mobi) by using Calibre-Ebook

The Calibre-Ebook is a free but very powerful ebook management tool which can not only arrange ebooks properly and efficiently but also do the conversion jobs between several file formats. With the easy-to-use interface, even new users can quickly convert the files into the needed format. It is multilingual supported and totally free, and can run on Windows, Mac, Linux and even portable USB.

No matter which means you choose, you would never meet the problem of how to read PDF on Kindle. Let’s enjoy the best Kindle ebook reading altogether.
