I’ve been looking into buying a Kindle for use with the thousands of Civil War books which are out of copyright, and in the process of doing that research, I discovered I could “publish” my Civil War blogs with Kindle to allow subscriptions via that product.  For a small monthly fee, you can have TOCWOC – A Civil War Blog delivered right to your Kindle device.  So if you’re a fan of TOCWOC and you’re looking for an even easier way to read the latest on TOCWOC posts on the American Civil War, check it out today!

I have a Kindle, but I live in Canada and I can not receive your Kindle posts. Funny thing that Free Trade.

Robert,

That stinks! I noticed when I subscribed that I had to agree to terms and conditions for the U.S. and Great Britain. I’m kind of surprised Amazon doesn’t allow Canadians to subscribe. Seems like a lost opportunity to me…

Mark,

Cool! Let me know how it looks. Also, how do you like the Kindle? I’m trying to decide between the Nook and Kindle, and I don’t like that the Kindle doesn’t support the EPUB format so prevalent on Google Books, which is where I do most of my primary source research lately.

Love the Kindle, read more then ever. I like that it looks like a printed page and does not give the eye strain that a back lit screen will do, which I think includes the IPad and the Nook Color. You can check out Calibre (google it) and see if it will convert EPuB to the Kindle format. Haven’t tried it myself. I do know that you can get Kindle formatted books from the Gutenberg project.
