Free Tor books and the Kindle

If you read SlashDot, or A-list bloggers like John Scalzi, you’ll have seen that the sci-fi publishers Tor are giving away PDF versions of some of their most popular books. Sign up at Tor.com. Yesterday I received the download link for the first of these: Brandon Sanderson’s “Mistborn”, and the first thing I did was to email it to my Kindle. Even though PDF is not officially supported ((Complex PDF documents wind up looking really bad.)), this worked well: I read the prologue and first chapter last night. One (obvious) suggestion: rename the PDF file to something meaningful, rather than the numeric string that Tor uses, before sending it to the Kindle.
Next week it’s going to be John Scalzi’s “Old Man’s War”. W00t! I just finished his “The Android’s Dream”, and I loved it.
