Hello!!! :)
« on: April 16, 2013, 03:39 PM »
Hi everyone!!

I've been a member here for a bit but have yet to post anything. Terrible, I know!! I've been busy searching through your archive of fanfic....HOLY COW! It's like fanfiction heaven around here   :)

So, my username is boogrl23 but you can call me Kaya if you're so inclined  ;)  I love to read and recently my husband bought me a Kindle paper white, which I'm still trying to learn how to use. I think I've pretty much got Calibre figured out....or maybe not  :D

Anyways, love this site and I look forward to meeting some fellow readers  :-*

-Kaya

I do have a little issue  ^-^

I downloaded EP from here You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

and I don't know what is wrong with it but the format is terrible on my Kindle!! Instead of formatting into paragraphs like a normal story, it's formatted in 2 line paragraphs  >:(     Talk about hard to read!!!!  Maybe I did something wrong in Calibre?? The format says EPUB and PDF in Calibre. And every time I try to convert it to MOBI it takes so long (probably because it says it's 8.8MB) that I've left it to work overnight and it still hasn't finished converting! I don't know but I would love to finish this story!! I started it as a WIP and flounced because of updating taking sooooo long!!

Any help would be awesome  ;D
-Kaya

pdf to epub or anything is TERRIBLE!  You can try what they suggest You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login or what I do is click on convert books in calibre, then on the heuristic processing button. From there check enable heuristic processing, unclick everything else EXCEPT for unwrap lines (set that # to 15-20) and delete blank lines between paragraphs. Then click ok. It wont make the book perfect but it will be readable.
