Forum Topic: Kindle (mobi) version of the book?
Hi - do you have any plans for a Kindle version of the book ?

Yes! But I'll not be able to get to it for awhile due to current obligations. I plan on making both this book and Digging into WordPress available in multiple formats :)
Which of the pdf versions is the best for converting to .mobi?
Just for info - I had zero success when I tried that. Admittedly I was using free PDF to .mobi conversion apps. Font size in the converted .mobi was way too small. I tried the different PDF versions. I'd be interested to hear if you have better results.
I can't remember which pdf version I tried but it wasn't successful. The font size wasn't the issue for me instead I had pages interwoven with each other. I used Calibre to convert and Calibre is always hit-or-miss for pdf to mobi.
Steve, what conversion app did you use?
Sorry for the delay in replying - I thought I was notified when there were follow up posts but I must have forgotten to check that option.
I think it was Calibre (http://www.calibre-ebook.com/) though I tried quite a few plus some of the online conversion facilities. I had varying success, straight text was OK but usually too small. Mixed text and graphics was usually problematic one way or another.
In the end I gave up and posted the question.
