I want to import Sartre La Nausée or Houellebecq novels - has anyone else ever managed to import to this a novel they may own on a kindle and how did they go about it and what problems did they encounter? Why can’t I see any French novels already on here - is it a copyright issue? Or maybe I am not looking in the right place…
On kindle most books are protected with DRM. If you want to import a book in LINGQ, you must have a DRM-free copy. There must be ways to remove DRM from a book on kindle, but I think it is difficult.
Public posting of copyrighted material is forbidden. Yes, you might see a few that have eluded being reported and removed, but none-the-less that is the law and the rule.
Importing a novel you own privately to your own account requires a DRM-free copy of the ebook (an ebook without Digital Rights Management / copy protection) in one of the following formats:
EPUB, PDF, DOCX, TXT, MOBI, SRT, ASS, VTT, TTML
Kindle ebooks have DRM which would need to be removed. This is typically done using the Calibre ebook library manager and the noDRM plugin. Search these forums or those at MobileReads.com for more information regarding these tools.
This question is getting answered a lot lately. It was asked yesterday…the title is something about importing Amazon books. Answers in there (on how to import).
I have found that the nodrm plug in no longer works.
Epubor Ultimate works very well.
Oh, ok thank you. I will take a look at that.
I have found it really helpful to read Thrillers as nothing else holds my attention. I keep one thriller and one non-fiction book on the go. The importance of learning incidentally from texts that grab your attention cannot be overstated. (Learning without focusing on learning vocab, because you are focusing on the story line).
Annas-archive is a great resource for e books.
Does anyone know of a similar resource for audiobooks?
This site is quite good + YouTube. I found a lot of book read by regular people on YouTube.
Which language are you looking for audiobooks ? In German I used StoryTel app to listen to 100 audiobooks. It took me 7 months to achieve that goal and overall I paid 60 euros in subscription fees. I got a discounted rate for a year if I showed my student ID card as a proof. Which is way cheaper than buying audiobooks on Audible. Additional advantage of the app is, it remembers the time where you last stop. Also audiobooks can be downloaded offline through app so that you can listen to them on the go without worrying about having Wifi access.
