Some Useful Tools

KindleToDo – To-Do List

The Kindle was never meant to replace your smartphone or agenda, but if you need to quickly scribble down some notes or a few to-do’s, there’s a website that makes this simple.


KindleToDo is a minimalistic website aimed at Kindle users that want to either create a simple to-do list, note or glance at a monthly calendar. The site will automatically save and load your to-do list or note on your next visit.

BookMonk & Kinstant – Customizable Startpage


As you can see in the screenshot, BookMonk allows you to create a simple startpage for your Kindle web browser from either your computer or on the Kindle itself. If you’re comfortable with the default links, you can navigate to the site from your Kindle and click on a Start Page link, which will prompt you to save the resulting text file with the links in a Start Page folder in your Kindle. Otherwise, use your computer to modify the links.


Kinstant is another start page website that you don’t actually have to save to your Kindle. You simply navigate to it on your Kindle’s browser and click on the links to a dozen or so Kindle-formatted blogs. You can also add the URLs of your favorite blogs, which will be automatically loaded next time you visit the site.

Mysteria – Get Alerts When Your Favorite Title Becomes Digitized

    Kindlefeeder unfortunately stopped taking any registrations about 2 years ago (2013) and seem to be ignoring all communication from interested users.

    The Kindle Book self publish experience has been a very fun process for me. Do any of you guys have any suggestions on how to attract new readers to your new book?

    While I appreciate this list, I am tiring of this and similar articles always forcussing on Kindle. Although Kindle certainly remains a powerful force in the industry, the books issued in epub format (used by nook and other cutting-edge ereaders) is the industry standard and, unlike kindle books, are often available in non-proprietary format.

    • Jessica Cam W.
      September 15, 2011 at 10:30 pm

      That may be true, but Nook owners could well make use of this and similar posts because even though the sites mentioned on this article target Kindle owners in name, some of the ones with discounted e-books also list plenty of good deals for Nook owners as well. In particular, Pixel of Ink & Books on the Knob often indicate when they find e-books in epub format for Nook owners.

        I appreciate this reply.  I am torn between getting a Nook and a Kindle.  This article nudges me toward the Kindle.  However, this could benefit Nook owners as well.  Additionally, I think you can use Calibre to convert the Kindle format to ePub.

        • Jessica Cam W.
          October 8, 2011 at 5:12 pm

          Yes, Calibre is a lifesaver. Good luck with whatever device you decide to go with!
