    Does anyone here have used amazon kindle?
    Is it good to read programming books on it? I have researched a bit, and i came to know that it's pretty hard to read programming books on it.
    But i think if i convert the pdf to kindle format then it won't be any problem?And also i won't be buying books for kindle, i will be just downloading books from internet(warez) and then i will be converting it to amazon kindle supported format.Does anybody have any experience with this?

    The Kindle is amazing.

    Depends on the way the .pdf itself is laid out on how it comes out on the Kindle. I personally avoid reading .pdfs on it.

    The program that converts .pdfs to .mobi is call Caliber. It doesn't do the greatest jobs on pdf > mobi but any other format > mobi is great.

    Yea Calibre is great, but PDF -> MOBI is not the best solution.
    If you can try to get them in EPUB format and convert to MOBI or get them in MOBI right away.
