Death of a Bookstore & Public Domain Books for Kindle

I've heard recently Borders Bookstore will be shutting down completely. If I recall correctly, the report I read said that all their stores will be shutting down in a few months. We've had a few of their stores close down already in my area.

In related book news, this link purports to put free public domain Google books on your Kindle. I haven't tried it yet, someone let me know if it works.

www.retroread.com does work with some success. It depends on the quality of the Google Book's epub file.

Another option is this free program, Calibre:

calibre - E-book management - http://calibre-ebook.com/

Thanks for the suggestion about retroread.

I have used this: http://www.gutenberg.org/ with some success.

Peace.
