The annoying lack of uniformity in the e-book market makes a tool like Hamster Free EbookConverter a necessity. This free and straightforward utility is capable of converting nearly any e-book from the wide variety of open and proprietary e-book formats that have taken over the market. This will allow you to read your EPUB books on your Kindle and load your MOBI-formatted books to iBooks just by clicking on a few keys.
This tiny yet highly efficient program can batch-convert your entire e-book collection into formats that your other e-book readers and handheld devices can understand – namely, PDF, FB2, LIT, MOBI, HTMLZ, or EPUB. As most e-book formats are bound to a specific brand, device or family of products, the fact that the program’s list of output profiles is organized by device rather than format makes a lot of sense. All you have to do is click on the icon that represents the brand or device to which you want to transfer your e-books. Sony, iRiver, Benq, Amazon, BQ Readers, Adobe PDF, Kobo Reader, or Boeye are some of them. For more generic e-book conversions, you are also provided with a few icons for well-known e-book file formats, such as MOBI, LRF, or EPUB. Once you selecta brand, you will be presented with a short list of the various formats that it supports.
All that’s left for you to do is wait and see how Hamster Free EbookConverter converts all your titles. Actually, there’s nothing more you can do before trigging the conversion process, as the program offers a regrettable lack of customization settings. All conversions are “as is”, the output quality of the converted files will be determined by the quality of the source e-books, and the level of compatibility between the input and the output formats selected (especially if PDF is part of the equation). Mostly you will get a decent set of e-books that will be not only readable, but nicely formatted as well. Remember that this is a free tool designed to be of use to anyone needing to move their books between devices without having to be an expert in e-book edition, so just download it and enjoy.
