Read the First two Chapters of Life Nomadic for Free NOW! + A Contest

As I mentioned last week, I'm about to release the book version of Life Nomadic! It's just over 150 pages of travel related awesomeness. Here are some of the many topics I talk about in it:

My goal when writing the book was to make it ESSENTIAL reading for any traveler or nomad, but also for it to be VERY valuable to even the casual traveler or for someone who doesn't travel at all (by sharing interesting stories and life philosophies). Some parts of the book cover topics I've covered here, but almost all of it is brand new.

Anyway, I'll go more into detail when I release the book on MONDAY 10/5. For now, enjoy reading the first two chapters. But first....

Converting between Kindle, epub, etc.

On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL

So I'm a big believer in my Kindle, I love the thing and I think e-ink readers are the future. I read a lot, I like the feel of paper, but the convenience of having 200 books with me on a slim light device is unbeatable.

I also write on here and produce content, and keeping abreast of the various formats that can be published in is a bit of headache. But Alfred Pang does a great job explaining the current formats and tools to convert between them here - http://alfredpang.com/2010/11/minimalist-workday-in-epub-and-kindle-format/ -

What are all the formats for?

E-books can come in many different formats. ePub, Kindle (MOBI), text, HTML, PDF, Word documents, etc.

Independently produced ebooks (such as Minimalist Workday) usually comes as PDFs. The advantage is that PDFs print out onto paper very well and the exact formatting of the document will not change.
