I use Calibre. It's free and converts to many ebook formats, including Kindle.

The software is also free to download:

That's what I decided to use and the whole book looks completely messed up. Nothing's right about it whatsoever. It's just a major mess.

What file format (like PDF or Word file, like .docx) do you prefer use to convert the book to epub?

I often use .doc or .docx. .PDF I mostly use for ebook promos like advance copies.

Excellent, it actually looks much better since I converted it from docx. to ePub rather than PDF to ePub. Thanks, LC!

Most of it got boring to me...the same pushes, dull feuds, recycled story lines...it was time to move on.

Back then it wasn't watered down PG stuff, and the high-flying cruiserweights were delightful to watch.

What are your thoughts on Ovi scoring his 500th goal?

Pretty awesome, even though I'm not a Caps fan.

Ever? No Way Out 2005. They put on a great show and it was the last time I got to see Eddie perform live months before his death.

If you had to trade either Crosby or Malkin, which would you pick and do you have anyone in mind you'd like to trade for, ideally?

Since both allegedly have no-trade clauses in their contracts, I don't see anything happening in real life anytime soon.

Ideally, I'm in a bind and would have to flip a coin. In any event, one of them for Towes. Kid's one hell of a player and could be an asset to our team.
