"Send to Kindle" From the Web

A couple of days ago, I happened upon a wonderful application for my web browser. But I'm getting ahead of my self. Let me start at the beginning...

Have you ever been on a web page that had a lot to read? I know I have. Typically, I'll start to read a long post only to find out it's way more than I want to read in a sitting. This results in me either stopping what I'm reading or skipping around, glancing to see what I find of interest in the article.

If only there was some way to easily send that information to my Kindle. On top of that, maybe I could somehow get that information to show up on my Kindle in the same way that books do.

Sure, I could copy and paste the article in a Word document, then convert that to the MOBI format, then copy that to my Kindle, and hope I did everything right so as not to run through those steps all over again. But who wants to do that?

What if there was a way, a simple click, that just sent the important information to my Kindle. What if there was...

A couple of days ago, I happened upon a wonderful application for my web browser. This application, Send to Kindle, allows me to install a plug-in for my web browser that allows me to do exactly what I described above. And it works! The application works within the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome

  • Internet Explorer 9

  • Firefox

  • Safari

I'm sure some of you are on the fence about reading the stories that I have written. For you, I've posted 50% excerpts for you to read at the menu item above called "Ebooks by B.C. Young". But maybe you started to read those stories, and you found it a pain to read within your web browser.

Well now, if you have a Kindle, this application will allow you to send it there to read. So now, you have no excuses!

You can install it for your browser by going to this link:

What do you think? Will this application come in handy for you? Do you think it will get you to read my story excerpts? Sound off in the comments below!

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!

Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
