The Beating Broke Guide to Your Credit Score is a guide that I wrote a while back, that has been available as a download here on the site as a .pdf document for some time. With the recent rise in usage for ebook readers, I thought it was time that it got converted over and presented as a kindle ebook. So, that’s exactly what I did last weekend. It’s now available in the Kindle store on Amazon for only $0.99. It’s still available as a pdf download here for free, if that’s what you want, but I know some would rather have it directly on their reader. It’s also been made available in the epub format (free) on Smashwords.
I started this blog to share what I know and what I was learning about personal finance. Along the way I’ve met and found many blogging friends. Please feel free to connect with me on the Beating Broke accounts: Twitter and Facebook.

Very cool. How difficult was it to convert to epub and publish on Amazon?
It wasn’t terribly difficult. I think the biggest issues I had were the images needed to be scaled down a lot to fit the smaller screen, and there was a lot of errant formatting that the converters picked up that aren’t evident in the pdf. All told, I think it took about 2-3 hours to convert for Kindle. Keep in mind, I was learning the process as I went, so it took a lot longer than it will next time. The nice thing is that once it was cleaned up and ready for kindle conversion, there were just a few changes to be made to load into smashwords for epub.

This is a great resource. Cool that it is now on Kindle.
Sorry if I jumped the gun on you in the Yakezie forum!
No worries, Marie! The PDF has been published for a while, so no harm done!
That’s pretty neat that you have a Kindle book now! Great resource by the way..
