A Better FanFiction Downloader ( with

Hey folks.

Just a quick note to let you know that there is a better fanfiction downloader out there...and it works on (((cue the angels singing here)))

The only downside is it does have size limitations. The only real issue you will run into with that, and it is a real freaking annoying one, is that MoTU is too big to download. But I have raised the issue with the administrator and hopefully they will fix it.

But please, check this downloader out (google powered, ladies). Quick and easy.

I now use this, and then the Calibre program to download stories and place on my Kindle. Calibre will convert your downloaded fanfics into any type needed epub etc and download directly onto whatever reader you may be using. Check it out.

Ladies, we have to get a little tech savvy for our porn. Deal with it. ;)

FINALLY...FANFICTION.NET ON YOUR KINDLE: Step by step instructions for setting up chapter navigation reading on from your Kindle

W00T! You CAN read whole stories from your Kindle!!!

So the Kindle dilema has always been that you can get into a single chapter of a story on from your Kindle, but you can't make the chapter navigation keys fuction.

I just found out how to make it work!!! W00t!

My original instructions were are step by step instructions to show you how to get to a fanfic story and make it work from turning on your Kindle to getting to your story....

* Hit your menu button
* Select Turn Wireless on
* Hit menu button
* Select Experimental
* Select Basic Web

This should take you to Bookmarks page (note: if you have accessed web previously from Kindle, it may open to your last location initially. If it does, just hit menu again and select Bookmarks to get to your Bookmarks list)

* Select Google
* Type in and the name of the story you want to read

Google will pull up a number of hits...pick one that is a chapter of the story you are looking for and select it. Once the story page comes up...

* Hit your menu button
* Select Advanced Mode
* Hit your menu button
* Select Settings
* Select Enable Java Script

And start reading..changing your (Aa) text settings button if needed. If you are in the wrong chapter, go to the last page and you will see the Jump box...your cursor button will now work on that and you can go to whatever chapter you want!

Time saving tip: Once you are in a story that you will want to come back to on different occasions ( chapters update)..hit your menu button and select "bookmark this page." A direct link to that story will then show up on your Bookmarks list for next time.

Also, once you have these settings set, they become default, so you don't have to reset your settings each time. Happy reading ladies....

How to Navigate on your Kindle the Kindle dilema is that you can get into a chapter of a story on from your Kindle, but you can't make the chapter navigation keys fuction.

I just found out how to make it work!!! W00t!

Okay, go to your experimental web and get to your fanction story of choice via google. Doesn't matter what chapter you get into, just get it pulled up.

Now hit your MENU button and select ADVANCED MODE.

Once in Advanced Mode, hit your MENU button and select SETTINGS. Now select ENABLE JAVA SCRIPT.

Bam....the chapter navigation works. You may have to play around with the text size..but holy hell works!

This is hot off the presses, I just did an experimental test run. If, when using this, you develop tips to make it work better for you, please add via comments.

How to download fanfic stories onto your Kindle

Okay, first of all, I am a bloggee, not a blogger, so this is probably going to look pretty lame. It is a miracle I figured out screenshots, okay?? But I get so much joy out of downloading fanfics onto my Kindle for easy reading and have had so many people ask me about it, I thought I may as well give a post a shot. And it is really hard to try and help people out with 140 twitter characters...just sayin'.

So, here goes. How to download fanfiction onto your Kindle 101.

Step 1...get yourself a fanfiction downloader program...this is the one I recommend:

Here is what it will look like once you download it...

Next, go and get the story you want to download and copy the URL

Then paste the URL into your downloader

Hit Continue on steps 1, 2 and 3 (you want to save as mobipocket ebook). After the third "continue," you will see this....

Now this story has been copied onto your C-drive. Open up that folder and see, there it is!! Woot! You are almost there. Plug your Kindle into your computer, and your Kindle folder will open. Drag and drop the mobi file version of your story into your Kindle Documents folder.

Now eject your Kindle

And now the story is on your Kindle:

Once you get used to the process, it takes less that one minute to get a story from onto your Kindle.

And now you can enjoy fanfic on the go! Happy reading.
