    Amazon builds Windows tool for sending files to Kindle

    I'm not sure how useful this will be for schools with multiple Kindle's, but I thought it was worth posting after reading some of the comments in Dos_Box's eBook thread.

    Amazon today released a free tool for sending documents to a Kindle from Windows Explorer or from within the print screen of any Windows application. Amazon promises a Mac version is coming soon.

    Each Kindle already comes with its own e-mail address so users can e-mail files to themselves. But "Send to Kindle" for PC potentially makes the process a bit easier and offers the option of sending either to a Kindle device or other mobile devices (like the iPad) that can run the Kindle application. The files can be sent over WiFi for free, or for 15 cents per megabyte (99 cents outside the US) over Amazon's Whispernet service.

    "From Windows Explorer, simply right-click on one or more documents and choose Send to Kindle," Amazon said. "From any other Windows application that can print, select Print and choose Send to Kindle."

    The Windows application supports sending of Word documents, text files, pictures, PDFs, and other types of files including the Kindle's Mobi e-book format. Users can also archive documents in their Kindle Library, from which they can be re-downloaded at any time. (Source)

    calibre is also one to look at. I think it relies on email or USB though
    calibre - E-book management

    it has some powerful conversion tools as well as ereader and supports multiple formats
