Universalis

Making yourself a Kindle e-book

Each Universalis e-book gives you your chosen hours for every day in your chosen period. Each hour is complete in itself, so you don't have to flick backwards and forwards as you do in a printed book.

You can make an e-book covering up to a year at a time. It will contain whatever Universalis pages you want and it will be tailored to your local calendar.

The e-book you make will work on any Kindle. It will also work on any other device which is not a Kindle but runs Amazon's Kindle app. For instance, this is what you do if you have an Android phone whose version of Android is too old for the Universlais app itself.

Alternatives to creating your own e-book

If you have a modern Kindle Fire or a Kindle Fire HD, don't bother with e-books – get the Universalis app instead!

You can buy ready-made Universalis e-books from Amazon. They cover a year or half a year each. When one runs out, you buy another. The full catalogue is here.

You can send Universalis e-books directly to the Kindle using our web site, using Amazon’s "Personal Documents" service. This works both for the Kindle itself and for Amazon’s Kindle apps on other devices. This service requires a bit of setting up, and it can’t do year-long e-books, but some people find it simpler.
