Dedicated fangirl or crazed?  
I've finally finished my up-to-date word/pdf copy of A Farm in Iowa (AO3) by sheafrotherdon

ETA: Of course, I've checked how the formatting looks on my Kindle, and everything I had centered has now been moved to left alignment, but meh. The important part is everything is still there!



A Farm in Iowa (the complete series)*:
epub (nook) // mobi (kindle)

If you need it in another format let me know.

Total count:
543 pages
~180,000 words

*This comes without a table of contents. If you want one, feel free to create one - may you have better luck than I.

I have this thing where I like to make things more complicated than they need to be.

I'm lazy. If the story is on AO3 I just use the handy download button to put the stories on my PC. Then I drag them onto my kindle and link them by creating a collection.

I've created collections based on fandom, so when I go to download an entire series, I want them all in one file. I have found a pretty easy way to get entire series off AO3 and into one big file: I download the fics as PDF files, and then I use MergePDF to merge them into one big PDF, and then I convert it to mobi and put it on my kindle :P

I might try your method for stories that are not on AO3, but my kindle has wifi so it's probably easier to use the built in browser.

Yeah, it probably would be easier to use your build in browser, and I'd understand if you'd want to do that!

So far, I don't have too many fandoms to collect. One thing I wish I could do with kindle is have sub catagories within my collections.

I've noticed Farm in Iowa had a lot of small fic - so I can see how you'd want to link those all up. I mostly read the shorter fic online to save clutter, and download the big stories which will take longer to read.

I've often wished the same thing! It's why I ended up creating 1 big file for series', rather than downloading each individual installment. Then I won't have to hunt for the various pieces.

I understand that, and it makes a lot of sense! I know on AO3 sheafrotherdon has posted a lot of the smaller fics, too.
