If you have a Kindle Fire (after September 2012) or a Kindle Fire HD, don't bother with e-books – get the Universalis app instead!
You can get Universalis e-books in Kindle format covering a day, a week, a month or a year at a time, containing whatever Universalis pages you want.
There are two ways of doing this:
- EITHER download and install the Universalis program onto your computer. Then use it to create whatever e-books you want, whenever you want, and transfer them to your Kindle through the USB cable. After a trial period you need a Universalis registration code (£19.99) to do this, but there is no charge per e-book and no subscription: it is all free. Read all about it here.
- OR visit our web site and ask it to send an e-book to your Kindle by email. Amazon take care of the installation of the e-book onto your Kindle. After a trial period you need a Universalis registration code (£19.99) to do this, but there is no charge per e-book and no subscription: it is all free. Amazon may charge you for e-book delivery.

1. Creating e-books with your computer
First, you install the Universalis program on your computer. Whenever you want a new e-book, you ask the Universalis program to create it for you.
- You can go on doing this for ever. There is no charge, and no subscription to pay.
- You transfer the e-books to your Kindle through the USB cable, so Amazon will not charge you anything.
- You choose which Hours or other pages you want your e-book to contain.
- Your e-book can contain a day's, a week's, a month's or a year's worth of Universalis pages. In practice most people go for a month or a year.
You need a Universalis registration code (£19.99) to use the Universalis program, but you can try it for a month free of charge.

How to do it
First, install the Universalis program on your Mac or Windows computer. There is a 30-day free trial, so if you haven't bought a Universalis registration code yet, you can try out the whole e-book process before deciding if you want to buy.
2. Getting e-books from our site
You can use our web site to create the book you want and send it to Amazon for delivery to your Kindle. We only provide one-month e-books in this way.
You need a Universalis registration code (£19.99) to use this service, but you can try it for a month free of charge.
How much it costs
We don't charge you per book and we don't charge a subscription.
You will need to check Amazon's web site for the latest details of charges for their Personal Documents Service, but as we understand it, the current charges (in December 2012) are as follows:
- Delivery via wireless network (wi-fi): free.
- Delivery via Whispernet (3G) in the USA: $0.15 per megabyte, which means about $0.65 for a month's worth of the complete Liturgy of the Hours and about $0.45 for a month's worth of the Mass Today page.
- Delivery via Whispernet (3G) outside the USA (or to non-USA-registered Kindles): $0.99 per megabyte, which means about $4.30 for a month of the Liturgy of the Hours or $3.05 for Mass Today.
