I'm looking to view Talmud bavli in standard Oz v'hdar daf format on Kindle. Has anyone seen this?

I know how to do this; however, I am wondering if someone has already done this and can provide the results, whether for free or commercially.

  • It isn't very useful. because of the size of the kindle, you must zoom in and out constantly, which as you know in the kindle is annoying because of the e-ink display. On the Kindle fire it might be another story... – user8909 Feb 17 '15 at 1:16
  • @Mendy there's a larger Kindle (10" I think?) that they developed with textbooks in mind. It might work ok on that for some people. – Monica Cellio Mar 19 '15 at 14:33

It'll take a couple of steps, but it's doable (and I've done it on my Android tablet).

  1. Download the PDFs of תלמוד בבלי from Hebrewbooks.org.
  2. Put them on your Kindle, either by downloading them directly to the Kindle, or by putting them on a micro-SD card.
  3. It's a Kindle, so it should have an e-reader built in, but make sure you have an app that's able to read PDFs.
  4. Done! Enjoy your portable Shas :)

...I took a bit of a shortcut, as the full set of Shas has been circulating yeshiva for a while, so I didn't have to track down the individual volumes and download them, but it shouldn't be too hard to do.


Above is the free version. If you don't mind paying, as you mentioned in your question, you can buy a Nook Naki, which I've seen advertised in seforim stores (though I haven't spotted it online). The idea is a Nook (which is an e-reader, similar to the Kindle) which is incapable of accessing the internet, and contains many many seforim (more than just Shas).
I've never used one, and I don't think I know anyone who has one, but that product's out there.

  • You virtually know someone who has one. Although I rarely use it, I got it as a gift. I only found it useful for airplanes. Otherwise I prefer the real thing. – Y     e     z Feb 17 '15 at 3:12
  • "I know how to do this however I am wondering if someone has already done this and can provide the results" says the question. Your answers seems to start at the your horizontal rule: the rest doesn't answer the question. – msh210 Feb 17 '15 at 8:08

  • @msh210 What does "provide the results" mean? ....should I upload my folder of gemara PDFs to Dropbox for the OP to download? – Shokhet Feb 20 '15 at 5:12
  • I assume that's what was meant, yes. – msh210 Feb 20 '15 at 5:22
