Apart from the ones which come up when you search the kindle store for kayak (or canoe)? The Canoe Boys seems to be a good option...

We placed RIDING THE TEARS OF EVEREST as a kindle download just before Xmas. We would also consider WW Nepal as a Kindle download if demand required.

Project Gutenberg has some out of copyright books. Some in a format for a kindle but I don't know wether they work?

I'm almost tempted to but one just for these old books. Has anyone tried them?

I don't know about a proper Kindle, but the Gutenberg Kindle format ebooks work perfectly on my Kindle for PC, and on the Kindle App on my Android smartphone and tablet. You just have to download the file, and then manually copy the file into the kindle folder on your PC or smartphone. Then when you switch it on next it will find it and work OK.

Are there any out of copyright boating books you are thinking of?

The Three Rivers of The Amazon by Tim Biggs ( S.Africa) is a cracking good read.

Download this bit of software...

This is like iTunes for ebooks. The good thing about it is that you can download an ebook from anywhere and convert it to the right format for your kindle. Just means you're not restricted to just the amazon store.

Hope this helps.
