I was just playing around. I'm not so motivated as to do all of what you're
I've had a Kindle now for a couple years, and I've been fascinated with
trying different ways of creating/converting documents for its use. The
basic Kindle (as opposed to the Fire), is just a text reader. While it will
display graphics, it's not very elegant. I've found that books with anything
more than a stream of text create issues for the Kindle.
I have to wonder if the LO user guides are simply too complex for elegant
translation to e-reader format.

I just did a couple experiments with LO and Writer2epub. I tried
the entire 390 page Getting Started book to EPUB. It choked. I then tried
doing the same with just the 18 page introduction. Same result. No EPUB
output file was generated.
I noticed that Writer2epub doesn't like custom styles. It is apparently
designed for fairly simple documents, using LO's built-in styles. It can't
handle the elaborate formatting of the LO User Guides.
That was an ambitious test! Perhaps LaTeX might be better: convert to
(x)html using tex4ht and then compile the epub. Personally, would edit
the xml using a text editor and compile the epub via the command
terminal; compilation is surprisingly easy.
