Ebook Library

Recommended Posts

I enjoy reading and have a small eBook collection going on if people are interested!? Got fed up with trying to find decent 'real' books over here, so decided to invest....

I've got a BeBook Neo which uses Adobe Digital Editions, so all of my eBooks are in 'epub' format (i.e. not compatible with a Kindle). Anyway, PM me if you want a list of what I have available?

Cheers,

Mike

Download Calibre and you can change any format to any other format. I have about 5,000 books for my kindle now

I came across the full set of Louis L'amour eBooks this week.

Westerns have lost a lot of their appeal these days but were very popular a few years back with L'amour one of the best writers.

His novels have marvellous descriptions of America in times gone by and many have been made into movies, including the Sackett mini-series.

They are in Mobi and ePub format so will suit most eBook readers.

We have a few cowboys on the forum so I though I would offer them. cool.png

Still got plenty of late release novels for ebook readers out there.

And also, if someone should just happen to know anyone who likes comics and graphic novels I may just happen to know some one who collects them in e-format.... whistling.gifcool.png

Just finished reading Don Winslow's "The Power of the Dog", a novel of the DEA's war on drugs in Central and South America.

A large book but one of the best I've read for a long time.

I have it in epub/mobi if anyone with a reader is interested and it's easily emailed.

I have all of his books, but in paper back. There are just over 100 of them. I like reading real books and about every 10 years I get them out and start reading them again. I also like Zane Grey.

I have a Kindle Fire HD and it's a full computer in addition to having a color screen, black and white Kindle screen, and a sepia screen. I think it's awesome and Amazon has a $40 rebate on them right now I see which would make them about $100 US. I love it. Link

I have about 1,900 books including such things as the complete works of John Steinbeck, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Dickens and many, many others. They are almost 3 gig, and I do have a list of them in Notepad format.

The Fire is a nice piece of kit.

I've upraded to the iPad from my old reader and am 100% satisfied with it.

There are a lot of ebooks around now that you just can't find in hardcopy anymore.

I currently have about 25GB on my hard drive, some are copies in diferent frormats though.

Give me a PM if there is something you've been looking for, you never know your luck.

I have a couple of Kindles. The original and the paper white, which I love for reading in bed since it has its own light source. I am just starting to stock up on books for them.

No need to trade Randell, I have a stack here you can have for nothing.

I doubt that there's much around that I don't have in ebook format now.

Give me a PM.

I'm working on sending larger ebooks by email, when I say large, think graphic novels and large illustrated .pdf files.

The problem is that while there are plenty of pay options I don't do it often enough to warrant the cost and the free ones can be difficult

I used onedrive for a while but it's just stopped loading.

Working on MEGA at the moment.

Files are usually between 20 and 200mb.

I have a Kobo Glo reader - actually, two. It reads epub and pdf documents flawlessly. I used to have a Sony eReader (it kacked) and a Kindle - it took a walk-about one night.

One caution on Kindle readers - MOST models will not read epub-format ebooks, seriously restricting your range of books.

Collecting books is simple - on all (most?) of the readers, you setup an account and buy books right from your device. Alternatively, you can buy books from Amazon or thousands of other vendors - or just download them - scads of sources available.

Ask by PM if you want more information on any aspect of readers.

Epub is easily and accurately converted to Kindle/mobi with a free program called Calibre.

I use an iPad which reads virtually any format with the correct app.

The iBooks store, part of the iTunes set up also has many thousands of books, including quite a few free ones.

I like the iPad because of it's many other features, the battery life may not be as good as the Kindle but it still gets me through the day.

I read books on my iPad very effectively. A kindle is tied to Amazon is it not?

I have many downloads on my PC which I'm only to willing to share.

A Kindle was tied to the Mobi format, most of the others use epub which is very quickly and accurately converted to Mobi, and vice versa, using a free program known as Calibre.

Sony readers use something called .lrf format with the books from the Sony store.
