I recently learned of a company called iPreppress (www.ipreppress.com) which specializes in formatting ebooks and study guides for iPod. Does anyone have any experiences, good or bad, that they can share? I'm especially curious about it's application to study guides with HTML links in the text.

Sounds kind of interesting especially if they supplement the text with audio to help you learn.

There is something less expensive. You can have your books iPod formated here (http://www.ambience.sk/ipod-ebook-creator/ipod-book-notes-text-conversion.php) Just upload your book and they'll post it back in a little while afterwards. All they want in exchange is a little gift, all the info's on the site.

This looks interesting, thanks. Do you have any experience with them?

Tried it once just to see and it works as promised. Unfortunately my eyes do not perform as well reading on a Nano. :grin:

If you want to read the full experience, go to this thread (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10329).
There always are three books loaded on my pod in case I'm stuck somewhere, and that Nano is always with me when I leave the house. I hope your pod has a bigger screen!

Well, I have a 4th gen 20 gig-- which is totally dead and needs service (anyone notice how ipods tend to do this within 18 mos of purchase?) and a 4gig mini, so i'd have to clear some music to use it as a reader. The screen in a bit bigger, but not much. Honestly, I see something like this being more suited to a 5th gen ipod with the bigger color screen. And for obvious reasons, this cannot even be attempted with a shuffle. :) How is the battery life on your ipod when you use it as a reader?

Obviously having the screen on full blast takes its toll but my eyes won't last as long without crying:grin: It's an 8gb Nano, it won't do video, I didn't want the fragility of a hard drive since I drop everything. It's doing great so far.
