HandStory has added BookRags.com as an online Featured Partner. The BookRags site has a PDA section with over 1500 titles in HS format (mostly classical literature...looks like a lot of stuff on school reading lists!). There is no search nor descriptions, but fairly easy to scroll down and pick what you want. And because they're in HS format, the download process loads them into the Palm installer after prompting you for the HS category you want to apply.

The BookRags' eBooks display nicely, although not with bookmarks for chapters (would be nice...). Still haven't figured out the advantage of the eBook format over Doc format within HS, but it's on the list to report on. One advantage appears that they load directly, like downloading clips from this forum, saving a few steps for installation. Click the logos to check 'em out...





Cheers,
Gary

I really love the fact that Handstory offers precompiled ebook classics!!

I think this is something iSilo should catch up with (did someone say marketing?)....

I am puzzled that people seem not the know that the memoware.com site has many ebooks in both preformatted iSilo and doc formats, in a variety of languages. There are 6 new iSilo Russian-language novels posted today. It is simply not necessary for iSilo to post any such things on its website. The HS website, incidentally, notes the availability of ebooks on the Memoware site. PDR
