Thanks.
Give that the book is in PDF or Tex, you won't find it here. If you can come up with an HTML version, then someone might have a go at it Or you could use one of the various PDF conversion tools to strip off the excess margin and see how it looks on the Sony as is.

(Doggerrel?) Poetry Request

Anyone feel like doing some poetry? I'd love to have Kipling and/or Robert Service on the reader.

If nobody else takes me up on that, I might have a look at doing some of these when I get some extra time a couple months from now...

Cheers,

ScS

I would personally love to see the rest of F. Scott Fitzgerald's writings. I'm pretty busy this week, but I may try to do a few this sunday.

Yes, I enjoy his short stories, too.

WW1 Classics

Hi all,

As my hobby is reading WW1 classics, memoirs and such like.
And one of the reasons that I bought a PRS500 was the content on Gutenberg.
But I am struggling on converting the files as some have photo images.
Has anyone out there converted any?
I would love Bullets and Billets by Bruce Bairnsfather, but any first world war book would be great.
Hope someone can help.

Ian.

I'm working on it for you right now.

Although I'm having trouble with inexplicable chapter breaks on the TOC.

I can see why you like this book: for one thing, the illustrations are wonderful.

So, I suppose I'm about 1/3 into working on it. The only real trouble I see is trying to figure out why these screen breaks are occuring in the various chapters. The links all seem to work, so that's good.

But Right now, it's time for my obligatory cup of coffee at Border's and a chance to continue reading Robin Hobb's wonderful "Ship of Magic" novel on....what else?.....THE READER!!!

New member here. Applied for sony card last week, and in process of getting a Sony reader. The aim is to use my love for gadgets to develop a healthy reading habbit.

The first set of reading I plan to do is short stories by Saki. ( I have planning to do the same for more than a decade .

Just curios if anyone has any of these books by Saki in the works:
1) Beasts and Super-Beasts
2) The Chronicles of Clovis

Both are available on Gutenberg, but would be great if there is a more readable format.

Looking forward to be more involved with mobileread.

I'll start on "The Warden," and "Barchester Towers" this afternoon

....I'm a fan of Victorian literature and admire Anthony Trollope very much.

These two shouldn't take more than 2 hours total.

Don


P.S.: These two titles are the first two in the series.

OK, I've got a pre-alpha of Leaves of Grass ready to roll. There's at least one problem with formatting that I've got to solve; and it's hard to make the title structure come alive (beyond the book level.) I might make an index of each title.... At any rate, it'll be a few days before it's ready for release except as the crudest alpha version.

Sounds great to me!

What problems are you having with the "title structure"? Can you be more specific, as someone here may be able to offer some assistance.

On the Toc [Table of Contents] that you allude to, let me offer some help, if you're not aware of it. If you already know this, I apologize in advance. Ok, the Toc:

Anything designated as "Title" has the ability to be turned into a ToC and a ToC can be quickly and automatically generated. So, if you've got a book with a 100 poems, and each poem is titled, then you can have a ToC done practically instantly.

It will even produce, as part of the ToC, a "Table of Content." [Notice that there's a bug in the program, and that you need to add an "s" to the word "Content."]

I hope this helps.

Let us know if you have some questions.
