E-pub Buddhist Texts

Hello:

It's been ages since I last visited MobileRead, and I no doubt missed a gazillion good book deals. Every once in a while, I run across some decent freebies and like to touch base with this forum. I've benefited so often from the generosity of others here, and it makes me feel like I'm giving a little back.

I ran across a site called Access to Insight that has some e-pub Buddhist texts. The "About" page says the following:

Access to Insight is an Internet website dedicated to providing accurate, reliable, and useful information concerning the practice and study of Theravada Buddhism, as it has been handed down to us through both the written word of the Pali canon and the living example of the Sangha.

The ebook page is at http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tech/...fest-epub.html. I see about 15 listed, including two translations (in one book) of The Dhammapada and a book on the Noble Eightfold Path by Bhikkhu Bodhi.

Hope this is useful to someone.

You can also find material at: http://www.buddhistelibrary.org/
Though they seem to be .pdf files.
