"Free Software, Free Society" (2nd ed.) and "Free as in Freedom" (2nd ed.)

Hi all,

I converted into EPUB and MOBI the second editions of the two books:

Richard M. Stallman
Free Software, Free Society: Selected Essays of Richard M. Stallman, Second Edition
http://www.dei.unipd.it/~pettarin/fsfs2.html

and

Sam Williams, Richard M. Stallman
Free as in Freedom (2.0): Richard Stallman and the Free Software Revolution
http://www.dei.unipd.it/~pettarin/faif2.html

If you visit the above two URLs, you will find the recipe to produce the e-books from the source files available from the FSF, which authorized me to "spread the news" (they are going to publish the EPUB on their website too).

Note 1: the above e-books still need some polishing. Please comment here or send me an email if you find out issues you think should be fixed.

Note 2: you can download the PDFs of the two books directly from the FSF site, the relevant links are provided in the above pages.

Happy reading!

Already got the PDFs on my iPad, but prefer reading on the kindle at the moment, so thanks for doing the conversion

You are welcome. Of course both the EPUB and the MOBI are DRM-free
