But there are Google Books unavailable on either PG or ManyBooks. I have not yet found a method, though would be glad to hear of one.

It seems like Google offers books in PDF format. Then, PDFLRF will be the best program to try.

I tried this program with one of the Google books and it seems to work pretty well with proper trim and thicken option.

Thank you very much for posting this link to remind us of this terrific application!

It will make those wonderful Googlebooks available to us in actually useable format. And since there are many such books which are not available at Project Gutenberg, it will expand the potential free books for the Reader that much more, which is a terrific thing!

Now if we can just convince more current publishers to release their books in Reader format at reasonable prices we'll be all set!

Glad to be of help.

Actually, PDFLRF is THE program that made me choose PRS 505 over the other alternatives. My main purpose is to read journal articles of letter-sized PDF without paying hefty amount of money on Iliad. I tested this program before purchasing PRS 505 and the output from this program was more than enough to convince me that PRS 505 will work with most journal articles.

Thanks for cacapee for creating such a great program!
