Device: Kobo Aura HD, Aura, Glo, Touch, Mini; Kindle 3, Nook 1st ed.
Wifi: Is there a way to copy the 100 free books from the device?

The Kobo WiFi (and, I believe, the original Kobo) come with a hundred public domain books stored in ROM; they can't be deleted from the device, but I'm wondering if there's a way to copy them FROM the device so that I can load them (selectively) on my Kobo Glo? I know I can get all these books free from other sources (including Gutenberg, which was the source Kobo used), but it would be convenient to have that big a library of classics in Kepub format available to my other Kobo readers. Suggestions? They don't show up if you plug the Kobo into a USB port. Thanks!

I do seem to recall a zip that was available with the books in it. On the original Kobo when it was released, kePub files were stored within the database itself, and it wasn't until an upgrade that kEpubs were stored as separate files.

Some people felt that the quality of the free books was lower than those that had been made available here in the Patricia Clark Memorial Library.

I will look around my hard drive and see if I can find that old archive.
