Star Trek books...

Hmm... I had originally thought that I couldn't get Start Trek books as eBooks since they didn't have the Sony format. But, being more savy now I think I will be able to convert the MS Reader format to the Sony format.

Is this true? Has anyone done this. I guess I could buy one, for $4 it's worth a try. I think I'd have to use covertLit then lit2lrf.

There are a number of us who do so regularly. I'm not one of them (most of my stuff comes from Baen, as it happens, and they just added LRF support ) but I have friends who are.

I have successfully converted two titles Sony didn't have. It's not too hard once you get the hang of it!

Baen has added LRF support? WOW! And the formatting is pretty good too.

Before getting my 500 and then 505, I did have some Star Trek eBook in MS Reader format. I have use ConvertLIT to remove the DRM and either book Designer or lit2lrf to convert and they've converted just fine in either case.

Yea, I don't want any DRM lock in. I haven't bought from that store yet. Although I may start... I'm running out of DRM free sources to get stuff. And I do like reading some of the mainstream and best sellers that you just can't get DRM free.

Most of the Star Trek I've purchased has been from Simon & Schuster's website. And some from Fictionwise. I've purchased from Fictionwise because of the 100% Micropay rebate on some Trek titles and also using the rebate to purchase other Trek titles. But normally, S&S are cheapest. So I purchase in MS Reader and convert. Works well for me.
