greetings from just under the hollywood sign

i'm patti, and thanks to the folks here for explaining all sorts of ebook stuff. my cybook has been ordered... too bad it's a birthday present, so i won't get to use it till the 23rd

for now i've installed mobipocket reader and creator and am happily downloading and converting the entire baen free library - and lots manybooks and gutenberg and so on.

nice community you have here - but then what could be better than a group of readers who are techies, as well

Hi basschick and welcome to the Forum. Try spending a lot of time on this Forum. That'll help you pass the time till your Cybook arrives. And, when it does, be sure and let us know how you like it.

Welcome to MR & Cybook (good choice). When you finish the free books you might check out ebook libraries. They usually have mobipocket formated ebooks that you can checkout. Some are free or have a nominal annual fee. All are restricted to some number of books (my experience is between 2 & 6).

Good reading to you.

Errr ... why convert any of the Baen free books? They're already available in MobiPocket format. So are all the books at ManyBooks.

But, I have a long list of Project Gutenberg books that I'd like to have in MobiPocket format if you want some to convert.
