Device: iLiad Book Edition
I'm a proud owner of an iLiad Book edition. After using it for 3 months almost as "out of the box" I would like to get more out of it (hope I find the time to dig).
Initially I thought there would be a bit more of official support, but anyway I really like the idea of "people sharing knowledge", "open source", etc. This way of thinking is possibly the only way to save our mad gone world. - Try reading some good stuff from Doctorow (http://www.feedbooks.com) -
Unfortunately I'm a lousy programmer, so for this part I'll be probably more "taking" than "giving".
By the way ... this is the first time I join a forum.
Hope we all together will make things better (starting with my iLiad )

Welcome to MobileRead. It's a great place for person-to-person help. There are some fair-dinkum programmers around here, too, so you will certainly find clever utilities to help you create or convert books to a format supported by your Illiad.
Oh yeah -- check out all the books that have been uploaded here. Even if you're not a programmer, you might be able to give back by converting a couple of books from text/html to one of the eBook formats. There's a lot of books at Project Gutenberg that have not yet been converted.
