Book request

This forum has really changed since I last looked at it when I got my first reader the prs505 back when it came out and someone here told me that you have uploaded free books, Im thinking = coolness.
There are two books I want to load onto my wife's prs505 before I surprise her with it, both are not found on here or the connect software.

Watership Down (which I found in .lit and finally figured out how to convert thanks to the wonderful forum here)

The other is Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clark

Is there a place I can request this, or does anyone know of some place I can download it (free preferably), I dont mind if I need to convert it either, its her fav book of all time and I just cant find it.

Thanks

These two books are both most definitely under copyright and you will not find legal copies of them "free". Have you tried looking for them in the Sony eBook store?

Neither are available on the eBook store. I've been wanting to read Watership Down and I don't think it's available anywhere as an ebook.

Watership Down and Childhood's End are both not available as legal eBooks.

Oh, it's available as an ebook. Look for it, you'll find it. No comment on anything else.

I'm not downloading it illegally, if that's what you're saying.

No worries, long as you know it's out there.
