Cool. I'd like to buy a kindle soon and check these out. Hopefully I'll be fortunate to win one.

If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch and download the Kindle app, you can send these to your iPod. In fact, they'd make a great way to try the reader out with no risk.

You can also download the first chapters of most of the Kindle books on Amazon for free. Have already done that on my iPhone and it works fine.

No, we has not. You can't put anything on it that doesn't come from Amazon unless you've jailbroken your phone. And even if you have, you still have to use the kindlepid script to extract the device ID and the kindlefix script to fix any DRM-locked books just as with the hardware Kindle.

This is far from the Mobipocket for iPhone client people have been demanding.

There is also a sony version.
Too bad it is a BBeB Secure file (LRX) instead of a LRF-file, so you can't convert it with Calibre to mobi (Yes, I tried )

A bit stupid for a free book if you ask me

Random House (or Amazon) pulled a quick switch on this last free book. Rather than Settling Accounts Return Engagement: Book One of the Settling Accounts Trilogy, they have Settling Accounts In at the Death as a free download. Of course, this might be an error, so grab this one while you can.

In the meantime, you can download PDF versions of Settling Accounts: Return Engagements and the other four book from the Suvudu website (but you can't read that on the iKindle).

Well, I can manage to free my purchased .prc from drm. Since I have a jailbroken iPhone, I will try to ssh or iphonebrowser my .prc to the archived items folder, locally inside the iPhone. I'll test this theory on the coming weekend.

Update:
I managed to ssh my jailbroken iPhone - after installing SSH to the iPhone via Cydia. With an iMac, I opened Terminal, and ssh root@ipaddress. Then I go to the Kindle\Document\Ebooks and copy 3 free .prc from the other thread here.
When I open Kindle app in my iPhone, there are 3 covers for 3 prcs, and I can read them well.
Not yet the ultimate mobireader for iPhone, but iPhone owners can surely make use of Kindle for iPhone to store their unDRMed prc.

It IS Return Engagement, they just put in the wrong cover image

Blood Engines

I just wanted to a plug in for the T.A. Pratt book Blood Engines. I've got two of the author's other books from Amazon and really enjoyed them. Pretty sure I've read Blood Engines from the library so am really happy to get my own copy for an excellent price!

No, I downloaded it, it appears to be In At the Death unless they changed all the copyright and about the author and also by, etc. pages as well.
