Thanks
Welcome tish.

You want the mobipocket format. (.prc)

Click on the ebooks tab.

Click on "mobipocket" under "formats"

Now, you can choose genre, all the books are listed alphabetically by author.

See the "search" button to the right? click on that and you can search for a particular book.

Let us know if this helps.

Baen Books offers all their ebooks free for the handicapped

http://www.webscription.net/news.aspx?showarticle=2

Dozens (if not hundreds) of Authors, hundreds (if not thousands) of books have been available for several years now.



Quote:
Baen Books (www.baen.com), a publisher of science fiction, will provide its books to fans who are blind, paralysed, or dyslexic, or are amputees, in electronic form free of charge, effective immediately.

Baen Books is making this offer in recognition of Veterans Day, and all our disabled military veterans. Many Baen authors are veterans themselves, using a military setting as the setting of their tales. Right now convalescing vets might welcome an exciting, fast-action tale to pass the time.

Jim Baen, founder of Baen Books, who passed on June 28, 2006, decided to "provide each challenged reader with a permanent pass" to the regular e-publication of Baen’s new books. His successor, publisher Toni Weisskopf, is implementing his idea with this program.

Since 1999, Baen has published its new books as ebooks each month, in several formats, with no Digital Rights Management, through WebScriptions (www.webscriptions.net), for a small fee. Now, this service will be available at no cost to the disabled, who must apply for this privilege.

Applications will be processed by ReadAssist (www.readassist.org), a volunteer group devoted to helping disabled readers find the books they want in the form they need, and join the community of fandom. The application form has been set up by ReadAssist, and can be found through either WebScriptions or ReadAssist.

If you'd like to volunteer to help ReadAssist, please contact them at their website: query@readassist.org.

Far from New to E-books (using for almost 10 years on my PocketPCs) but still always nice to fine a nice, simple, "start here" thread.

Calling all non-US e-readers! Have imported myself an e-reader all the way over to New Zealand, but am having trouble with some of the bigger sites who allow non-US buyers(booksonboard, e-diesel etc) nevertheless showing some of my wish list as being unavailable for sale for users in my country (mainstream paperbacks such as J D Robb). :-( Does anyone have any tips on other sites (US or international) that may have a better selection of epubs/pdfs for non-US users, or know of any proposed changes to sale policies in this area? Very frustrating!

Hi Grandma, I just joined and want to thank you for this thread. If you're still checking it, can you tell me where I would go to get info for resizing the picture under my name?
