Hello from Dublin, Ireland

Hello,
started reading ebooks on Gutenberg & Archive.org back in 2001, which I read on a pc. In 2005 I bought a Cowon A2 (a mp3/pmp player similar to Archos) and discovered it made a grand ebook reader.

Fell away from the whole ebook thing until recently when I discovered www.manybooks.net and have begun greedly devouring ebooks I have recently bought an old PDA... a Dell Axim x50 on which I installed PocketXpdf v0.5, which I obviosuly read in landscape mode to make the most of it.

I find the whole ebook format thing very confusing so sticking with *.pdf until I figure it out

The two other sites I get my books from are:

1). www.smashwords.com
2). www.feedbooks.com

Currently reading Metropolis by Thea Von Harbou.

Welcome to MobileRead, jaqian

Don't forget....there are thousands of e-books here also.....way better formatted than a lot of those from PG....done by our own members.......no excess waste to wade thru.

Enjoy the forums...

Hi Jaquian, nice meeting you and welcome to MobileRead. I started off reading from my computer screen as well, but I am much happier reading e-books off my e-ink screen. Not that I'm trying to get you to drink the kool-aid, mind you

Welcome to MR, jaqian!

Since you already know about feedbooks, check out the link in my signature for a list of some of our MR authors' work on feedbooks.

Have fun on the forums.
