Hello everybody!

I was using a PocketPC as eReader until a year ago, when the device physically crashed (big star in the screen).
In October 2009 I bought a BeBook as it was reduced in price at that time to 249 Euro and I was going on a trip, on which I wanted to take a lot of literature with me.
Working with project Gutenberg and the like I have now filled about 1.5 GB with classic etexts - just in case.
My latest etext is The Astronomy of Milton's 'Paradise Lost' by Thomas Nathaniel Orchard (1896). I converted it from HTML to PDF with OpenOffice Writer. I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

Welcome. The BeBook is a nice device glad you're enjoying it.

If you need more stuff you can check the ebooks section here (blue bar at the top of the page "ebooks") for all kinds of great stuff from Gutenberg and other places that folks have spent time nicely formatting.
