Hello from France...

Hello,

One more Frenchman on this forum...

I have been reading eBooks on PDAs for quite a long time now and I have found out Calibre/Stanza only recently...

I own quite a bunch of eBooks and plan on using them on an iPad in the future. A bunch of those eBooks are in the DRM-protected eReader and I am still looking in a way to unlock those using a GUI interface but so far no luck...

Once they are unlocked, then Calibre/Stanza will probably be my main and ONLY reader... Especially if the Apple iBook store doesn't come to France...

See you...

Welcome on Board, Gurvan! iPad is good (may be) for comics and magazines, but for ebooks I suggest you should take a look on readers with e-Inc display

Bear in mind, Gurvan, that there are not yet any firm plans for European iPad owners to access the Apple iBook store. Good luck. Nice to have your company. Neil (also in France)

Hello and thanks for your welcome...

Désolé mais je suis loin de Paris dans une province vraiment perdue... Il y a peu de chance que je sois sur Paris le 20/02...

iPad will be my new reader but I have been reading on Palm and iPhone and I do prefer something that can allow me to do something else with beside reading eBooks.

Anyway, thank you everyone for your welcom...

You should be happy with iPad then, Gurvan. I think it can also deal happily with fully formatted PDFs, which should be something of a bonus to you. Salut. Neil

Fan de la première heure (enfin presque, 25 ans quand même ! ).
J'essaie d'acheter ses ouvrages (SF) quand ils sortent, et j'ai même demandé à Rivière Blanche s'ils envisageaient de sortir des ebooks, mais ça n'est hélas pas encore d'actualité !

Je dois dire que j'en ai lu assez peu, mais la série sur le Sergent-Pilote Gurvan avec son côté "Grand Cirque" m'a largement inspirée pour mon pseudo...
