I read also tomato cans (Italian)

The problem is that I'm from Italy and so i'm a stranger in a strange land.
There's no room for e-book (legal ones) and prices are awesome.
I'm old, 68, but I like to think of myself as a "senior netizen".
Got a bleedin' nose bumping in the walls of pdf > epub etc migration (Be aware that in Italy we have problems like è é ì ) and i have a total repect for the written world and it really hurts when I find words written badly.
I got my e-reader fro Holland four weeks ago and I'm still learning.
When, better IF, I'll have some clear demands in my mind I'll write a real topic.

Welcome to MobileRead, gioanni.

I love your opening sentence.

Are you aware, also, that there are over 15,000 free books available on this site? Click the "ebooks" tab, select your format, then search either by author or genre.

Enjoy the forums.

PS........There are no strangers here, just friends you haven't met.

Welcome to MR! As others have said (or implied), we're all just strange people in a strange land here

As for your subject line - I've said something very similar in interviews when asked what sort of things I read (if the topic of hobbies comes up)!

Gioanni, have a look at this little Italian publishing company that's selling his ebooks "ottimizzati per i lettori da 6 pollici (BeBook One, Cybook, et cetera)": you could like them: http://www.elibri.biz/ or http://www.edizionidellavigna.it
