Creating DRM-free Sony Librie books
So you have a Sony Librie and don't want to just read DRM'd books in the Sony format? The iLiad isn't the only e-ink reader that you can create your own Gutenberg books on.
Makezine has a nice tutorial on creating e-books for the Sony Librie. As we all know, when there is a will there is a way, and the article shows how to do the conversions using an application with a GUI interface, and a mod to use it in English. So if you have managed to get your hands on a Librie for the e-ink screen and convenience of a portable reading device, you have a huge library available to you at the tip of your fingers.
The rest of us are still longing for the new e-ink readers that will be joining the iLiad and Librie on the market.

Hmm. Sony made the Librié which used a proprietary file format ... Sony's bringing out their new Reader which uses a (Sony) proprietary format along with a number of other formats ... that gets me wondering how related the Librié format might be to BBeB, and if the new Reader might handle those old files.
Wouldn't that be something? Think of all the homebrew utilities out there that might get a new lease on life if it were so! Not to mention all the texts that Bob just ... um ... mentioned.
Oh, that it might be ....
