By default MS Reader puts the book files in a folder called "My Library" in your My Documents folder.

If you look at the URLs of of MS's free books, you can notice the following pattern:

http://12.149.108.82/Authenticate.Asp?Id=179&Book=XXX.

Well, for the listed titles, XXX is simple
HISTORY for A Short History of Everything
CANDY for Candy and Me
LAST for Last to Die..

Well, some of the next 3 are easy to guess:
SINISTER for "The Sinister Pig"
LUCK for "The Joy Luck Club"
SHORTY for "Get Shorty"

Do you remember which business one was posted and do you have it? I'm getting in to this a bit late and am mainly interested in the non-fiction stuff such as the one posted yesterday.

Thanks

What is on MS's list of free ebooks this week?

- The Business Travel Bible
by Jonathan Aspatore
This comprehensive resource for business travelers includes facts, figures, and data designed to provide help and information while on the road. Included are phone numbers--both listed and unlisted--for all airlines, hotels, car rentals, and other frequently used business services. Business travel emergencies such as computer crashes, finding medical help in case of illness, and lost plane tickets are addressed. Also supplied are business words and phrases spelled out phonetically in the 14 most common foreign languages and information on local roadside assistance, Internet service provider numbers, and taxi and transportation information. In addition, maps of the 23 largest United States cities for business are laid out in detail.

- The Last Chance Café by Linda Lael Miller

- Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman

As usual, you can find it here:

Why don't you do it? You can set up a Microsoft account to download the book free, and then use ConvertLit to convert the book to HTML (for use with iSilo).

Well . . . I could . . . just lazy, I guess. Maybe time-challenged would be a 'kinder' way of saying what I am. =)

With 3 kids into just about every sport/club/activity available in this town, I don't get a lot of computer time. (I won't even mention the significant other that wants computer time . . . lol) I've added it to my 'to read' list. The last time I read that was in high school!
