Another version of Microsoft .lit cracker Clit is out . Will Billy never learn to get e-books right?

Quote:
Version 1.5 of Convert LIT is now available! This version rectifies the incompatibility problem caused by the requirement of reactivating Microsoft Reader. You can download it here. Note that if you don't have the latest version of Microsoft Reader, and you're running Windows 98, you should stick with the older version of Convert LIT.

Well, it is back, with the following 3 titles:
- Blindfold by Kevin J. Anderson
- An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser
- Death Watch by Elizabeth Forrest

That was the good news. The bad news is that Dan Jackson is forced to shut down his page.

The UK's implementation of the European Union Copyright Directive means that, starting from October 31st, it will no longer be legal to use or distribute Convert LIT in the UK. In accordance with this Directive, we will unfortunately be closing down this web page. If you believe you can provide a home for Convert LIT which is not affected by this or similar directives/laws, please drop us a line. A news story concerning the new directive can be found here.

Can someone email me the convert lit 1.5 file at ackj00@yahoo.com or is it redundant with the new version of MS Reader? Thanks.

Hi all,

I'm new here, and i'm sorry that i miss quite alot of MS ebook offered free, since i just learn about that here.

Can anybody kindly send me those books? Please? For i also doesn't like all the hassle of installing pasport etc.

Or can somebody tell me how to get these books without pasport?

Would really appreciate all of your help

Thank you in advance!

This week...

A Walk in the Woods
by Bill Bryson

Bill Bryson decided in 1996 to walk the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail. Winding from Georgia to Maine, this uninterrupted "hiker's highway" sweeps through the heart of some of America's most beautiful and treacherous terrain. Bryson risked snakebite and hantavirus to trudge up unforgiving mountains, plod through swollen rivers, and yearn for cream sodas and hot showers. This amusingly ill-conceived adventure brings Bryson to the height of his comic powers, but his acute eye also observes an astonishing landscape of silent forests, sparkling lakes, and other national treasures that are often ignored or endangered. The Lost Continent, Bill Bryson's hilarious first travel book, chronicled a trip in his mother's Chevy around small-town America. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1951, he lived in England for almost two decades. He now lives in Hanover, New Hampshire, with his wife and four children. His other notable bestsellers are I'm A Stranger Here Myself, In a Sunburned Country and, most recently, A Short History of Nearly Everything. A Walk in the Woods is a laugh-out-loud account of an outrageously rugged hike by a beloved comic author.

The Company
by Robert Littell

The Company, the magnum opus of acclaimed espionage novelist Robert Littell is a mesmerizing, dazzlingly plotted epic that tells the life and death struggle of two generations of CIA operatives during a long Cold War. Littell's book spans nearly fifty years of postwar espionage, offering perspectives on excursions as varied as the Rosenberg trial, the Bay of Pigs invasion, the alleged 'assassination' of Pope John Paul I in 1978 and the great winding down of perestroika. “A gold mine for true conspiracy theorists Robert Littell's The Company reads like a breeze and is guaranteed to suck you right back into the Alice-in-Wonderland world of spy vs. spy.” Former Newseek journalist Robert Littell is the bestselling author of thirteen novels, published in twelve languages around the world. The New York Times bestseller, The Company, is his most recent.

Savage Night
by Jim Thompson

First class criminal Carl Bigelow has a difficult job ahead of him. How can he kill one-time hoodlum Jake Winroy without making it look like a hit? The man is about to turn evidence in to the authorities, threatening to bring the law down on the powerful crime syndicate that runs the city. Allowing Jake Winroy to live could be very bad for the career of Carl's boss, not to mention several prominent but corrupt Long Island politicians. Luckily for Carl, Winroy's beautiful wife is bored with his drunken behavior and anxious to become a widow. It seems that she could easily be implicated in the plot by her eagerness to take up with Carl, the handsome young hoodlum. Jim Thompson was born in 1906 in Anadarko, Oklahoma. He sold his first story to the True Detective at the age of fourteen and went on to write twenty-nine novels, dozens of short stories and two screenplays.

As always, the main page is here.
