thank you sooooooooooooooo much

i have never really had the chance to try ebooks. a few days ago i found a pocket pc in a pile of free stuff in front of someone's house. it is a jornada 540. an 8 year old piece that has a pretty impressive screen in spite of it's age. i have a mac and it is windows based. i have spent many hours trying to work around the obsolete software and proprietary file formats. i was actually reading pickwick in word. the only problem was word on pocket pc can only handle small files. i had to break it into chunks and i would often lose my spot. very frustrating. i almost gave up and i was going to buy a palm t3.

but then i found that i could put mobipocket on it. i did and then it was only a matter of taking my pg version of pickwick and making it for mobi. only i couldn't use mobi's program for conversion because i have a mac. just about every dickens book was available in the prc format except pickwick. i was about to give up and hate the world. . . then i found your conversion.
