    If you are into ebooks - or think you might be - then take a look at this site:

    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    calibre is free - they do ask for a donation but that's up to you - and installs nicely on your PC / tablet / etc.  It does lots of stuff like turn word docs into popular ebook formats (inc kindle and nook) but more importantly for the reader it has a single library that you can load all types of ebook in and an inbuilt reader that lets you read the books on your PC etc - with page turning, notes, bookmarks etc.  If that's all you did with it then that's fine - just ignore all the conversion stuff.

    I'm interested to let me send folks a trial version of an ebook and know they can read it in a nicer format / mode than a pdf or worse still a word document.

    Seems to load easily and doesn't - as far s I can tell - add all sorts of stuff you didn't ask for!

    Take a look!

    Pat

    Thaks Pat, I'll have a look at that, though I'm very happy with Kindle.
