Paperless Paperback?


Recommended Posts

I looked on amazon.com for something yesterday, and came across info on Amazon's Kindle product. Quite intriguing. 10 ounces, the size of a paperback, and wireless connectivity to download books, magazines, and newspapers from Amazon for very decent prices. One of the things we miss the most when camping is the morning paper! Paul checked the coverage map, and right now Kindle's wireless service wouldn't work on our property in NC, but perhaps someday? Have any of you tried this service, or Sony's equivalent? I'm curious.

The Kindle is a great product. I found this link to info on the Sony:


On the Sony info page there is links to free books online. I have been downloading a few from there to my phone/pocket computer, but it is not as comfortable of reading as the kindle or sony, I expect. The print on my PPC is pretty small. The sony has to download books through your computer. I like the way the PPC downloads straight from the web to the PPC.

This link has over 3,000 audio books to download for free:


Here is the link to Gutenberg's free books:


Even at dialup speeds the text version downloads quickly. :shock:
