I just found this little app to view e-books on my SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 player, and I assume it would work on other players that have photo viewing capabilities. (it converts to .bmp files)

Download now
Anything but an iPod Forum

Now I can read e-books while I 'spozed to be workin'. Cool

(Now maybe I can finally get through the Sim)

For those of us still in the PC age, what's the experience like? eye-fatiguing? Screen too small? can you find un-edited works? what's out there to read? the uninitiated want to know!

I was surprised at how easy it was to read, even with only a 1.8 inch (220 x 176 pixels) screen. but you only get about a paragraph at a time and paragraph breaks are lost....
There are "places" where you can get free unedited/unabridged e-books, even those (like LotR) that aren't officially on the market. Most are home made using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software and some are of very poor quality, and some are quite good.....
I made up a set of LotR e-books using Abby Fine Reader OCR software, and I've finished The Fellowship of the Ring with illustrations by John Howe in a PDF format, and a full set in Html... (if I had known how much work it was going to be I never would have started....)
I'm also working on some of the other stories that you can't find in e-book format, like Farmer Giles Of Ham.
I guess I can't legally give a link to these "places" without getting Rob and Do in trouble, but I am looking for someone to proof read my LotR e-books... (wink wink, nudge nudge)

This is a great news. This kind of applications can be very useful. There are a lot of people who are searching for this on the internet, and in the ninja essay review from different people. I am also using an mp3 device, and would like to give it a try and will use it.
