Does anyone have a Kindle or similar type of item? Apart from Amazon, are there any sites to get books from either for free or at a reduced price? I've clicked on a few but they seem to be just lists of other sites and my notifications for unsafe sites is having a meltdown raftl

I've had a look on Waterstones & WHSmith, but they seem to be more expensive than Amazon and have a smaller selection frown

Very difficult to find the 1-million or so free books Amazon claim they have.

As such try http://openlibrary.org/ - who have over 1,000,000 public domain works.

If you are happy to pirate ebooks then Calibre and your favourite download platform will probably have bundles of ebooks...

I've got Calibre but no idea how to use it yet raftl I see a lot on some sites are pdf files - tried using them but it's too hard to read them so I've binned them off. Something was said by a friend about Mobi but as I've only had it 2 days and said I'd never have one in the house, let alone own one, I am none the wiser.

It's annoying that some of my favourite authors don't have any ebooks frown

I don't like it frown My best friend was telling me to have an ipad but I don't like them either. I opted for the normal keypad one without 3G (no idea what it is anyway so it's no loss raftl ) As long as I can read books on it and buy books on it, that's all I need to know.

Although I did discover I can tweet from it grin

I can't seem to get on sites like that frown A friend suggested one called nwz something or other and I couldn't get on that either, kept coming up something about server. Having to convert them to mobi or whatever it is is too much like hard work when you're not that savvy frown

I'll just buy one a month or so I think, although there's one I will have to save up for but I really want it so it's worth it smile Serves me right for being such an IT spac raftl

Oh bugger - I've just found all the works of Shakespeare (including Sonnets), Dickens etc and all my favourite poets (Keats, Yeats etc).

I'm happy as a pig in muck raftl
