More on eBooks

I really enjoyed Lynn Zelvin's article on accessing commercial eBooks. I have some additional information. Another major source of accessible eBooks is Audible, at www.audible.com.

Palm documents that are not secure can be converted to text via a free program called Mini-reader, available at <www.panix.com/~kestrell/minireader.exe>. Many books sold at Fictionwise are in this format.

Bookshare.org offers all its books in DAISY format as well as BRF.

Finally, there is more information about accessing eBooks in my book, Finding eBooks on the Internet, available online at <www.nbp.org/ic/nbp/EBOOK.html>, and on the Blind Bookworm page at <www.panix.com/~kestrell/ebooks.html>.
