    I wasn't sure the best place to post this so in the general forum it goes.

    You can download 1000's of free books for your Treo right here:

    I just downloaded "The art of war".

    Is the software to open and read these books free or do I have to buy?

    I use the ebook reader that came with my Treo. There are several free ereaders available and I believe that most of the commercial ones have a free version available.

    Are you saying the the "ereader" can be used with the site mentioned above even though they offer their own? I'm not interested in adding more apps to my Treo if I can use only one like "ereader" from Palm or ebooks.com which are the same.

    Tks in advance

    Follow this link to a ton of them. Any of them should work with the standard palm doc format. You should also have a reader that came with your palm called Ereader.

    Yes, ereader will handle any book you download in the standard "palm doc" format. There are some other formats available that require different readers. Most ebook web sites will have a link that describes the different formats and the software needed to view them. I believe that all formats have a freely availalbe reader for viewing them. It is also possible to use docs to go to view doc files. The difference is that an ereader is optimized for display to make reading a long book easier on your palm.

    Also here:
    http://www.free-ebooks.net/

    Never wouldda guessed that name

    (Every time they move a thread it drops off the face of the earth because the people who were reading it don't know where it is anymore and it doesn't show up as being new in the new location, so few people read it or reply any more to it, so it just dissapears into the past. So I made a point to find another free ebook site so I could make a new post so this thread has at leats 50% chance of running it's normal course.)

    And it didn't work. The thread got a new post, but doesn't show up that way in the list.

    So, moving a thread = killing a thread. Thanks a lot moderators.
