    A free ebook reader called Franklin Reader for Palm OS is available from Franklin. It comes with a sample ebook, The Return of Sherlock Holmes. They also have a few titles (mainly reference and medical) for purchase.

    Good Find Mark! Their titles I think are a tad expensive, but It's free, and free is good
    What format does it use?

    They have a link to PeanutPress so I'm guessing it's compatible with their stuff... though I couldn't find anything at the Franklin site. I also don't have any PP titles to try with the Franklin reader

    I still like the peanut press reader though

    I have several books on my Visor that are in the "Peanut Reader format" - some that I bought from peanutpress, and some I created myself. None of them show up on the Franklin Reader's list of available books. The only one that shows up is The Return of Sherlock Holmes. Seems like it might be a decent reader, but not if their expensive books are the only ones that I can use with it. If I can read other files on it (like DOC files, for example), that would be a different story... I didn't see a option to add books already on the Visor to the booklist, though...

    Has anyone else tried this reader? Been able to read other formats on it?

    I have not been able to get the Franklin Reader to open any books other than the Sherlock Holmes demo. Re-downloaded the Peanut Press titles that I have and installed them again and it just won't see them. It won't see normal doc files either. The file size is another drawback. It is 221K while Peanut Reader is 117K and Doc readers like QExpress are much lower (47K QExpress).

    The documentation and web site are no help either for finding answers to questions.

    OK, I have an answer, and it's "No".

    e-mail from me to them:
    I noticed this sentence on one of the website's pages: "Franklin has entered into an alliance with peanutpress.com..." And there are links to the peanutpress site. Does this mean that I can read my Peanut Reader books on the Franklin Reader? Thanks.

    their response to me:
    No, that is a separate deal and has nothing to do with the Palm OS.
    franklin.com

    Oh well... Peanut Reader for me...
