    I use mobi-pocket they have a good selection, but as usual thje free stuff is religion based. I get a good deal cause I get books at US prices rather than UK prices (double)

    Good selection but still i get the thought these places are religion sponsored, which does not go with me.

    Re: ebooks?

    Mobupocket has a multitude of free books. However, the free book site can only be reached via the pc, not OTA.
    Http://www.mobipocket.com/free

    Any free ebooks you are going to find are books that have passed into public domain. Any books published within the last 50 years or so are not in public domain yet. So if you want free ebooks that are in the least bit recent, as in bestsellers, you'll have to get them from someone who has actually bought them. You won't find them anywhere online for free, at least not from sites that respect copyright and all that other business. Project Gutenberg is a great site to get free books from.
    http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page

    Another site is
    http://www.tx2ph.com/
    These books you can read from your wap browser, and don't require a special reader program.


    Here is a very scary book, Autumn, available free for reading on your device. This is actually the link for page 2, but you can click home from that page.
    http://www.djmoody.co.uk/A2.htm

    And for free audiobooks, try
    Http://www.getaudiobooksforfree.com
    These will have to be dl'd to your pc, and then loaded to your Pearl/8800
    via DM>media manager. Then you can play them thru your media player. They are all in mp3 format.
