    Need help with ebooks!

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone. I just downloaded mobipocket ebook reader and, for whatever reason, it won't connect to the ebookstore. Is there any way to download ebooks from my blackberry browser? If so, does anybody know of some good sites (preferably free)? And would they automatically show up in mobipocket if I did? Thanks in advance!

    It should pull up the ebookstore without a problem... Are you using any data intensive apps while trying to get in there? Does it give you an error?

    If you save your other ebooks into mobipocket's ebook directory, they'll automatically show up in the program as long as they're in a compatible format...

    Hope that heps...

    same problem

    I can't access the library and none of the suggestions on the (locked, can't reply or contact them) help page has worked.

    Similarly, I have a Mac, so while I can easily access the SD card, I can't use the mobipocket desktop program.

    So unless there's an easy way to convert ebooks into mobipocket format, I'm stuck.

    You can find free books here (Use a PC!).

    http://manybooks.net/

    The site will let you save them in lots of different formats - MobiPocket Reader format, iSolo format, even PDF's or text files.

    For MobiPocket Reader get the .mobi or .prc files. Either one works - the .mobi is what the desktop app works off of and will load to the BB, .prc I usually only see for stuff I've used the desktop app to convert into a MobiPocker Reader book. After downloading to your computer load it into the ebooks folder on the root directory of your sd card, disconnect the BB and startup MobiPocket and you should see the books come up.

    Don't have a solution for the accessing the ebookstore issue, but at least you'll have something to read in the meantime.
