    E-Books on Blackberry

    Advertisement



    From my local library I can download PDF versions of E-Books. Can I just download it to my PC and copy/paste it over to my BB (8320)? Or do I need some special software or reader so it will pick up a PDF file?

    I would also like to find an easier way to read books on my bb. I have been using the Word to Go and just putting everything into a word format.

    Mobipocket reader might be the ticket. Best of all, it's free!

    Joe Robot, if I download this will it help me read PDF versions of e-book?

    Looks like some of the e-books at my library come in Mobipocket version, so this will help. Thanks.

    I agree I use Mobipocket reader along with the free desktop reader which allows you to convert the file. Conversion includes, txt, html, pdf, doc at least

    Just be aware that the mobipocket reader cannot be fully closed out for some reason.

    It sits in memory permanently.

    I don't know if there is a known work around but i never figured it out.

    so only for the Memory endowed BB owners!
