I came across this site, and it appears to be a good one, With lots of useful items/links.

When I looked at the internet archives list of formats, I noticed that they are now available in the Kindle format.

It is nice to have a large number of old school books and information together in one site that will be of use for the members of this forum.

Well in some further looking, No conclusions on which reader yet. Since when it is brought up the rabid Ipad/and other apple people just get to the point of it looking like they are paid by apple! Even when it is clearly stated that only a reader is needed. They seem they can't help themselves ;) :D :rolleyes: :D
