Default Speaking of ebooks...

There was an interesting letter to the editor in current issue (March 2012) of Maximum PC about ebook conversion software by Calibre Ebook--it appears to be free--in response to a reader's question about which ebook format is used for Maximum PC's digital edition. The wikipedia article states "It also supports e-book syncing with a variety of popular e-book readers and will, within DRM restrictions, convert e-books between differing formats."

The letter writer says it's fast--"...changed over 7,000 books from one format (Kindle) to another (Nook) overnight and changed over 900 books from one (Nook) to another (Kindle) in less than three hours."

He said that more than 5 members of his family have ebook readers--apparently different readers--and that they are constantly trading/giving ebooks to each other. He notes that if one has legally paid for a book, this conversion is not illegal--although my guess is that Apple ibook conversion if the Calibre software were capable would be frowned upon by Apple...'-}}
