    Recently d/l Aldiko and am now looking for a source of books in .epub format but there don't seem to be many...I'd be happy with classics/poetry.

    Most of the truly free stuff is at gutenberg.org, but there are a lot of downloads available on the p2p services. Also, many libraries now have new e-books available through their web sites. They make them expire somehow after a couple of weeks.

    In any case, there is a lot more in other formats than epub. You should download calibre and convert anything you want.

    Searched for Calibre on MarketPlace and all that came up was Books WordPlayer. Where is calibre?

    you an just google search epub ebooks on your phone browser and d/l from there. They will already be in the epub format, no need to convert. Aldilko itself has many classic books available for d/l.

    Anyone have any favorite sites for paid books? It's nice to take a break from the classics once in a while and read something current.
