    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.

    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.
