As an avid eBook reader the only reason I keep Microsoft XP on one of my laptops is to enable me to synch my PPC and download and install ebooks.
I have just discovered "Calibre" and it seems almost to good to be true. Their site gives you full downloading instructions, fully supports Mint, and downloading from the command line is easy.
I have only just started using it and find that it won't accept eBook Reader books. I get the message, "supported by DRM".
I haven't tried synchronising my PPC yet but in the meantime I wonder if anybody has, or is using this software. Any comments will be appreciated.
