Public Domain Books via RSS to the Kindle? Yes please!

Thanks to Verilees for the heads up: FeedBooks has a whole page dedicated to step by step instructions on downloading books in the public domain to the Kindle via RSS. Yay! Free! Yay! Public Domain! Yay, overloading my poor eyes with Things to read!

    I’m still waiting for the day we can upload books directly to our brains.  Until then I’m hanging out with the old paper type.

    For those of you with a iPhone you can download Stanza free from the app store and get immediate access to lots of public domain books. Nothing like having a portable copy of the Kama Sutra….

    Sarah, that link does not work for me.  Is it just me?

    That was like instructions in alien.  I’m glad I don’t have a Kindle.  I am clearly not smart enough to own one.

    (You might be asking why I looked if I don’t have a Kindle…cause I want to know if I am smart enough to have a Kindle.)

    Stop it!  Stop it!  I’m trying to hold out for the next generation of Kindle and this hurts!  I can get Tom Jones for free…without having to pay $25 or whatever it sells for in the bookstore?  I can re-read Jane Austen without having to climb onto the highest shelf in my closet that contains all my “keeper classics.”  This is torture!

    Seriously…when is the second generation Kindle coming out?  I heard October, but then heard this was a lie.  I need to know!

    Oh dear lord, I spent hours yesterday downloading books from that site. I don’t even own an e-reader, I just downloaded them all in pdf format so that in a year or two when I *do* get an e-reader, I’ll have a library’s worth of books to load onto it immediately.

    The classics! All that old SF! Hundreds of short stories, too… I thought I was in heaven with Tor, but this site made me crazy. And all thanks to you! Bless you!

    Thanks for the tip; that’s fantastic! I read ebooks right now on my iPod Touch—and the ebooks at Feedbooks will work with it. They support many ebook readers, not just the Kindle, which is fantastic.  (I still don’t know if I’m going to get a second gen Kindle, an Astak Mentor (6”  with touchscreen) or another reader…but I know I’m waiting until October (when the Astak Mentor comes out, and, maybe, according to the rumor, the second gen Kindle.)
