Just wanted to thank you for your great work on all these books
I only have my Iliad a short time but much prefer to read the mobipocket format.
You are doing a great job
Thank you Katania

the mobi reader works perfectly on my nokia 9300, even better than adobe reader.

The books look wonderful and the selection is extremely good. Well I suppose the comment on the selection is subjective but it works for me. I find the selection broad and interesting.

Thank you all for the hard work and care that has gone into this. It is a treasure.

Hi, I'm Laurel, the owner of my first ever e-book reader, an Amazon Kindle. I really appreciate the books that you all make available here. What a great service. I'm finding that they are better formatted than many of the books from the Kindle store.

I've only run into one problem. I downloaded this book from Patricia. It works fine on the Mobipocket reader but will not come up on my Kindle. Patricia says that there is no copyright problem with the text or the pictures. She thought that one of you might be able to solve this puzzle for me.

I just checked the Kindle store and downloaded a sample of their version. The formatting is terrible. I really want to take advantage of the beautiful work that Patricia did. This is one of the books that I remember from my childhood. My father had a lovely edition of it and often would quote line after line. He's ninety-one now and can still quote from it.

I just took a look at the thread for the book you want to read. I do not own a Kindle, but I do have a guess as to what might be an issue. It could be the accents in the filename and/or the metadata. Try renaming the file without the accents. If it still does not work, ask Patricia to make you a new version without the accents in the metadata and see if that works. Good luck and Welcome to MobileRead.

Awake! for Morning in the Bowl of Night
Has flung the Stone that puts the Stars to Flight

It worked! Thank you, Jon. Patricia said someone here would know what to do.

You are very welcome Laurel. I believe the ilIad also has the same problem with accents.

Best to avoid accents in the filename. Accents in the title are fine.

Thank you. I use a bookeen gen 3. Would it be possible to have page numbers. I have just bought from mobipocket book store, the Anatomist but it shows no page numbers.

What use would page numbers be on a device which allows you to select a limitless range of different fonts and font sizes? They would be different for everybody!
