[bookport] Re: Reading e-books

Well, "convince" is certainly a necessary element in getting an accommodation in this matter. In my case, after initially being told that it couldn't be done, I insisted on speaking to a person that could actually make a a decision, and after esplaining the problem, was e-mailed a link to an unlocked pdf file, Unfortunately, the link didn't work and it was necessary to notify them of this by e-mail, The reply said that in the future that all the e-book download files would be able to be saved as a text file. I have since purchased two additional books from this site. I had the first book within 24 hours. Not every case will be as easy, of coourse. The site is: www.thebereancall.org


If we don't insixt that these materials be made available in a format that is usuable by the devices of our choice then they will continue to be inaccessable to us in the future. Most will probably be accommodating, it's just a matter of making a convincing case.

The key word here is "convince".  And then if you are able to accomplish
that, then you will probably have to wait 6-12 weeks for them to get the
unlocked file to you.  Part of my job responsibilities is to deal with
publishers and other resources to get course material in alternative formats
for our post secondary students.

But thanks for your response.

Although the Bookport does not support pdf format, if you click "save as
text in the file menu in Adobe Reader you can then send that file to the
Bookport. That is, unless the supplier has set security controls to prevent you from doing this. Even then, if you contact the supplier and explain the
reason,  you may convince them to send you a copy without the controls.

Hi List,

Is it possible to read e-books from e-books.com on the BookPort? It looks
like most books from this site are in either Adobe Reader or Microsoft
Reader formats.
