Hi.  I was just wondering if fictionWise had published books or if it was
only an independent.  What I mean is, can I find the current bestsellers
there or other popular books?

e-books found in .pdf format were not accessible.  I think, if my memory
serves me well, that the discussion mentioned amazon.com as a website in
which the e-books were not accessible.  Is there any place I can get
accessible ones?  My intention is to purchase an e-book and then translate
it into .brf and read it with my braille lite. Can anyone help?  Thanks in
