    Books is an eBooks reader for your iPhone. eBook files need to go in root/Media/EBooks. You will have to create this directory on your iPhone, as it not does exist previously. The authors ask that you also make sure your extensions are correct. Books.app can only read .txt, .htm, or .html files.

    Books.app is currently available from <a href="http://code.google.com/p/iphoneebooks/">their site</a>, iBrickr/Breezy, and Installer.app. *

    Default What about Find?
    The Books app is great. Would also like pdf & maybe even doc support, but I'd really like a find function.

    Smile Thanks for Books!
    For me, the "books" program is THE killer app. I use it all the time and have read entire novels. I am totally impressed with this program. Thanks to those programers responsible for this great app! (I hope they visit this forum).

    Smile ebooks galore
    hey guys, this is my first time to post here. i found this great site to download ebooks from. it is a forum and ebooks are shared by fellow posters. you have to register first and for some files you have to convert them to .html or .txt but that's pretty easy. for pdf files, you can convert using adobe acrobat reader. just save file as .txt. and for .lit files you can download ABC Amber Lit converter. what i do is i divide the text files into parts so that they open faster on books and create a folder and just ssh. i think there's some other forum here that teaches you how to do that. anyway, here's the link
    E-Books

    also you can try searching for ebooks in 4shared.com. no registering needed. i hope you enjoy it as much as i do! have fun reading!
