Who has a good source for eBooks I can download and burn to CD.

I would like to by some for my trip, but I have a missing "shopping" gene, and would rather do it online.

Do the major bookstores do this?

GD,

This doesn't answer you questions, but it might be useful.

Cracker Barrel Restaurants have books on Cassette and CD. You pay for them at one place and when you return them at any restaurant, you get your money back except for $3.43 per week. There should be lots of Cracker Barrels in CA.

If you're talking about your trip to Colorado, you'd have to check their listing:

http://www.crackerbarrel.com/trip-booksaud...o.cfm?doc_id=48

EDIT: Woops, I just checked. There are none in California.

I switched from Colorado to Portland, Morgan. Too many obstacles for this winter.

Might try again in summer.

Thx for the links

Gina,
You didn't say what you like to read, but if you like Science Fiction, here's a good selection. Free, and downloadable in a number of formats.

http://www.baen.com/library/

Almost forgot: Most of this is Public Domain (in other words, not new) but the price is right................ http://www.gutenberg.org/

You're coming to Portland?

De nada, Gina.

None in Oregon either, or Washington. I guess the whole left coast is without.

Others may find the links helpful.

Cracker Barrel also has good food.

Thanks for the link, DaveK. I'll try it out.

How do you get the CD version of the books.

You have to download the book and burn it to CD.

Hey Dave! Your second link is great! They have audio books too! I am going to start brushing up on the classics! I will burn several of those and keep in the trailer for easy evening entertainment when needed.

I will be up Xmas time

Gina, you might want to look at audible.com if you're interested in audio books.

I'm cheap...I'd get books on "tape" from the local library.

PS: we have a new Crate and Barrel located just south of Portland in Tualatin/Sherwood I'm assuming that's what you meant Morgan, instead of Cracker Barrel

The Cracker Barrel is a restaurant chain as notorious for the discrimination lawsuits its policies generate as it is for its recipes. Its been boycotted by numerous groups for numerous reasons for well more than a decade. They have a corporate "We discriminate and we are proud of it." attitude. The charcoal skinned mammy dolls with watermelon lips in the gift shop had me heading for the door long before they became famous for their explicit and proud of it hiring and serving policies.
