Damien I am one of those. The problem is I need all my books in an
ASCII file so I can search them. For instance I have read 35 of Asimov's
nonfiction books, and recall a phrase or subject that I want to review.
I have no good way of searching them. I would pay *more* for a an
ebook than I would a dead trees version.

The problem with the ebook is that you cant go from ebook files
to microsloth word files. Or is this not correct? spike
