    I've just bought an iPod Touch (8GB). It was actually a gift (I paid half and my mum paid the other half). She uses hers for reading eBooks sometimes, but she only ever gets the books (usually free) from the iTunes app store. What ways are there to get more books (preferably DRM free). I also have a bunch of PDF books from when Tor were giving them away about a year ago. How would I be able to get these on to the iPod (if that's even possible)? Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: I have been (and still am) trying to google for some answers but don't seem to be coming up with any good results.

    Another EDIT: WH Smith have a good site for buying Ebooks but they're in Adobe reader format. I'm not sure how to get them onto the iPod yet. It's a great shame that Amazon haven't gotten into the UK eBook market yet. It seems they're only interested in the US with their Kindle.

    Stanza can send ebooks from your computer to your ipod touch.

    Yeah, after looking into the Stanza app for iPhone I found this stuff out. It's a pretty good app actually and once I get home I'll download that Stanza app and see if I can get those PDFs on my iPod Touch.

    Ebook Readers

    Air Sharing will read PDF's (and lots of other things), Bookshelf is my current favorite for books, it works with both PCs and Macs. Both use wireless to send books to your touch.

    Yup I use Stanza to read and copy my ebook collection to the iPod Touch. I also downloaded those sci-fi books from TOR that you mentioned so I know exactly how you feel :D
