08-05-2010: 1 book was added: Futuristic Tales of the Here and Now - Part I: Anda's Game by Cory Doctorow. This is a comic book I converted into .fb2 format. It is full of images - therefore the filesize could be huge, so I decided to publish the whole collection in parts. Size of the images is approximately 800x480 pixels (the display size of my new PDA), and therefore reding the text in bubbles is not easy. So far I have rewritten the texts in the first screen so that they are more legible. The rest might be quite a challenge to read at the meantime. If time allows I will rewrite the rest of the bubble texts soon. Meanwhile enjoy this as a little preview :-)
