    Activating MS Reader

    I don't use this software much, but I was wondering about the value of "activating" it. Are there any free e-books that would require activation? It seems like a lot of hoops to jump through, as well as a bit of a privacy issue, with a unique hardware ID and all. I doubt I'd be wanting to fork out money for e-books.

    Alan,
    This tilted towards USA stuff but there's lots of titles available UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA'S E-BOOK LIBRARY for the MS READER.

    Thanks Joe. I've had a look at Uni VA and there's quite a range. The $$ offerings from Amazon etc. are, by contrast, rather less inspiring. I think I'll stick to the freebies on this occassion, unless somebody points to something worthwhile in the commercial areas.

    Alan,

    Keep an eye on the MS site. Last summer & fall they ran a deal to be able to d/l diiferent e-books. Just to drum up interest I think. Maybe they'll do it again.
