It appears that my favourite technical publishers, The Pragmatic Programmers now offer their books in specialised formats for mobile devices, in addition to the PDF format.
This means that I can download my PragProg books to my iPhone and read them conveniently (using the Stanza e-book reader). Best of all – if you’ve bought a PDF edition before, the mobile formats are free. Thanks, Andy and Dave!
Not all of the books have been converted yet – out of the 12 eBooks I’ve bought, 5 have been converted so far – but the rest will come over time.
Downloading the books is easy: if you’ve got Stanza on your iPhone or iPod Touch, you simply go to pragprog.com on your iPhone/iPod Touch, login, and download your books (they may need to be regenerated first). Then you read them in Stanza. And I have to say that the conversion looks pretty darn good.
