Okay… you gotta love the fact that another internet boom cycle is underway. There’s a new internet startup going around that’s offering fun incentives for building it’s userbase.

I’m not going to disclose the name here, until I reach my invite quota, but basically it’s an interesting new service that allows you to download e-books. My buddy Joel checked it out and came to a similar conclusion as I… reading books online is still difficult, but if you have a handheld or eBook reader of any kind, the files being in PDF format will aleviate that issue for you.

Some of the books in the system, available for free:

  • Civil Disobedience
    Henry David Thoreau
  • Plato’s Ethics
    Terence Irwin
  • Thus Spake Zarathustra
    Friedrich Nietzsche
  • Virtual Realism
    Michael Heim
  • Brave New World
    Aldous Huxley
  • Immortal Two 01
    Mike S. Miller
  • The Dreamland Chronicles 04
    Scott Christian Sava
  • Lyndon B. Johnson: Portrait of a President
    Robert Dallek

Y’see, an interesting cross-section of books.
