Palm

Quick Instructions

  1. Download the free program TiBR to use as your eBook reader.
  2. Download the Doc version of an eBook (perhaps Frankenstein?).
  3. Install the reader (TiBR.prc) and the eBook (Frankenstein.pdb) on your Palm using Hotsync.

Now you're ready to launch TiBR on your Palm -- it will show you the eBook ready to read! In the future you'll only need to download and install your new eBooks.

Installation

eBooks must be installed on your Palm OS device using the Palm Install Tool software that came with your PDA. This will prepare the document for installation the next time you HotSync with your computer.

Recommended eBook reader software:

pReader (WebOS)
Formats: plain-text, HTML, PalmDOC, MobiPocket, eReader and ePub files.
eReader
Reads the proprietary eReader format from ereader.com (now owned by Barnes & Noble). Free, fast, and has a button that takes you directly to manybooks.net!
Formats: Doc, eReader.
Plucker
In addition to being an excellent eBook reader, Plucker is a suite of programs which provide an off-line web browser for Palm OS systems. It's free software under the FSF's General Public License, so you can copy, change, or even sell this program as long as you make the source code publicly available.
Formats: Plucker.
iSilo
iSilo reads Doc eBooks in addition to its own iSilo format, and it's very easy to convert text, HTML, or DOC files into an iSilo document using free desktop tools.
Formats: Doc and iSilo.
TiBR aka "Tiny Book Reader" (recommended for new users)
TiBR is a free PalmDoc eBook reader that only requires 49k. If you need an eBook reader that uses less memory try the Lite version, which lacks search support but needs just 25k of memory!
Formats: Doc.
Weasel Reader (formerly "GutenPalm")
Weasel Reader is a simple eBook reader for zTXT and Doc files. It is Free Software and has been released under the GNU General Public License v2. Weasel Reader requires "Zlib" which may not be visible if you're using Windows!
Formats: Doc and zTXT.
CSpotRun
CSpotRun is a free eBook reader for documents in the popular Pilot Doc format. It was designed to be smaller and simpler than commercial Doc readers.
Formats: Doc.
Acrobat Reader
PDF is a common document format for desktop computers, though it's less popular on PDAs. A PDF formatted eBook is generally larger than a Doc or Plucker copy of the same eBook, and requires an additional step to prepare it for reading on your PDA (so it's not really recommended after all!).
Formats: converted PDFs.
