10,000 ebooks for Mobipocket and Kindle

There used to be a guy online called Blackmask who formatted Project Gutenberg public-domain titles for various ebook readers. He folded his tent, but his old DVD of 10,000 titles for Mobipocket reader (a format supported by Amazon’s new Kindle, the iRex iLiad, and just about every other ebook-reading device) is available again from a nice lady in England.

Yeah, you could scrounge all this from other sources — but it’s neatly organized here (with a browser interface that makes it easy to find what you want), and includes, in addition to the Mobipocket versions, HTML versions of each ebook, too — so that you can convert them to other formats in future. With fast shipping to North America included, it’s just US$23.99 — worth every penny, in my view.

Cut and paste this line into eBay’s search box to find this disk (don’t worry if it wraps on your screen; it’ll paste fine as a single line — and, yes, that’s a period, not a comma, in 10.000):
