I collect electronic books, the older the better. I have an interest in craft skills so have cookery books, fermentation and distillation books, engineering books etc.

Happy to swap. ;)

Copied from post in whisky and whiskeys

Hope you don't mind ED! ;)

Not all of Harry's library is archived here
http://web.archive.org/web/201012182049 ... epage.html#
The archive section is the only topic containing material.
But enough reading to get you through Xmas. :)

Any chance the few .docx pieces could be converted to .pdf

I'm one of the Linux rebels so I can't open proprietary Microsoft formats generally.

Oh and I'll see if I can find Gert Strands e-book on activated charcoal filtering for neutral/vodka when I get home........

No problem, I will do that later. Thanks for pointing it out.

I have to routinely do this as I very often can't open downloaded word documents. Must be an incompatibility with my version of Office.

Some of the open source systems can open older .doc but .docx is the latest twist at trying to force people to their system.

I believe (may be wrong) that all versions of MS word can open .odf (open document format), but I don't know about saving in .odf so likely the reliable fallback of .pdf may be a better approach......
