    FREE e-BOOK

    I am currently looking for a FREE E-Book program, that is not a trial version, or
    limited in functions, eg..not being able to save the book, and something that makes
    it easy for me to create the book, and one where the viewer doesn't have to download a
    program to view it...

    I will appreciate you help please!

    Thank you

    You could write the books using a program like Microsoft Word or the Word program in Open Office and then use a conversion tool to convert it to a PDF, which is very suitable and easy to share. Example of a conversion tool - http://www.youconvertit.com, converting Word files into PDF + lots more file conversion options.

    Does that help?

    I don't get it.

    If you create an ebook with MS Word or Open Office people will need to have them installed to be able to read it, even if it's on .doc or .odt format. If you convert your ebook to PDF format people will need Acrobat reader or similar. The only way for someone to read an ebook without having to download an application would be if you published it online on your website.

    Anyway, if you're looking for free ebook creation software you can visit

    That's true, however a large proportion of Internet users already have Adobe programs installed on their PC's and can view PDF's. I was at a conference once where an executive from Adobe claim that Acrobat Reader is almost as popular as web browsers.
