3. iPod Software > 38. Convert Text Files into iPod Books

Convert Text Files into iPod Books

Convert the many readily available text files on the Web into readable iPod notes.

Since there aren’t a ton of books out there to read on your iPod, if you want more choice you will have to get down and dirty and convert some text files yourself. Finding source material isn’t hard; check out Project Gutenberg (http://www.gutenberg.net)for thousands of free books.

Getting the Files onto Your iPod

For the purposes of this hack, I’ve decided to go with one of my favorite authors, James Joyce. Rather than overload my iPod with something as grandiose as Ulysses, I’ve decided to download the much shorter collection of short stories, Dubliners (available from Project Gutenberg at (http://www.gutenberg.net/text01/dblnr11.txt), as shown in Figure 3-14. Feel free to choose another text to walk through these steps with me, although if you haven’t read Dubliners, I highly recommend it.
