Any suggestions about decent materials regarding Orthodoxy (whether explicitly or tangentially)? Format doesn't matter, as I can covert nearly anything to a Kindle friendly format. Blogs would fit in here as well.

The suggestions about anything from your favorite well-formated Bible to fiction.

The biggest concerns for me in terms of content are decent formatting and, if in translation, a good version.

I hope someone knows of a good electronic version of the Divine Liturgy and Great Vespers in English.

Many Thanks!

I just wanted to add in case I wasn't clear, I am not looking for general recommendations about where I can get such things, but rather specific materials you have had experience with in an electronic format.

Thanks again.

If you go to Google Books, I think you can find a good free copy of the service book by Isabel Hapgood. There are also increasing numbers of e-books on Orthodoxy coming out these days. I am reading "A Cloud of Witnesses," which is about Middle Eastern saints, and is by Bishop Demetri Matta Khoury; you can also find free PDF downloads of several collections of sermons by St. John Chrysostom, on Google Books. There is a Coptic website called Orthodox ebooks, which of course has plenty of Coptic books, other historical Christian texts and some fragments of saints' writings.

There's a U.K. store, Book Depository, which has some good Orthodox e-books. You can download from anywhere, naturally. Slight warning: some of the older and more scholarly books will cost a lot. More recent things will be average-priced, usually. Just what I've seen. Anyway, do a search for "Orthodox" there and you may find some things.

avaxhome.ws - e.g. I found there "Beeing as Communion" by Zizioulas.
It's possible to get a lot of religious books there.

Found at Barnes and Noble...

The Pilgrim Way in ebook format
The Complete Philokalia also in ebook format.

I am reading The Pilgrim Way now, was availble for 9.99
The second book was .99 cents.  Which makes no sense because it is 10 times the size of the first book.  Like you I am always on the look out for ebooks since it is easier for me to carry a complete library to read from.  Smiley

Correction the credit card showed a charge of 9.99. Evidentally the first 9 was left off by the B&N site (I checked).  Still 9.99 is reasonable for the 1500 plus pages. Smiley

I was just as Barnes and Nobeland searched for Nook books under Orthodox Christianity and came up with this link:  http://productsearch.barnesandnoble.com/search/results.aspx?SRT=R&WRD=orthodox+christianity&STORE=EBOOK&SZE=10&SAT=1

There are quite a few books and even some prayerbooks and the General Menion by Orloff, as well as by St. Seraphim, St. John of Kronstadt, St. John Damascene, and St. John Chrysostom.

Bump.

Assume I've exhausted the still active links in this thread.
