Orthodox E-books?
« on: April 01, 2017, 04:16:16 PM »
There doesn't seem to be too many out there so perhaps we could start a thread on tips where to find them. I'm fairly impatient so ordering books from, say, from another continent seems quite bothersome due to postages and delivery times.

And I mean books. In the sense of Kindle, Google Play Books etc. Not some random texts like newadvent.org has. Reading long texts through a browser and regular screenlight is annoying

Are you looking just for whatever is available in e-reader standard formats (epub/mobi), or are PDF files okay as well?

Preferably the former as I find e-reader formats more readable but I'm open to other suggestions too.
