@Tom - well its FREEEEEEEE so you got more than you paid the evil author of the program. also will be nice if you spend thousands of hours developing a free program and then let others criticize you with BIG BOLD ANGRY CAPITALS!!!!

@bzl333 weel, you have to bear criticism if you want to improve! (unkind criticism is another matter)
Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!
For me it's a must-have but also a could-be-better!! :-)

I don't see a version 1.9 or a webpage

I was able to successfully convert a DOCX file to MOBI file for an Amazon Kindle device. All I really needed was the index and basic formatting preserved and that's what it did. Also images worked well. I'm very happy.

ReadThemAll v1.2.21

  • Suggested by maxerist

ReadThemAll is a e-book reader primarily designed to be used in a hand-free mode. Although it can be used as a general purpose reader, its main benefits come from its innovative auto-scrolling: a way of reading books so you don't have to manually list pages.

The program is a successor of the identically named software for PalmOS.

Unicode support: No
Path portability: Automatic relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch RTA.exe.

Doesn't work with PDFs... which is kind of a bummer! :(

Oustanding idea but how about a mode that scrolls text like a movie scrolls text? Why doesn't it have that? The text-replacing line roll thing is just odd.

For every file you open, it creates a hidden .rtainfo file in the same folder. And I thought Picasa was bad.
