If you want to read on Kindle device, then you can easily convert the epub to .prc or .mobi format.

Ok.. looks interesting. Sadly, my German is too rusty (was never very good...) Still what a great idea.

Hi Bryce,
I hope you will like the stories. I must admit I did not read them so far.

Hi Zoltan,

thanks for the hint. I use a program named CALIBRE for book convertion. Which program do you use?

Hi Rosalie,

I thought it would be interesting for my international readers.
If someone would offer me a frre book in French I would just copy your comment and replace German by French :-)

Rosalie Skinner said...

LOL Edi,
Hey, at least you are fluent in two languages! Don't knock that skill.

Dear Rosalie,

I'm more than happy to be able to express myself in two languages. It is incredible to see what I would have missed without my knowledge of English language.
