Further to the post below
This really is an impressive collection of ebooks. We have seen the
Lonely Planet Guidebook collection in PDF form before but the
(incomplete) collection here is in mobi format. That means they are
much easier and more useful to use on ereaders especially touch screen
ones such as the iPad or the various Android pads as they include
clickable links allowing you to go to each section etc. If you are
already travelling with a tablet, these things are very useful as you
can get rid of those weighty travel books. Ipads are still
excruciatingly expensive and the big name Android competitors are not
much cheaper. The good news for budget travellers is that the Chinese
generic competition has now become pretty reasonable quality and
capacitive screens (like an ipad rather rather than the fairly hopeless
old resistive screens), 1GB RAM, and Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) are
now available from internet based importers from around $100-150.
