These are all so great. Thank you all very much for posting these links to books. I got an ereader recently and I have been adding files to it. Some of the larger collections are really appreciated (Collected Writings of Ajahn Chah for instance as well as the Sutta Pitaka).

Huge collection of Thanisarro Bhikkhu's writings and essays in epub format:

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

There is also this other thread that I don't think has been mentioned here...

There is also this page, mentioned quite a bit in the other thread. It is just sutta books:

If you have an iPhone or iPad, there is a free Access to Insight app (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/access-t ... 25338?mt=8" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;), which is essentially the entire website wrapped in an application. So with this, you can have all the texts, with the links from the site, in your pocket. It's not the latest version of the site - the current version is 2010.08.23, not the 2009 date shown in the screenshots on the iTunes Store - but I'm sure that's good enough for most people.

You can add bookmarks to specific pages, but you can't search. You also can't change the font size, which isn't an issue on the iPad, where it's bigger, but for me, on an iPhone, the font is a bit small.

But it's free, and it's pretty much the entire site.

Re: Access to insight website in epub

I have made the "access to insight" website into a epub file. It turns out to be a large file, 36,42M, and not all links are working, but it might be interesting.

I hope it is of use for someone.
