ABOUT THE USB eBOOK COLLECTION

That's right... all available Gateways ebooks on one USB

When it comes to reading books, many of us are old fashioned -- we like the feel of physical books. But, when it comes to accessibility and the ease of international distribution, you can't beat eBooks.

Gateways has the goal of making high quality pdf versions of all its books available. At the moment we have about 70 volumes converted to pdf files.

The basic idea is quite simple. For a fraction of the cost (when individually purchased) you get all the ebooks we have available.

And, on a periodic basis we will update your collection.

Yes, that's right. Buy the full collection of ebooks available now, and we will keep your collection uptodate as more ebook titles become available.

GOOD FOR YOU AND GOOD FOR US

The value to you of having a complete library of Gateways titles is not hard to figure out. But, what about the Good for Us?

Well, don't know if you have noticed :) but this world is getting very twitchy. It is not inconceivable that with little or no notice we could go up in smoke -- poof. I like the idea of various people around the world having a few usb drives in their pockets or at home in the study.

These USB thumbdrives might mean we can smuggle this information past whatever chaos may come our way.

You can be a time-traveling smuggler of transformative technology. Now, doesn't that sound fun?

WHY PDF FILE FORMAT

There are many ebook formats: Broadband eBooks (BBeB), Comic Book Archive file, Compiled HTML, DAISY -- ANSI/NISO Z39.86, DjVu, DOC, DOCX, EPUB, eReader, FictionBook (Fb2), Founder Electronics, Hypertext Markup Language, iBook (Apple), IEC 62448, INF (IBM), Kindle (Amazon), Microsoft LIT, Mobipocket, Multimedia eBooks, Newton Digital Book, Open Electronic Package, Portable Document Format, Plain text files, Plucker, PostScript, RTF, SSReader, Text Encoding Initiative, TomeRaider, Open XML Paper Specification.

A short list of the more popular formats is: EPUB (open format designed by the Open eBook Forum) Based on XML, AZW (aka Kindle), LIT (developed for the Microsoft Reader software), PDF (created by Adobe), ODF (XML-based file format -- default format for OpenOffice), MOBI (used by the MobiPocket Reader).

So why did we choose PDF? The PDF format is very well supported. In addition to Adobe Reader, there are dozens of third-party pdf readers. And, there are many programs that will convert pdt into the other formats.

If you wish to read your book in kindle format, there are online pdf to kindle conversion programs. It is not always possible to find a converter from proprietary formats.

So, we felt pdf had the greatest chance of being readible for many years (or decades) to come.
