I must admit that I have a passion for my Amazon Kindle - I read a book, and then very quickly skip onto the next. This little ebook reader is fantastic and a must have for any overland trip as it can contain your whole library. Owning one prompted me to investigate if any overland related ebooks were available:
Here's a list of the books I found (links to Amazon UK). There are not as many as I had hoped, including no ebooks from author Chris Scott (Overland Handbook). Most of the older titles are not available which I would have thought would have been easy to do.
