Kindle ebooks for the hobby...

Can anyone reccomend any good kindle ebooks for the planted tank hobbyist? I didn't get too many decent hits when searching Amazon's site. Perhaps there are other good ebooks out there that I can convert to work on the kindle.

I bought Tom Barr's, but found it to be full of double words and grammar errors, which was kind of a bummer..

The kindle can read pdfs pretty good, so I'm game for something along those lines, too.

Ps: the Tropica catalog is an awesome reference pdf.

Not defending Tom but we aren't all writers and I know that when you are reading a published document/book you tend to want to doubt the information once you see it full of errors. But, Tom Barr is a name that I have seen everywhere personally and that type of dissemination is usually backed up by a treasure trove of information.

Having said that I'm not that aware of any ebooks regarding planted tanks but I will keep my ear to the ground now that you have sparked my interest in them.

Wait a minute... I DON'T SHARE INFORMATION WITH THE OTO TOURTURER!!! That was a great comment! I'll look around man and get back with you.

The thing about Toms book isn't a failure of the author AT ALL. The problem is that whatever software he wrote it in tracked his edits... but when he exported it to the Mobi format for the kindle, all the edits were dispalyed. So you'd see something like:

"NH3NitrateAmmonia is the mostone very important measurement to takemake."

This isn't an direct take from the text, but an example of the system mis-import.

I will now wonder out loud if, by pointing the out for him, I can get some free stuff from him...

so i found a number of non-legit resources for aquarium ebooks - one of which was actually kind of funny.

It was The Healthy Aquarium by Dr. Neville Carrington. this was not a legit ebook, but was a scan of a hardbound text. Funniest thing - the scan included the inner page with the pocket where the library card went in was glued in the pdf. Good read otherwise.
