The CD is fantastic: it has the complete text of no fewer than 38 books, including the entire Harrington series, as well as many others from lots of different authors, all in several different formats for your reading pleasure. (There's even copies in a form suitable for reading on PalmOS and WinCE devices.) It's also got samples from audiobooks, a few filks, and some other goodies. Best of all, it really is freely copyable. That should be enough to keep me reading for a while.
I also picked up a few other books (aw, cmon, you really didn't expect me to get out of a bookstore with just one book, did you?!), but they'll wait till after I finish this one.
