I am giving ebooks a try also, and will let you know how it goes :)
As far as John Thornhill and his PlanetSMS package. It could be good, but 50% of the links on his web site are broken! Thus, if you try to download any of the so called 9000 ebooks, none of the links work. Same thing with all the auction templates, website templates, etc., under their template section. I have contacted them 3 times with absolutely no response!
I am sure there are more areas not working.
Either way, if they are going to advertise on here and SaleHOO is recommending them, then he should at least have an updated website!
Don't spend your money on his special offer. It is a waste until he gets his web site brought up to date.
