Newton Books
Newton devices have the ability to present pre-built, read-only documents called Newton Books that can include text and graphics, have good navigational controls and can be graphically annotated by the reader. It's a sort of Adobe Acrobat for the Newton.

There are hundreds of Newton Books out there on every kind of subject and you can find a lot of them at these sites:

Pudge's Pad perl Newton Books:

Internet Movie Database for Newton:

I have created some Newton Books for my own use that may be of interest. All books have proper overviews and some use hotlinks to navigate.

Electronics Basics

A compilation of electronics data, circuits and related information I find handy to have easy access to. Waveforms and basic formulae are done but circuits have to be drawn.

Geometry Basics

A quick reference to the formulas for determining areas, perimeters, volumes and other attributes of 2D and 3D geometric shapes. Graphics are nearly done but equations have to be checked.
