The CCC in Ebook format


I just got an ebook device and I am very interested in getting the Catechism downloaded onto it. Does anyone know where I can get it.

Thank you

They also have a short catechism by St Augustine.

Which book reader did you get, the Kindle?

Thank you for the site I have book marked it.

You can download the CCC as a plain-text file from:

I believe that the Kindle can read plain-text files.

this is the search result from the kindle store

I am not going to download one until I hear from somebody about searchability

Note that I am not sure if this file is being made available legally. The website does not mention that they have permission from the USCCB to make it available.
