Any recommendations for good guidebooks to download?

My local library has e-books for check out, so I tried the e-book of Foder’s France 2011. While I like having a guidebook on my IPad and loved the easy link to recommended websites, I don’t care for Foder’s. It’s too high end for lodging and eating recommendations. Some parts of France are covered in excruciating detail while others (notably WWII stuff in Normandy) are barely even mentioned.

Never tried the ebook guides – but it looks like Lonely Planet is beginning to offer their guides on iPad. Not sure how it stacks up to the guide book itself, though. . .
