    Specifically, I'm looking for this: https://web.archive.org/web/20061219052627/http://www.ereader.com/product/detail/10429 :

    "Merriam-Webster's Spanish-English Dictionary"

    Would any of you happen to have this or any of the other PalmOS eReader Spanish-English dictionaries? I want to read the newspaper on my palm device as it is relatively undistracting and I can read it in bed without disturbing anyone in a low light setting. The Handspring backlight is perfect. :)

    I'm in need of a spanish-english dictionary to use with eReader so that I can read Spanish language newspapers and learn Spanish more quickly.

    Here is an example of one: https://web.archive.org/web/20061219052627/http://www.ereader.com/product/detail/10429
    "Merriam-Webster's Spanish-English Dictionary"

    I'm using Calibre to convert Spanish language newspapers to epubs. It's so great to have an undistracting e-reader with a dim backlight that doesn't disturb anyone when reading at night. It also doesn't wake me up too much... But lookups are really slow now becuase I have to switch apps to do so.. the lookups in eReader when you have a dictionary installed are really fast and useful.... but I don't have the right dictionary!

    Here is the only thing I could find on a still functioning web site.

    https://www.ectaco.com/English-Spanish-Talking-Partner-for-Palm-OS

    It's pretty pricey and may not be exactly what you are looking for, but it does work on Palm OS 4 (you said Handspring, so I'm hoping it has that and isn't still on OS 3).

    There's one that's less pricey:

    http://www.beiks.com/palm/showtitle.asp?TitleID=130

    But it requires Palm OS5 and the website hasn't been updated in a decade so I'm not sure whether their shopping cart still works.

    Finding old ereader books is pretty much impossible, as far as I can tell.
