Hey Sleo, I wonder where you got the books in eBook format?

I remember asking the question on here a while back if Janny was going into ePublishing and she said no (if I remember rightly)...

I could very well be wrong, but just thought I'd ask.

I only got FP thru SF in eformat and I got them from Waterstones in the UK. I misspoke about all of them. Sure wish I could get the first 3 because it's so much easier looking for things. I have a Nook, so use EPUB files. They're available from Amazon.com in the US, but only from Grand Conspiracy thru SF. For some stupid reason they don't have Fugitive Prince.

Thanks!

It might be a licensing thing regarding why they don't have the others up. Different publishers, different contract dates / obligations / etc.

I've an iPad and would love to get them on there despite having the whole series on my bookshelf.

You're welcome. I suppose it could be licensing, but also the Amazon Kindle has its own formatting and apparently it's difficult to format ebooks so that they're readable in all formats. I downloaded Kindle for PC to read things that are available there that I can't find elsewhere, and the formatting was atrocious, and not a problem at all in the Nook version.

HarperCollinsUK is the publisher of all the books in the series. The later volumes have made it into e-format because they could more quickly be converted. The earlier volumes are take longer but customer demand could speed up the process.
