I have no intention of search worldwide to make sure any book I nominate is available worldwide. That leaves the mods or interested parties to do the searches and then append that information to the nominations. I seriously do not see the need. If you're interested in reading the *book*, you should vote for the *book*. If it's not available as an ebook at your location, I'm pretty sure you can find it in another format. Unfortunately, availability versus quality is generally a kiss of death for the voting process.
I've said the idea came because of Black Rain. It won as January's book. Now we are getting a number of posts that it's not available as an eBook. I cannot say how many of these people voted for it. But if they know ahead of time it's not available in the format they want, it won't be voted for.
