That is indeed curious as I am using Firefox too.

Maybe it just doesn't look secure to you because the newer versions of FF no longer display the little lock icon on an https URL and instead changes the background colour of the sitename?

When you click on that coloured portion in the address bar, a pop-up box should show up giving details of the site's security certificate and you'll see the little lock icon there, or a warning if it's actually not secure.

Perhaps you could try again and see what it says?

When I try it now, FF tells me that the page I get from adding a book to the basket which goes to bridgit.geredonovan.com is verified by GeoTrust and when I click for more info, tells me that it's "high grade encryption" with "RC4, 128-bit keys".

I'm not much of a cozy-recognizer either, but in PPP's sale, Night Kill is described by an included review quote as a "zoo cosy" and the Mew Is For Murder gets comments as both "quirky" and "cozy" if you think you might want to pick up a couple.

And for my fellow Canadians, I'll mention that Relative Danger apparently has portions set in Toronto.

Thanks for that. Background color of site name does change color but I receive pop-ups with warnings. I'll just switch systems for the time being.

Same problem here. Ah well, I can get the book I wanted a little cheaper on Amazon anyway. Would prefer Kobo, but they didn't have it the last time I checked, although they had the first two in the series.

As much as I appreciate the comment, all of our books are DRM free everywhere.

Not on Kobo, they're not. Every one of Beverle Graves Myers' PPP-published titles are listed as having the download option of "Adobe DRM ePub", and so were many others when I checked earlier.

This may have something to do with Kobo once having some sort of problem with auto-DRMing the books of publishers who'd made a commitment to DRM-free whenever possible, so you might want to talk to them about getting it fixed, since they do now offer DRM-free books and tell you which ones are in the catalogue listings. (This incidentally, being information that Amazon recently removed from their own catalogue listings, so I don't recall whether I ever saw any indication otherwise on the previous promo books there. And IIRC, Sony auto-DRMs everything as well, and Cory Doctorow had to fight to keep them from doing so to his books.)

I would love to be able to apply Kobo's sporadic discount coupons to the following books in series that I've enjoyed if they became DRM free there.

Thanks for taking the time to respond, and also for offering such nice introductory sale prices and bundled-format-without-DRM terms.

The first four Dobson/Pelletier books are available at the Philadelphia Free Library, if you have a membership there and want to try them. They were/are Random House, and the last two are PPP.

Another 12 of these 99 cent introductory specials in the new rotation at PPP's now-restored promo webpage, another $11.88 USD spent this evening. I'm quite pleased with this month's selections, as there are a few of my favourite themes in there.

WWII homefront! WWII overseas! Art! Archaeology! East Asia! British snark! Historicals! Academia! Science! Awesome!

Hopefully I'll actually have time to read some of them this time around in the upcoming weeks post-purchase (still haven't gotten more than a few chapters in on February's most promising titles, sigh). <-- aside from the fact that I still have hair and sincerely hope I don't look that jaundiced, this has not been me for well over two months now

I love me some first books of series for $0.99.

Sorry scifi bundle, my heart belongs to mysteries and I couldn't resist the Dragon, Faraday cage, erotic novel of suspense, or Confederate guns.

I thought that Stealing the Dragon sounded good, I'll have to pick it up through Kobo though as the Poison Pen checkout doesn't like me

The website was great to buy from this time it seems - add to cart put in details press buy - download link and receipt info appears. Job done. Very nice!

The Torch of Tangier was 702 for the year!
