Now allows you to download ebooks purchased through them in different file formats, instead of only one format. So if you previously purchased a book in .lit or .pdf format you can now download it in other formats including .html and .imp.

note: correct link www.mybookstoreandmore.com

I can't spell....

Wrong web address, should be http://www.mybookstoreandmore.com. Not much information about formats, but the news page says:
Quote:
We have changed the way you select a format for your eBook. Instead of choosing the format and then buying your book, you will buy the book and select the format in your e-Bookshelf.

All of your previous orders will be in your bookshelf, even those from our very first launch in January of 2006.
I think this means the ebooks are what FictionWise would call multi-format, and usually this implies that they are DRM-free (because DRM providers charge per ebook per format).

Do you work there? You seem to have a list of possible formats but I can find no such list on the site. You have to buy the book and then see if it comes in a format that you can use. Not a particularly good business model.

work there

Naw I don't work there. I have the list of available formats because I looked at it when I downloaded my files.

I believe in sharing good info!

Are the 4 formats: HTML, IMP, PDF, and LIT the full list of available choices? Do all eBooks offer those 4? Is the PDF sized for a portable device or a piece of paper? So many questions before I can add it properly to the wiki.

The site is mostly romance/erotica with mostly unknown authors. Even the science fiction is not really science fiction. Oh well.
