Not that I doubt your sincerity, but that's what I'm not sure about. This is what Kobo says for the "ereaders" option:

Quote:
You can read this item on your Kobo eReader (or other select electronic reading devices). The Kobo eReader lets you carry your whole library with you, so that you can read on the go. Check out our demo for more information!
That part I put in italics is what has me confused. Anyway, like I said, I've sent them an e-mail to ask and will post whatever they answer.

I sent them an email too and got back the wrong answer, asked again and got back what I think is correct

me: what format I will get if I buy a book that has Available formats: Web Mobile


kobo: Hi,

Thank you for your message. The format you would receive is kepub. Web is available for reading on your computer, and Mobile can be read on Iphones, Ipods, and Ipads.

Yours Sincerely
The Kobo Team


me: I would receive epub even though it says Available formats: Web Mobile? It does not have epub in that list.


kobo: Hi,

Thank you for your reply. If it says web and mobile then it means the book can be read on our website, www.kobobooks.com, or a mobile device such as an iPhone or Blackberry.

Sincerely,
The Kobo Team

Even if you do, that's no guarantee. My Kobo reader was sold by Borders. So, it won't sync with the Kobo desktop app, but only the Borders app (oddly, it came with the 100 free classics from Kobo, not the 5 or so from Borders; it also caused constant reboots of my PC for 4 days, until I managed to completely wipe it clean, classics and all, then get it to sync; I've never attempted a sync since, no matter what I could read that way, as a result, and use Calibre and ADE to manage it, instead).

It seems that if one wants epub without the documented issues and concerns listed on this thread, that one should probably buy the Sony epub and forget about Kobo's epub.

If you enjoy the wonderful Kafkesque writings of this Nobel Prize winning author - as I do - then you should check out this great collection.

It's $19.80 at Sony, while Amazon has it at $28.80. I reported the price difference, in hope that they would lower the price to make it competitive but nothing so far. Don
Amazon did price match at $19.80 (for those who want a Kindle version).

For the record, I'm still (after all this time), waiting for an answer from Kobo. At first they told me that all I needed was ADE and how to use it. Then, I told them I know all about ADE and asked why this didn't list version options. Then they asked where I was buying it from, then I was told they were escalating my question and then I never heard from them. I've sent them another e-mail asking what happened. I will report when I get an answer.

FLASH:

Amazon finally decides to become competitive with this title!

It's now $19.80.

They never emailed about wanting to be competitive, so last week I purchased my copy from Sony.

Well now this is just stupid. Why the hell can't I buy José Saramago books in the Europe region??? That includes Portugal and he's a Portuguese author. Those restrictions are really annoying and nonsense.
