First up, hello - glad to be here!

Secondly, sooooooooo disappointed that the majority of ebooks seem to be fixed to the USA market. I live in Belgium. Waterstones, Smiths, BooksonBoard, Ebooks.com refuse to sell to Belgium. Is that legal? What about the freedom of goods through Europe legislation? What about our human rights?

I've been trying to download Deaf Sentence by David Lodge. Wouldnt mind, but is our money no good or something?

Tks for reading this.

Good to have your company, Oppoe. Yep, geographical sales restriction is a darned nuisance. The trouble is that agents and authors maximise income and royalties advances to publishers in different countries, so often a single publisher doesn't have the international rights to allow an online store to sell ebooks in all territories. You're OK with print because point-of-sale is point of dispatch, whereas the point-of-sale of an ebook is the location of the device on which it's downloaded. No easy answer ... yet.But you'll soon find ways to use that very neat Sony reader to great advantage. Luck and best wishes. Neil (who uses a Sony in France and is never short of reading material)

Geoff C,
Have tried all in your list 'cept Apple - but I see it's USA. I get as far as PayPal and then whoops, system kicks in - apparently happens when system reads first 4 digits of credit card which give the game away!
