"A Year in Provence"

I have been trying to find a kindle version of "A Year in Provence" by Peter Mayle because it is the next book I want to read aloud to my wife. Amazon is limited to an audible version. Any suggestions?

Wait for it to come out on ebook?

Or see if it is available as an EPub and take a look at Apprentice Alf's website.

Calibre tells us that the least expensive copy appears to be on Kobe, in ePub format. So buy that, strip the DRM, and convert it and transfer to your Kindle.

(And yes, it really is just that easy, though we can't give you details on the DRM part of the process because of forum rules.)
