I'm most interested in getting content from Australia & NZ. I know Angus & Robertson is one such (http://www.angusrobertson.com.au), I see there is also an Australian Gutenberg site (see gutenberg.net.au/). I have no dealings with any of these so can't comment on if they are good to deal with.

I would also like to see links to Canadian Amazon (Amazon.ca) and the Sony reader for Canada.

I got very confused by the 'search' feature of 'Get books' - it took a long while to realise I was searching what was already listed instead of doing an online web search. I could not understand why no aparaent action was taking place and I was not getting any results!

The response I got from Angus & Robertson was not encouraging:
"Yes our ebooks are DRM. For Sony eReaders you would need to use Reader for PC.
If you are purchasing from overseas then our eBooks may not work. We can unfortunately only guarantee that they will work within Australian territories. If you are based outside of Australia then we can only recommend that you seek a supplier in your country as they will be able to guarantee the ability of the eBooks that they sell to be downloaded by you."

Gutenberg gone

My Calibre seems not to be able to Get Books from Project Gutenberg. PG is on the list of stores, but no book is ever found in it now. This is a new phenomenon. Any ideas why?

Moved post to the Get Books thread so it will attract the attention of the developers. You might also want to submit a bug report.

This got moved to a Get Books thread, and might have got ignored. Does anyone have any suggestion as to why there are no books identified from Project Gutenberg? I could Get books from there a couple of months ago.

I just checked this out and search by Title is not working for the Project Gutenberg store, but search by author or keyword works fine.

If you don't get a response follow my previous suggestion about submitting a bug report.

Do not submit a bug report for Gutenberg. They asked us to change how we integrate with them. It is working properly. What you're seeing is what they're choosing to return to calibre. Take the short comings of their OpenSearch implementation up with them.

I noticed that after using Calibre to look for books on PG my IP address had been banned by PG for using a "robot" or similar automated system. I have twice had to have the ban removed and have now stopped using Calibre to trawl PG.

Have you tried accessing PG from a web browser to make sure your address hasn't been banned.
