Edited:Found The Swarm ebook
Some days ago I asked:
"Hello everybody. I have an EBW 1150 reader. I am looking for an ebook, The Swarm by Frank Schatzing.
I found it on fictionwise (and other sites) but it says that it is available in mobipocket secure format. I believe I can't read this book on my device, right?
I also searched for it in "other ways" but had no luck, found it only in german language.
What can I do to put this book on my device?"
This is what I did:
"Today, half an hour ago, I bought my first mobipocket book. It was The Swarm, by Frank Schatzing.
I bought it for $9.09 from BooksOnBoard.
Immediately I used Secure Mobipocket Decoder and got the html file. I could not load it into word though, probably because it had so many special characters (german and norse). I just opened it in firefox and did a copy-paste into word. Then it just took me half an hour to make bold the chapter names and start them in new pages.
It is official, it works!"
PS. I know I could get it in .lit format, that can be unDRMed more easily, but I wanted to try mobi.

you could buy it here in MS LIT format and use convertlit.exe to convert to html:
actually, it's cheaper here:
i haven't found it any "other" way either.

I've found it cheaper at BooksOnBoard for only $15.96.
You would need to purchase it in a format where you can strip the DRM and then convert it to another format. Book Designer would be your best bet for converting it.
