Also available from Kobo for 6.83.

Which is a bargain since Kobo wants 10 dollar for the individual books.

I'm seriously thinking of buying this.

Can anyone yet speak to the quality of the conversion?

Thanks.

Here's some feedback on the Kindle edition from the reviews:

via Kenneth Tong "historical fiction/fantasy lover"

Quote:
Note on the Kindle edition: the font seems to be one size larger than what most Kindle books use as default. This is a very minor quibble. Thankfully, the map of Britain has made a smooth transition into the electronic form. The clear definition of the inking was preserved; none of the blurriness on Kindle pictures that can cause eye-aches here.

I got it from Kobo (coupon codes work) and it looks pretty good. Maps very readable, indented paragraphs, slight added spacing bwn para's, but not double space (except at section breaks). Good TOC.

I just got it from Amazon and it looks fine to me. It is one font size larger, but the button to change it to a smaller size is not in another room, at the end of the hall. It's like an inch away....

It is $5.69 for me too, but I thought it would be a nice gesture to post the listprice since Penguin is a Agency publisher .
