Where to find Primo Levi books as ebooks?

Hello,

sorry if I am posting this in the wrong place, but I am looking for books by Primo Levi in English - especially "If this is a man".

So far, I have found nearly all books I wanted on amazon to load easily to my Kindle, but this just seems not to be available. Are there any other sources where I could buy the book in a way that I could convert it to Kindle format (e.g. using Calibre)?

And yes, I could, of course, buy the book as paper book ... but I don't want to.

Best regards,
Andy

You can get it free from Kobo http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/If-Th...EsQ/page1.html but then you'll have to convert it with Calibre for your Kindle.

Owly,

thank you for the info.
I got a Kobo account and tried to download, however, the ePub version is "not available due to issues with the item" and the PDF version seems to be empty. Have no way to check if that is because I don't have a "real" Kobo account or if the files are buggy, but these were my results.

So, I'm still on the search.

Best regards,
Andy

I tried to access the book and got the same result. It seems to be a problem with the source files that are over at the Internet Archive.

I don't think his books have been released as ebooks. I can only find Survival in Auschwitz.

Have you checked Google Play? From Google Play India store two books are available - A Tranquil Star: Unpublished Stories and The Magic Paint. Both published by Penguin UK.
Is there Google Play for Germany?

Same books are available at Kobo UK.

They are not free.

I'm not looking for free books, simply for eBooks I can convert to Kindle format.

Best regards,

I understand, just said they are not free unlike the ones offered by Kobo.
Google play sells epub which you can convert to Kindle format
