Did anyone get Second Shift from Kobo? The formatting was a mess - my Sony wouldn't even open it. It downloaded as a zip file and I renamed it to epub which usually works. In Calibre it showed as having no cover even though the jpg was there. I fixed it in Calibre, but I shouldn't need to and Kobo customer service is so bad I'm not even going to contact them. I got the omnibus from Kobo and it was ok.

Great story so far! I first got the omnibus free from Amazon with my Prime membership and liked it so much I bought it.

I am (im)patiently waiting for Third shift.
You should use Firefox instead of IE. IE is at fault for the extension change.

I've not yet gotten Second Shift. But when I do, I'll probably do so from Kobo. I've had to fix up everything so far because the formatting is not as I'd like.

What I will do given what you've said is try a sample from Amazon and see if that's the same.

I don't think it was because of IE. Second Shift from Kobo is now there as Adobe DRM EPub, it still cannot be opened by my Sony 950, and it now has DRM.

Looks like the Amazon version is DRM free. It says you can download the book to unlimited devices, which I believe means it's DRM free. Not sure why they would put DRM on one site and not another.

They *should* be all DRM free. Hugh is very against DRM. If it does have DRM, I'd contact Hugh at his website.

I just purchased Second Shift - Order from Amazon. It is in .azw3 format but doesn't have DRM.

I'm just finishing up rereading The Hobbit in anticipation of the movie but plan to read this book next. Great series!

I just finished Second Shift, and read The Hobbit before that. What a coincidence.

Good point.

Ok so I've finished First Shift and Second Shift and now I'm anxiously awaiting Third Shift! This series has definitely sucked me in.

Although, I'm sad to say I cannot join the Silo Hobbit club as it's been quite awhile since I've read the hobbit and I'm not planning a re-read anytime soon.

It shouldn't, but I'll re-check.

Edit: Yup. Don't know why, but DRM was enabled on 2nd Shift. I fixed it. Probably due to being frazzled this month with NaNoWriMo and a release at the same time.

I just bought the books yesterday at Kobo.
Second Shift and the Wool Omnibus were Adobe DRM.

I checked again, and now Second Shift is a normal epub file! Wool Omnibus is still an Adobe DRM file.

I read The Hurricane and Half Way Home and enjoyed both of them. Wool Omnibus is next on my TBR list!

Funny, I could have sworn the Wool Omnibus was DRM-Free at one time. All his other books are DRM-free on Kobo, except the Omnibus. I wonder why?

Woot! I wasn't paying attention and just found out Second Shift went on sale.

Bought it. Settling in for an enjoyable night.



Good numbers too:
