Epub3 - Penguin new release fiction - download stuff

Please remind me about buying Epub 3 ebooks, my recollection is that it shouldn't be a problem downloading it into Sony Reader for PC, v2.2 (and not updated to the Kobo version).

That is, it shouldn't be a problem provided Kobo hasn't changed to an updated ?? (I can't remember what it's called ) And if Kobo has changed to this updated ??, then it would mean that it could only be downloaded into ADE 3?

Also, from threads/posts over the last month or so it seems that downloading the kepub version of Epub 3 is fixed now, so that should mean that obok can handle it on entry into Calibre?

This particular ebook I don't want to buy, but it struck my attention because it's newly released, May 2015, is a Penguin and is fiction.

Was there ever a problem downloading a KEPUB, whether based on EPUB3 or not?

I thought the problem was downloading the ADE-compatible EPUB3 (which doesn't use oboK anyway).


As for whether or not Kobo has enabled hardened DRM on the Adobe Content Server, thus necessitating ADE3/4... probably not, simply because retailers don't seem to be brave enough to take the jump, despite demanding the upgrade in the first place.

Kobo recently started giving out epub3 files. Most of the old undownloadable books are downloadable as epub3 files now. You can download them with ADE2 and strip the DRM. No need for ADE 3 or 4.

I will check again now for you...

[insert 10 minute]

This is available as epub3 for my region. I downloaded it with ADE2 and added to Calibre and stripped the DRM just now.

Works.
