Please request this book at Amazon/Sony

Since Amazon has added the "Please tell the publisher I'd like this book on the Kindle" link, we might be able to help each other get the books we want.

Please add a link to the book(s) you would like to see Kindle-ized, Sony-fied. Hopefully everyone reading this thread will click the link for you and you will click links for them. Win-Win!

Edit: Adding the Sony info provided by JSWolf

The direct link to Sony to request (best make sure the eBook isn't already there first)
http://connect-metrics.custhelp.com/...eys/ws?_133=25

At Sony, if you search for an eBook, found or not, you get on the right hand side...
Title not found?
Request the title.

Sony's eBookstore URL
http://ebookstore.sony.com
After trying the find one of the books already listed below at the Sony store, I'm going to assume that any book submitted will have to use the request the title link. I'm am submitting everything on the list so far to Sony. If they happen to have one of them already... oh well.

Edit: A little maintenance. I'll add everyone's links to this post as well to make them easier for folks to find.

The Harry Potter Party by J.K. Rowling
From James Clavell
From Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Colleen McCullough's Masters of Rome series:
Available in ebook form (Kindle and or Sony):

I've clicked it, although I don't have a kindle. But could it be possible that if a book is converted by Amazon, a Mobipocket version might appear too?

Thanks, that's my hope. If a Kindle version is made how much more difficult would it be for the publishers to cover all the formats (no matter what ebook reader one uses), not very, I would think.

I mentioned this in another thread but the first book I clicked on was Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policemen's Union. It's the 2008 Hugo winner for Best Novel. I'll be sure to click on everyone else's, too. Great suggestion!

OK .... I did my bit for all three books. If anyone adds others, I would be pleased to suggest those to Amazon too.

And, you are right ... if enough books come out for the Kindle, other ebook publishers would be crazy not to put them out in other formats.

Yep, it worked fine.

To make a clickable link follow these instructions (I posted this on another thread, sorry for the rerun).

Quote:
Type your message, then go back and select (highlight) the text that you want to turn into a link. After you select the text, go to the top of the window and click on the little planet earth with the 2 link chain at the bottom of it. A window will open into which you paste the url that goes with the text. Click okay and your text is now a link.

Sample

This is how it looks behind the scenes but there are brackets on either end that make the coding disappear:
