You know, it occurs to me that I may be amassing an unusual "Amazon recommends" list here.

i hope this isn't an english only thread. i've written to publisher Viviane Hamy about Fred Vargas' books but got no reply. perhaps amazon will have more luck. so you know, at least some of her books have already been translated into english ; if you like intelligent, philosophical, well-written mysteries with really elaborate character developpment, do give her books a try (and click on them in english too ).

ta very much.

It has a publisher link so it's fair game for clicking. I'm adding it to the top post.

I went for the boxed set. Loved this series and I see another book in the series is due in October (I'm adding it as well).

It seems like we can click on the same title a multiple of times. I don't know if it no longer counts after the first click but I think I'll try clicking each of the books on the list, once a day. Couldn't hurt.

Although I believe it's a lost cause, my pick would be Patrick O'Brian's HMS Surprise.

Also Zelazny's Lord of Light, which slightly edges out the first Amber book.

As both Amazon and Sony have a way on their respective sites to request eBooks, I've moved this thread and renamed it appropriately. I suggest that for every request for an eBook, that we go to both Amazon & Sony to put in a request. The more requests that are out there, the better chance of getting eBooks.

The Sony thread on requesting
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27720

The Amazon thread on requesting
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27545

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.

i've also submitted the same list and included the following comment :
Quote:
This list is representative ; obviously, when I have listed one book by an author, it is understood that I would like to see ALL the books by that author made available as ebooks. Also, my format of choice is EPUB since I strongly support standardisation of ebook formats.

I thank you very much for your attention. Please feel free to contact me with any new developments regarding these requests at my.address@gmail.com.

Cordially,
i will of course let you know if i receive any response...

While I agree that standardization is a good thing. I personally do not like the way the epub versions look on my reader. I prefer the text to be fully justified.

Both of the examples come from Feedbooks, one I converted to LRF using Calibre the other loaded just as an epub. If I could be assured that all epub files that I purchased could be converted to LRF I would be all for buying epub books.
