As I"m sure you realize, not all books are available for the K.

Have you looked to see if it isn't available thru other legit sources? Fictionwise?

If not, perhaps you could contact the publisher. That has been known to bring results, (sometimes). At least they'd know you want it.........Good luck!

I couldn't find it there. Do their books have DRM? If so, you can buy and dedrm the LIT or mobi format. Then convert if needed to mobi.

You are very welcome, however I would appreciate it if you realized I am not a "dessertgrandma"....as in the after dinner snack.

I'm the "desertgrandma" ..........as in all dried up.......

Oy! Dessert is not a "snack"! If I had my way, it would be all three courses of a [counts on fingers] three-course meal!

Incidentally, I've read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance more times than any other book. Mind you, that's only three. It is certainly a favourite, though I must admit I'm likely done with it now (though the pbook will always occupy the shelves. I've actually replaced it twice, having "loaned" it to people who apparently have confused ideas about the definition of the word "loaned". Grrrrr).

Cheers,
Marc
