List of Ebook Retailers?

Is there a list of places to buy ebooks?

I’ve checked the usual haunts but I can’t seem to find anything I want to read after my initial three books and well… £13 for an ebook seems a bit high!!

http://ebooks.whsmith.co.uk/

http://www.booksonboard.com/

http://www.fictionwise.com/

http://www.waterstones.com/waterston...e.do?ctx=10030

Anywhere else?

Ooo Wiki

The availible formats are confusing me though, I'm hoping ePUB will create some kind of standard for the world of ebooks.

What's with all the dodgy fantasy romance novels? lol

From what I have been reading, think it was on teleread but I 'm not sure. ebooks used to be the domain of scfi but it appears that romance ebooks in all their flavours such as mills&boon, paranormal etc are taking over

It's kinda scary... Mills & Boon have their own Ebook section to their site.

I fear for my innocent eyes when it comes to my ereader. I just want some Jack Ketchum material and more clive barker stuff

eharlequin.com if you like romance books

Harpercollins.com


I think the only compatible formats for the 505 would be PDF though---some have a problem with this, but I, personally don't mind the PDFS. To each his own, huh.

Romance? Do they get stabbed or go on magic carpet rides in these books?
