Ignatius Press has e-books to purchase and download

It was a bit difficult to find the list, and I'm not sure it includes everything, but search for e-books and 4 pages are returned. They are in mobipocket format - I assume DRM'ed.

sorry - can a moderator correct my spelling in the title? purchase - thanks.

I tried searching for "e-books" but came up with nothing, as did "ebooks." But then I noticed on their home page, under Browse, a link for Downloadable, which includes some audiobooks as well as e-books. No mention of DRM anywhere.

However all their e-books currently say "on back order". Oh well. I guess they'll be getting their first shipment in soon.

I'm not sure of the problem - I typed in e-book this morning in the uppermost left search box and it brought back 4 pages and none of the say "back order" :-)

Their list is meagre, but contains a few interesting titles already. One from the (at the time not yet) Pope:

Can their DRM'd Mobipocket books be easily converted to a non-DRM format? Or are newer Mobipocket files likely to be resistant to such conversion?
