Why can't I get this book?

Went in, created an account and click on Buy Book for this freebie. The book is not moving into My Cart to allow me to complete the purchase and download. Anyone else encountering this type of problem with BoB?

You have to click on "Add to card" next to the format on the buy now page.

Trying to buy book

I am clicking on Buy Now however, it does not allow me to choose my format nor does it put the book into my cart to allow me to choose the appropriate format. I know it is something simple, just cannot figure it out.

Just thought of something

Can I purchase these books for use on Kindle? That might be the issue.

It appear to be DRM-free so I would try with mobipocket.

However I don't have a kindle so I'm not sure how to proceed
Check the kindle forum

Here a post that may or may not help

If it is DRM free mobipocket, you can just copy it into the documents folder on your Kindle and it should open fine.

Here my buy it now page
http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/9311/bobkdo.jpg

I circle the add to cart button.

If you don't have that pages, I don't know do you have something that block javascript or similar.

Also try to click on the buy it now tab beside Synopsis-Details-Except-Review-Buy it now

Sometime it's lower on the page

Thanks

First, thanks to you all for helping me with this. It appears that I am going to have to get the PID using the instructions listed out by others on this thread. The longer you have the Kindle, the most advanced your needs become. Once I have that and input it into BoB, I think I will be good to go. DanT, the .jpg picture you sent is not what I see when I click on Buy. I think the problem is around the lack of the PID therefore, not allowing me to purchase the books. Will try a little later at home and report back. Thanks again for everyone's help. Seems pretty straight forward and if all goes well, will be yet another site to get books.

Definitely not DRM free ... and BoB (like most others) won't accept a Kindle PID.

It's read on your PC, a different reader (that supports one of their DRM formats), or break the DRM (which is most likely illegal, if you have a Kindle).

It open on a mobipocket without the PID registered, which doesn`t open my other DRM mobipocket

Also it open fine in the reader that came with calibre which also don't open my other DRM books

Also BoB put a small lock icon on DRM books and it's not there on Lesson in love.

So I assumed DRM-free.

Talking Got it!

Hey Dan - just an update. Got the book once I got home. The main issue was Mobipocket was not on the desktop at work but is at home. Once I had that - was able to get book, put on the Kindle and it looks just fine. Can't wait to start reading. Thanks again for your help as well as the help of others.

Thanks Dan, they must have updated the page from the first time I saw it (won't be the first time).

I do wonder why the epub price went up (it was free also, when first listed, I think, as there were no versions that were not $0.00 then).

Perhaps Samhain has decided that those on Kindle should not be the only ones to get free books (then again, they still haven't updated their web page to show their Aug free books).

I see 2 epub version one DRM-lock costing $4.04 and one DRM-free at $0 a bit lower. Hmm which one should I get
