Books lost in upgrade

I was wondering if anyone knew whether the books that didn't make the translation from lrf to epub on the sony store will come back in a few weeks or if it's on limbo. I recently bought the first book of the Night Watch series. I just finished so I cant to read the next one (Day Watch) but it is no longer available on epub. It's still on my cart and hear if i buy it they'll take my money but no book. Anyone knows?

If not, anyone knows where I can legally buy the rest of the books to work on the sony reader? I know ebooks.com doesn't have it but that's about the last one I know. Thanks!

No they aren't. I still have 4 books (20% as before) which aren't downloadable.

Oh sorry. I meant MY books. I'm selfish like that . At least that should give you some hope that they are working on moving them all little by little.

Grrrrr - my books will be the last ones. One is a Linux book - perhaps they have problems with the formatting. And Quicksilver from Neal Stephenson - how could they forget the master of science fiction - perhaps I should drop him a line that HIS books are violated.

I'm wondering if the formatting isn't doable with an automated script. In that case it's only a matter of computer power.
