A Confederacy of Dunces Kindle Edition Finally!

Sony Reader Store too. I don't know if the ebook editions were published yesterday or as long as a month or more ago, but I do know I have been clicking on that Amazon link to publishers for a long, long time. I just noticed now.

This Pulitzer Prize winner is one of my all time favorite reads, and I wanted to share the good news. If you aren't familiar with it, read some of the almost 1000 reviews...

Thanks. I looked for this several times awhile back. I didn't realize it was a Pulitzer Prize winner but it's one of my all time favorites, too.

The bad news is that it's a TOPAZ file. I can't get it onto my jetBook.

Can you get it from Sony and strip the DRM? I can't remember what formats the jetbook takes.

I don't know. It took me considerable time and effort to learn how to DDRM the Amazon files. I actually have a pdf I found online that I converted to epub. It reads fine.

Thanks hidari, I'll check them out.

One of my all-time favorites! It's one of those books that I wish I never read, so that I could experience reading it again for the first time.
