Now what's wrong with CONNCT..can buy books

I already purchased six books a while ago at the CONNECT site after registering my Reader.

Now when I go back to that site and pick some books I want to buy, There is no tab or button anywhere on the screen to buy the thing. What am I missing?

At the CONNECT opening page, there is no place to log on, so that may be the problem. How can I fix that? The site I am going to is http://ebooks.connect.com/. I can search and find a book I want, but no way to buy it. I do have my Reader connected.

As good as Sony products are, they have the most exasperating support and websites I've ever seen.

I don't think Sony allows you to buy through their web site. You need to use the connect software to purchase.

It would be nice to buy directly from the web site...

Oh, for cryin' out loud, stupid me! Having only done that once (to get my $50 credit), completely forgot. As I bookmarked the site, just seemed logical to go there and buy it.

As you CAN find books, agree it would be nice if you could get 'em there too.

Anyway, thanks flumbo for the quick response.
