Harlequin, the big romance publisher, is changing the way they supply ebooks bought directly on their web site. It will no longer be possible to download copies of your ebooks, you will only be able to access them through web browsers and the supplied app.

See their announcement on their website



This does mean that you will not be able to download books from the Harlequin web site to Adobe Digital Editions. (Edit: Confirmed with Harlequin tech support.)

So if you want your own back-ups of your ebooks, make sure you download them before the 12th. That's only two weeks away!

Thanks to septentrion for the news.
Thanks...I guess I'll be using the last of my Rewards points before the 12th to be on the safe side

They replied to my email that I was locked out and told me the limit was three books for the points-to-coupon usage, but never unlocked my account.

Oh well. It's not like I'll run out of books to read in this lifetime. I still haven't read a lot of my 2011 haul!

I'd email them back and demand they unlock your account. You have to be direct with them. Do two at a time and you should be okay.

It was unlocked when I got home from work today. I'm spreading out my purchases, not sure if I want to tempt fate with a third purchase even though I was told that's the limit!

The 'points lockout' is only for redeeming the points, you can only redeem three times in - they say - three days, but it often cuts back in after two days.

Once you've redeemed the points i.e. received the voucher codes, you can use as many of those as you like, I used ten yesterday, - all the December releases I was interested in buying - which has just finished off my rewards points.

I'm not intending to buy another device to read on, but as someone said earlier, it will be interesting to see if we can buy using the app, then try to fix the file for use on regular e-ink readers.

I'd say this is unlikely but that is not to say it is not worth a try. The most likely scenario is that downloads to the apps will incorporate some form of drm encryption which has not been reverse engineered. It is unlikely that anyone will bother working on it, given that the books will still be available from other sources and the demand for drm removal relatively low.

Question. I stopped buying from Harlequin back when they still had LIT. Is there any benefit in re-downloading all the books I've previously downloaded as LIT (and converted to EPUB with Calibre) in Adobe EPUB?

They no longer have lit, so if an available title redownloaded it will be in epub only but most titles I bought in lit are no longer there.

The only benefit would be the formatting would be original. I'd rather have originals in epub than a converted copy but that's just me.

It's just possible that newer downloads would have some typo/formatting fixes in them.

That would be because they no longer have them.

Under Torstar Harlequin would routinely revert rights to most backlist titles upon request after the initial print run sold out. Most of those older titles have been reissued by the authors.

Thanks. I never bothered setting up ADE again after the Adobe hack years ago (been buying from Amazon or Kobo). Doesn't seem worth the effort considering I don't have any glaring complaints with the Calibre-converted epubs.
