Here are my top 5 Books available at BookOffers

My Top 1 books is written by Stephenie Meyer.
Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is written by Stieg Larsson
The Girl Who Played is written Stieg Larsson
Dukan Diet is written Pierre Dukan
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest is written Stieg Larsson

We already experience how twilight gross into cinema.No wonder if Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer could be famous also and place it on a big screen.

Yes it is; I've got it in mobi format. It's so long since I've read mobi format books that I can't remember where I got it from.

Have you tried Inkmesh?

What does this have to do with books that aren't available as ebooks?

I thought of another one: The Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee. Tragic love story of spoiled rich girl and a robot. Don't snicker - it's great. I can't find my copy anymore and would love to read it in ebook format.

I'm a big fan of Cynthia Ozick and Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen), and I've been waiting for a while now for their works to make it to e-format.

(from Ozick)
The Puttermesser Papers
The Cannibal Galaxy
The Pagan Rabbi and Other Stories

(from Dinesen)
Seven Gothic Tales
Anecdotes of Destiny

I have a feeling these will become home scanning projects if I ever want to shift them to a digital device.

Your Dinesen recommendation reminds me of another I'd love to read digitally: West With the Night by Beryl Markham. Beautifully written memoir of a aviatrix in Africa. There's some controversy over whether she actually experienced some of her memoir personally, but nevertheless it's a gorgeously written book.

I would agree with To Kill a Mockingbird and Harry Potter books. Almost sold my ereader in anger when I discovered they weren't available. Gimme a break.

Oh, man, how do I pick only five?

Venus Boy, by Lee Sutton.
Here Is Your War, by Ernie Pyle
The Exile Waiting, by Vonda McIntyre (there is some hope for this one)
The Overloaded Ark, by Gerald Durrell
Snakes: The Keeper and the Kept, by Carl Kauffeld

I guess that shows I have pretty eclectic taste in books!

There are probably hundreds of books (many of them long out of copyright) that I'd like as ebooks, and hundreds more that are available, but only DRM-restricted, and I will not buy a DRM-restricted book in principle.

Plus there are whole series I'd love to have as ebooks, but I'm not about to pay for them again, having already bought them as pbooks, and certainly not at twice the price I've already paid for the pbook, and DRM-locked besides.

What I'd really like to see some publishers do is run a trade-in system, where they (perhaps working in conjunction with large chain bookstores) would allow readers to exchange their pbooks for the corresponding ebooks for a nominal fee, then indelibly mark the books (punch holes, maybe?) so they couldn't be traded in again, and donate them to charity programs, libraries, schools, military libraries, or wherever else they'd do some good. Something like that would promote ebooks, promote reading, promote their authors, produce a small amount of revenue, and get them advertising and goodwill they couldn't buy at any cost. Plus it would make my library a whole lot less of a threat to the floor joists.

People above me have mentioned several books I would have put on my list (Milagro Beanfield War- the entire New Mexico trilogy for that matter; John Crowley's Little Big). Here are my five to add to the list:

The Gormenghast Trilogy - Mervyn Peake
Forever Amber - Kathleen Windsor
Peter the Great - Robert K. Massie
The Flashman Papers - George MacDonald Fraser (13 or so books I believe)
Desiree - Anna Marie Selenko

- the Harry Potter series, even though I do have them in hardback.
- Silence of the Lambs
- How to Win Friends and Influence People (Dale Carnegie)
- Emotional Intelligence (Daniel Goleman)
- The Ivy Tree (Mary Stewart)

Plus many more. I put the paper versions of the books I'm waiting for on my Amazon wish list, and I keep checking back.

Interestingly enough these three are available at Amazon, but not for US customers.
