I am getting sick and tired of finding every book that I want to read not being available on Kindle. Amazon will blame the publishers and the publishers blame Amazon. However, we are the customers that believe it or not make the whole damn thing work. So get real both or you. Unless the middlemen perform a valid role their days are numbered as the writer would love to be paid more and the reader is prepared to pay.
Really wanted this book...will it ever be available. I thought this kindle was going to be godsend, I read a lot and travel a lot....I was sooooo happy.....but this is the 3rd book I've wanted and it's not available
Cynthia -- Do a search in books for the title. Note that the listing shows a kindle version available. Click thereon -- and....there it is in England, with the notation that the kindle version is not available in the US. So they cannot claim that it has something to do with not being formatted for kindle yet -- it exists, they just don't want us to have it.
This is the kind of thing that will kill the Kindle - and reduce Amazon's ebook sales. The iPad is out now and even though Amazon has a Kindle application for it, the iPad works better with the it's built-in book reader than it does with the Kindle app.
If publishers feel that they will improve sales by waiting for hardcover sales to build before making an e-book version of their titles available they are in error. Those of us who love e-books will not buy the hardcover when an e-book version is not available. And, when the e-book version finally is released the buzz may well have subsided and we'll be on to something else. We may well end up not buying the book at all. The e-books don't all have to sell for $9.99. The publishers and author deserve a fair return (hardcover price less printing and distribution costs). But, waiting may get them nothing. BTW, everyone, this is not Kindle's fault. There are other e-book sellers and they are not selling The Big Short in the U.S. market either.
I'm also looking for "The Big Short" and am very disappointed that it is not available in the USA. By the same token, I just read a review of the brand new "The War Lovers" in the New York Times today and immediately found it on my Kindle. Something is wrong here.
