Because the publisher didn't make them available.

Amazon can only sell what the publishers provide. If there are books you'd like to have Kindle-ized, write to the publishers and let them know there's money to be made by releasing Kindle editions.

Contact the publishers of those books and let them know that you'd like to see a Kindle version.

Someone has to *create* the electronic version, basically letter by typed letter, and format it for electronic devices. It doesn't happen magically; publishers choose to e-format the books that they think they can SELL the most of.

"and try put the charge and so could get it"

Huh?

Word salad. Try to type complete sentences. Also, this thread is about older books on/not on Kindle.

If your question doesn't have to do with that, then please start a new thread.
