Why don't you download from another source such as Google instead of being a thief?

Ok, so from my quick search it looks as if there is no e-book for that series. So my guess is that the publisher has pulled the e-book and is only offering paperback. That's not on Amazon, you'd need to speak to the publisher.

As for not being able to buy other products, example?

Not being able to get an eBook that you want - not need - is forcing you to steal?!

Your sense of entitlement is astounding to me.

So, you steal which means I have to pay more to make up for what you take - yeah, what a nice person you must be - it's not like you are starving, thirsty, etc. it's a freakin' book.

I guess it's more important that you get what you want than to have ethics & get another book until you can legally get the one you want.

Your parents must be so proud that they raised a thief.

It happens all the time. eBooks get pulled by the author/publisher for whatever reason. Sometimes they become available again and sometimes they don't. Nothing to do with Amazon since Amazon can only sell what the author/publisher offer it to re-sell

The nice thing about eBooks is once you purchase them, you can always re-download from the Amazon servers.

If you purchased them while they were available as eBooks, you will still have them in your archives. You don't lose them if the publisher pulls them from sale, as you have already purchased them. I have a few books in my archives that I cna still access and read, yet they aren't offered for sale anymore.

As for that other book, there is no reason why you couldn't buy it unless your account has been moved to the UK site. Or, the fact that you are in the UK yet using a US account may be causing issues. This is the book on the US store - No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State this is the same book on the UK site - http://www.amazon.co.uk/No-Place-Hide-Snowden-Surveillance-ebook/dp/B00I5A2X8Y/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1404949754&sr=8-1

How nice "This title is not currently available for purchase".

There will be a reason for that. Are you physically in the UK or the US?

Talk to the publisher/author. They are the ONLY ones that can make it available via eBook.

As others have said - it's ONLY a BOOK - not a necessity. It won't harm anyone if it's not available in the eBook format.

No wonder your parents don't give 2 sheets about you - I can't imagine anyone could like someone like you.

So have you contacted customer service at all with this problem?

I'm wondering if this "person" isn't just pulling everyone's legs. There is absolutely nothing in his profile. I know that isn't evidence of anything, but it is usually the common denominator when dealing with trolls out to cause a ruckus.

I'm still waiting for the op to answer my question as to whether they contacted customer service...

yes, it will - if your Country Setting is in the UK, you see a different set of books than if your Country Settings is US

Publishing varies from country to country. Maybe the author, or publishers, have not signed a deal yet which allows anyone to sell the item you want in some places yet. Wait a few weeks, or months, and it may change. The US Rights are a separate thing from the UK Rights, and the Brazilian Rights, etc, and an author has a right to sell each-or not-as he / she chooses. Even when he / she does have deals all over the world, it can take time for Publisher A in Country 1 to get up and running, while Publisher B in Country 2, may get going sooner. Even then, certain countries may-by law-not allow certain things to be sold...things which defame The prophet Muhammad, for example, or which deride North Korea's Clown Boy Emperor. Amazon can't sell what an author does not authorize them to sell, or what a local law says they can't sell. Amazon can't sell what the publisher does not publish. If you have this big a fit over not being able to get an e-book exactly when you want it, do not ever: join the military, go to college, get married, have children, or doing anything else which is REALLY stressful. Doing so would give you an aneurism, or three, and kill you.
