Charlotte (charlotte-) | 12 comments Hi all

Anyone found an ebook version of House of Suns available in Canada? Preferably formatted for kindle? It isn't available on the kindle site and the (expensive) version I found can only be downloaded in the US.

And I voted for it! Guess I should have checked availability first!

Charles (nogdog) Well, darn it. I wish authors/publishers/agents/etc. would get this international e-book rights stuff organized. I saw a book I wanted to order the other day, at it wasn't available in the US (apparently only in UK or the EU). :(
Maybe Geoffrey could re-open the poll? ;)

We can. Or we can just switch books altogether to the other one ....

Eric (proggyboog) Well, the vote was 10-9. If there's geographic issues, I say switch. The selection was a tossup for me in any case.

That's my thoughts - one vote isn't that major a difference

message 6: by Charles (new)

Charles (nogdog) I'm totally up for either book, so you can consider my vote switched.

Hell, I voted for Banks, but I was ready to start House of Suns. Maybe there should be a way to pre-qualify selections. I'm not sure I can see what isn't available outside the USA. I need to think about the December science fiction selections I'm picking.

Greg Is this the next one? Cause if it is I'd like to start it.

Sorry everyone. I didn't mean to get confusing. I switched books on the group bookshelf - but maybe I'll maybe I'll set up a quick vote ....

The re-polling ended up with a 1 vote difference in the same direction .... so House of Suns it is ... or both ....

Never fear, I think Against a Dark Background could come back in the December voting for Science Fiction if we don't try to read both for October.

Charles (nogdog) I'm so confused: I already started reading Against a Dark Background. >_<

Charles: I saw that as your currently reading ... our herd of cats style group is pretty evenly split on this month's book. .... If I make a call, I'd tend to go with House this month with the assumption that Dark Background pops up again soon as there's obviously interest ... (unless you come back and say its god-awful)

message 14: by Charles (new)

Charles (nogdog) I just thought "House" was the one not available in Canada, so we were going to do "Dark Background" instead.

Anyway, I just got my shipping notice for I Shall Wear Midnight, so that will be next on my reading list anyway. :-)
