I thought about this the other day when I noticed Linda Howard was releasing some of her older books on Amazon Kindle.  BUT..not the 3 that I want.  I want All the Queens Men, Mr. Perfect and Open Season.  Also, I'd like to have Judith McNaught's Paradise and Perfect. 

Are you waiting for any particular book/books to be released as an ebook?

Thats funny Margaret. When i clicked on the thread the first one on my mind was LH's Open Season. lolol. For the longest time ive been clicking on the 'i'd like to read this on Kindle' button. lol. I did just pick it up at a FOL sale for a quarter though, so that makes me feel better. lol

Yep Diana Gabaldon's are available as ebooks.

I am so thrilled that Linda Howard is rereleasing some of her older books in ebook form.  Adding to those you mentioned I would like Now You See Her in ebook form.

Now if Jayne Ann Krentz would release some of her back titles too, life would be great.  Also I would like to collect the whole Draycott Abbey series from Christina Skye.

there's a lot of JAK's I'd like plus the 3 Linda howard titles mentioned - but I want cheaper! I don't see that  happening though.

Did everyone notice that when Barnes and Noble changed their website you can no longer click on a button that says tell the publisher you would like this in ebook form?  I liked that button I wish they would bring it back.

Cheaper might be happening too, Amazon is testing out a cheaper books promotion, which B&N generally matches, and it's been hugely successful on me, at least! I am actually buying a lot of ebooks, which I didn't before.

One of my favorite books of all time is The Nun's Story by Kathryn Hulme (later made into a movie starring Audrey Hepburn).  I would love to have it as an Ebook, but from what I read, it will probably never happen.  Kathryn Hume worked in refugee camps after World War 2 where she met Marie Habets, the former nun who became her life partner and the inspiration for the novel.  When Hulme died she left the rights to The Nun's Story jointly to Habets and six nuns, who cannot be traced.  So there is no way to secure the rights to the book for reissue or an Ebook.

An oldie, but a goodie:  Christy by Catherine Marshall.  One of my favorite gentle romances.
