There are two lessons in the following story.
First, there are a lot of countries I couldn’t find on a map if you held a loaded crossbow to my head, despite listening to They Might be Giants’ Alphabet of Nations about sixteen million times.
Thanks to Brandyllyn, I have a long, long list of them. She was in the UK, and was unable to buy a digital copy of Loretta Chase’s Mr. Impossible for her flight back to the US. Why?
Have a look at the countries where she could have purchased it – in her estimation, it’s “Every Country Ever except the United Kingdom. WTF?”
WTF indeed. Tuvula? Burundi? I confess: I had to look them up.
Let me add my plea to that of many others, and reveal the second lesson in this entry: digital books in English have a market outside English-speaking countries.. and inside English speaking countries, too. It’s a sad, sad thing that it would be easier to find a pirated copy inside the UK than a legitimate digital copy.
Where are you, geographically? Do you have problems finding digital books where you are? What’s your solution?
