Re: Dragon bone chair for kindle

Hey Youngray! Welcome! :)

Is there a reason you can't get the US Kindle version? I don't know, since I don't own a Kindle, but I've been able to shop on Amazon.co.uk for paper books, even though I'm in the US. Not sure how it works for e-books.

Re: Dragon bone chair for kindle

US amazon won't let me download book cos it says I am in the UK and it's not copyrighted for the UK. Guess the publishers need to get it sorted for UK. Soon I hope

That's what I was afraid of. I hope you'll be able to purchase it soon. Good luck!

Re: Dragon bone chair for kindle

It used to be possible to switch country settings for the kindle. I did that once, and then switched settings back to my "regular" setting. However, my credit card was charged for "international fees". But i think these days they demand you have an US billing address. I gave them by brother´s, I think:-)

But that was two or three years ago, I don´t know if that is still possible at all!

But with new Osten Ard books coming up, i am sure UK e-books cannot be long in coming your way.

Re: Dragon bone chair for kindle

When I was in Hong Kong last year, I downloaded a bunch of books to my kindle using my US Amazon account and was not charged any additional fees. 

Perhaps the UK publisher owns the ebook rights but simply have not made them available in e-format?
