Christianbook.com Now Offering e-Books for Nook but not Kindle :(
« on: September 08, 2010, 04:45:55 AM »
So sad!  I love getting books and things from CBD!  They have e-books now along with some freebies but you can only get them on Sony and Nook not Kindle.  So sad!

Oh, I totally agree! I love ChristianBook. They get a lot of their revenue from me & my Bible addiction!  :D Hopefully they will get e-books for the Kindle too. The Kindle has to be the biggest e-book device around I would think.

I e-mailed them, and I got the response I thought I would; however, it never hurts to try and show that there is interest. :)  Here is what they said:

"Thank you for taking the time to contact us.  Unfortunately, due to the Kindle proprietary format, eBooks purchased at Christianbook.com cannot currently be transferred to Kindle devices and that's not likely to change, as that's beyond our control. 

Please let us know if you have any further questions.  We look forward to our next opportunity to serve you."

I guess it's a good thing I got a nook yesterday.

Wow, you did?  You got the K3 too, didn't you?  Hubby has a Nook but I am not sure I like it and it's heavier.  Maybe I need to load up his Nook with my favorite books. LOL!

I did. Best Buy has a deal where you get a $25 BN Gift card with it, so basically brought the WiFi down to $125. And yes, I have the K3 too. I got the nook for Library books and all the B&N classics I've been getting all summer.
