B5 eBooks

Does anyone know where I can find the B5 ebooks? I have them all in paperback but I'd like to be able to read them on my ipad. I just can't bring myself to cut them up and scan them, I want to keep the originals intact.

Re: B5 eBooks

None of the B5 novels are in any legal electronic form.

If you're American. No such link for the rest of us. So we have to rely on you people clicking it!

But yeah, I wish they did, too (and without geographical restrictions, please).

I've got all the novels but even so - I rarely read paper books any more, as the Kindle (or even my older Sony) is just so much more comfortable to hold, so if I wanted to re-read any of them, I'd love to have them as ebooks instead.

I guess there's just not enough perceived market for them, as presumably they'd need to go the scanning-OCR-proofreading way for the B5 books (more costly than using existing files), plus negotiate new contracts with all the authors. But still, one can hope and wish.

Well, since you're in the USA, you CAN vote for Kindle versions of the B5 books on amazon.com.

Re: B5 eBooks

OK, I did it. Doubt it will do any good though but it only took a few minutes to click them all.
