Purchasing Groombridge Log?
« on: November 25, 2016, 08:49:34 am »

Hi, I'd like to purchase the Groombridge Log ebook by Tiberium, but neither the Australian Amazon nor the Australian Kobo store will sell it to me. And you can't buy ebooks from the US Amazon or Kobo stores from Australia without using a VPN and making a bogus US account.

What other stores is it available at, that I might be able to purchase it for my eReader? I really want to support Tiberium, rather than just reading the free version.

Thanks for any help you can give!

So I looked around, and couldn't find any way to purchase it in Australia. So I made a US Amazon account that I decided I would feed solely through gift cards purchased with my Aussie account. Not ideal, but could work. Excited, I went to the US Kindle store, typed in Groombridge Log, and - it's not available for sale anymore?

Was it pulled for some reason, or is Amazon just screwing with me?

Gargh, at this point I'm wondering if the best option would be to buy a physical copy, take a photo and send it to Tiberium, abs ask if I can pretty please have a copy of the eBook too.

Of course, that would have to wait until after Christmas, probably. I can find the money for the eBook relatively easily, but finding the thirty-something $US - akin to about $50AU, thanks to the exchange rate - would be a bit harder.

Groombridge Log is still available in Amazon. If you can't see it there, it must be a regional issue of some sort that is outside my control.

Even here in Finland the book can be ordered from most online book stores.

One major store is also the iBook Store.

Some israeli people have had the same issue and they have been able to buy it from http://www.bookdepository.com/

One possibility would be to buy it directly from the publisher's online store: http://www.bod.fi/kirja/tommi-salminen/groombridge-log/9789523186804.html
Although, I don't know if an English version of that page exists.

Let me know if none of these work for you.

No English site for BOD (books on demand).

The German site at least does not find any book written by an Author "salminen", nor a book named "groombridge".

Weirdly enough, even the ISBN pulled from the finnish site ( ISBN 978-952-318-680-4 ) does not deliver a result on the German site of BOD. It just shows a long list of other books, and ALL of them are in German.


http://bod.com gives you access to their different sites: Germany, Switzerland, France, Danmark, Finland, Sweden. No English country in that list.
