New Penguin Kindle Books are coming online. Agreement reached. Update for Penguin Links

(SEE UPDATE below.)

On the Amazon forums in a thread discussing all the Penguin Kindle books seen coming back online at Amazon, Amazon's customer service team suddenly posted that the new Penguin Kindle books are finally on their way online at the Kindle bookstore.

Here's the message as posted and they'll likely have more later:
"Posted on May 26, 2010 11:50 AM PDT
Amazon Kindle Customer Service says:
(AMAZON OFFICIAL)

Amazon has reached an agreement with Penguin and we are happy to announce that we will  soon be offering their complete selection of digital books on Kindle."
Read the thread for details on the books people have been waiting for and now finding.  Happier Days.

  1. Storm Prey still "not available in US" and yet it's rank #598 in the Kindle Store?

  2. It might be available in Canada and/or the UK ?

    Maybe pre-orders were allowed on this for awhile before talks broke down with Penguin and Amazon.

    I know that people did pre-order some new Penguin-sold books and will have to see those cancelled and do a new order.

    I see the book has an unfair rating due to publisher's pricing.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the blogger.com "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the 'blogger.com' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
