It’s true… in an apparent effort to force folks to purchase only from their own iBooks service, some nefarious things are going on. Let’s say you try to order books from the handy Amazon App on your iPhone or iPad, (or even just from amazon.com,) your device will only give you the option of “downloading a sample” or adding it to “a list,” whatever that is. The point is that there’s no option to buy! So strange, and so blatantly unfair to authors.
We have a solution for anyone experiencing this: visit amazon.com on a PC, laptop, or Mac instead of a personal device that supports the app. You should get the regular view that will even include one-click buying if you have an account on Amazon. Good luck, and please help spread the word about this! Happy traveling, Dean & Andie
