Can I download a prev purchased paper book in e format?

Hello,

 

I just got my nook today, from my husband for our 25th anniversary. So far it is great, down loaded a bunch of PDFs I am reading for my history classes,.

 

One thing I do want to know is: is it possible to have an e-version of a paper-version book I have purchased?

 

Or would I have to buy it over again in the e-format?

 

Thanks

 

Ruth

Unless the publisher is feeling really generous, you have to buy it again. I haven't run across any generous publishers. They all seem rather focused on collecting as much money as possible.

Older books are often available for next to nothing in ebook form.  Newer ones are still pretty expensive.  I've found ebooks for about 20 printed books in my collection that I wanted to re-read and they were dirt cheap.

t project Gutenburg and  looking through all the free books here. Unfortunatley this particular book was published this year. It is a regular book, but one for my course work. 

 

What was said about VHS to DVD make sense though.  I will live. Barely. :smileytongue:  it is a pretty big book.

 

Thanks for all the insight
