Help on Ebooks
« on: October 7, 2006, 03:00 PM »
Is there a means to save ebooks after you buy them? 

I pretty much hate ebooks, but would like to read the stories that are ONLY available on them. I bought the Darth Maul ebook years ago but couldn't get into reading a whole book while sitting at the computer.  However, I then had to reformat my computer and there was no method to save the ebook, I think I was using the MS reader program.   The ebook downloads INTO the reader and there was no way to save the actual file. Thus, I lost my ebook.

I was looking at the Adobe reader and it sounds like you can actually save the individual books so reformating won't cause you to lose them.

Anyone know if this is true? I'd rather not buy the Adobe version books just to find it is like the MS version.

Thanks

I too would like to know this. There are quite a few books I would love to read this way.

I just found out that there was a Boba Fett Ebook set during the NJO sereis. Can anyone help us out?

Better yet, is there any way to get these in a printed form?

Most of them have been republished in paperback rereleases of the hardcover novels that they accompany.

The Hive was reprinted in The Cestus Deception.
A Forest Apart was reprinted in Tatooine Ghost.
Darth Maul: Saboteur in Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter.
Fool's Bargain in Survivor's Quest
Recovery in Star by Star
Ylesia in The Joiner King (also available as free pdf here)
A Practical Man has not yet been reprinted, but it will probably show up in one of the LOTF paperback editions
