5-for-1 Sale: Samples of Kindle format?

Hi guys,

Obviously this is my first post here, so hello. :slight_smile:

I have a question. The 5-for-1 sale mentions that it includes the Kindle format for all of the books included. However, if you download the free sample, it is just a .pdf sample, which is not properly formatted for a Kindle.

I assume the Kindle version is more appropriately formatted (specifically, it needs bigger text), but I would hate to buy only to find out that the Kindle versions are just direct ports of the .pdfs.

Are there any samples of ANY of the books for the Kindle format? I would just like to see how you guys format the Kindle versions before I make any purchase decisions.


It may be worth sending an email to SitePoint support, we don’t have any control over the book side of things, but they’ll be able to help you out :slight_smile:

Awesome, I will do just that. Thanks a million for the quick reply!:slight_smile:

I can actually answer that. No, we don’t have samples of the mobile formats but yes, they are correctly formatted for the appropriate devices.

We do have a 30 day money back guarantee should you ever be unhappy with any of our books. :slight_smile:

Yeah, that was the general consensus I got from email support, too, although he did not mention the guarantee–seems like a pretty good selling point.

My main concern was just whether they books had been appropriately re-formatted for the devices. It’s good to hear that they have, and I will probably have to shell out for the sale.

Thanks for jumping in and clarifying!

For the record, I went and ahead and got in on the deal. The Kindle versions do indeed look very nice!

I’m pleased to hear it. :slight_smile:

I am curious–does this apply to individual books from the sale? I know it’s only $6/book, and I am mostly happy with my selections, but I have to say: Simply Javascript is absolutely terrible. So much so that I want to “return” it just out of spite to the author. There is no reason you should get 100 pages into a programming book without writing any actual code…

So what’s the policy on electronic returns?

Yup, it does apply to individual books. Email book support and Garrett will sort it out.
