Nah, they check your IP and then you have to show proof of address or your passport.

How the hell do they deny a ebook? Do you have like only an official Kindle? Or like a tablet?

Er, it's blocked however you try to buy it. Web browser or whatever. Like I said, they check your IP and if it's in the wrong region then they block you. You can get your account enabled for a certain region (like currently I'm enabled for Asia/Pacific even though I'm in Japan) but you have show proof of citizenship or residency.

You just need to have a billing address set in a region. That's how I bought Amazon digital wares all this time.

Mine was set to Aus, but during 3 months of buying ebooks, they would send me an email every week or so saying "We notice you are buying an awful lot of ebooks from a location in Japan. Are you sure you don't want to change your region to Japan?". Not if I wanted to keep being able to buy ebooks, hell no. So I ignored the email.

Anyway, after those 3 months they just auto blocked me one day and said by email that I needed to provide proof that I belonged in the Asia/Pacific region. Luckily I could fax my passport to do this because I no longer have any proof of residency in Australia.

Again your billing address.

All my friends and family are in Aus so it wouldn't be any different in this case. To summarise, at least having my account set to Asia Pacific gives me access to most books (with occasional pricing oddities). If my account was stuck set to Japan then I would be pretty screwed. Fortunately I was able to avoid that but still annoying.

Oh I was just wondering if it was a tablet, they have other ebook stores. <shrug>

Doesn't come in up in search results in my region. The direct link there works, but get the blocked message trying to buy like Chris D. Searching from the kindle only brings up the audible edition. Oh well, plenty of other books in the store.

Why would it not available is baffling in this day in age. Digital age is supposed to transcend silly shit like availability in a region. It's not a traveling book salesmen needs to print up books fly over there and try to sale them.

Click and read.

Yeah, prior to the whole eBooks thing I never would have thought that we would get what is basically region coding for books. I mean, I've been buying American published paperbacks from Amazon since the store existed. I guess book publishers are just as big dicks as those in other industries.

I still haven't been able to use my tablet due to a bad application update that screwed up reading on it. So I've been entertaining myself with the Conan the Barbarian comics by Dark Horse. I enjoy that they do their best to adapt them as close as possible to Howard's works. I suppose when I'm done with those, if they don't fix my nook app, I'll wind up reading my collection of Howard/Lovecraft correspondence.

Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing?

Aye. It's a known issue spanning multiple tablets. Did just try it again.

Fail. Gonna see if there's an older version on a forum somewhere.

Best part: The update is called the "Tablet Optimized" update. And it doesn't work on Tablets.

*sigh*
