Can someone not in the US check and see if there is an ebook available for Library at Mount Char? I tried to check amazon.co.uk, but couldn't see one. Since I'm outside the region, I sometimes get funky results. I also could not see one from Crown for Cold Silver, but that book was at least priced lower than Library at Mount Char (and I suspect that there is an ebook available).

If the only option is a full price hardcover, I'll disqualify it.

Found the ebook for Library and also for Crown on Amazon UK (and hardcover, no paperbacks yet).
Price difference between the two is about £4.

Voting is now open! Everyone gets 2 votes to start, and I'll likely look to narrow down the field and reduce the number of votes to just one in a few days, so be sure to check back :)

Ooh, The Last Wish is good. I think it'd make a perfect piece for discussion.

Won't vote because I might not read it again (kinda sad When the Heavens Fall didn't make it), but I will be putting my seal of approval on it. As if that actually meant something.... ;)

When the Heaven's Fall wasn't seconded. If you want to seconded it now, I'll put it on the list :)

Oh, didn't catch that. Then most definitely seconded!
