Paizo Products for Kindle?

Any chance we will see this eventually?

Our Pathfinder Tales novels are available on Kindle. But the Kindle and ePub formats were designed primarily for text-heavy books, and just aren't ideal for books with heavy graphic design elements like our gaming books. For these types of books, the PDF format remains unmatched.

So the best way to view our gaming books on your portable device is to find a good PDF viewer for your device, and purchase our PDFs.

I did not know that. I have gotten a couple of paperback copies of Pathfinder Tales novels as a door prize at cons, and while I enjoyed them, I just don't buy paperbacks any more and the pain of getting a PDF to display properly on the kindle has stopped me from going for the e-versions.

If they are on the kindle store, I am much more likely to read them.

Thanks!

Wait, they are? When did that happen? I'm sure I asked about that a while back and was told that they weren't.

Kindle support for Pathfinder Tales was just announced in October (you can check this blog post for details).

Thanks. Marvel, for example, have comics available in Kindle format. They don't allow the highlighting that people often prefer when reading a Kindle book. But even making them available in Kindle format in a manner similar to Marvel comics would be nice. Also, might it be possible to offer just the text as Kindle document? As long as users understand they wouldn't get the great presentation of the layout of the printed books as a sacrifice to get full Kindle functionality with Pathfinder book text then I think that would be ok. I'd love to have the ability to access my Pathfinder books on my Kindle and be able to highlight and mark notes using Kindle functionality. Perhaps you can just make the Kindle file available on Paizo.com if a person purchases a book on Paizo. That'd also incentivize people to purchase Pathfinder books on Paizo.com rather than amazon.com.
