Hello, I'm Heidi and I'm a bookaholic. Which means I have a very long wishlist of books for my ebook devices. Much of that list has been honored by publishers releasing backlists but there are some major authors missing on my list. One of them is Robin McKinley. Yes, I own her oeuvre in paper but I want it in the much more portable ebook edition. These days I don't feel relaxed unless I have a 1,000+ books at my fingertips at any given moment.
So imagine my glee when I saw that much of McKinley's backlist will finally be available in ebook for my rereading convenience near or far and to share with the nieces who get to read books on my account. One niece is at the perfect McKinley reading age and I really wanted those books for her this past year but now is just fine, too.
So the following titles will be released to ebook format on 11/18/14 in the US. And there was much rejoicing! For some odd reason, The Blue Sword is missing from the releases list. I don't know why. Hari needs to be digitized, too. But I won't beg too much since I am getting these now. Well, I won't beg too much.
The Hero and the Crown (no fairy tales but an important book of my youth)
Sunshine (Beauty and the Beast)
The Outlaws of Sherwood (Robin Hood)
Rose Daughter (Beauty and the Beast)
The Door in the Hedge: and Other Stories (My first exposure to Twelve Dancing Princesses)
