Just purchased the ebook version of this book from manning.

However unlike other books that i have bought, this one is available only in PDF. Why? Any chance of an ebook-reader friendly format anytime soon ?

I am quite addicted to my Kindle which doesn't play well with PDF due to the limitations of the format itself.

Re: Why isn't this book available in the mobi format ?
Manning provides ebooks in more formats than just PDF.

"we include all available electronic formats—PDF, ePub or Kindle—at no extra cost."
See http://www.manning.com/about/ebooks.html

Unfortunately, it seems that it's the case only for recent books, and not for LINQ in Action smilie

Bummer. Even worse, the PDF won't even open on the Kindle!

"due to embedded features not yet supported by Kindle". Thankfully Calibre does the job!
