Ron, very interested, thank you.

Ron, it may be wiser to use the .epub format. All e-readers can open this file type and is not restricted to just the Kindle e-readers. (I have a B&N Nook)

The kindle format has Digital Rights Management, so I prefer it for my copyrighted works.

I've not been posting much lately, here and on my blog, because I've been working on converting my books to Kindle format. I'm almost done. I have two more books to do: The First Part of the Tribulation (update: this book is now available) and Important Dates in the Lives of Jesus and Mary (which may take several days because of the many footnotes and charts).

If you live outside the U.S. and you are having difficulty obtaining my books in print, you might try ordering a book in Kindle format from Amazon.com. You can read Kindle books on any PC with Windows 7, or Vista, or XP (SP2), and the free Kindle for PC software. You can also download free book samples for each of my books.

The free Kindle sample of my book The Catechism of Catholic Ethics includes the introduction and all of the first four chapters: 1. The Basis for Morality, 2. The Eternal Moral Law, 3. The Three Fonts of Morality [A. Intention, B. Moral Object, C. Circumstances], 4. The Principle of Double Effect. These chapters alone are a good introduction to Catholic moral theology.

Bought "The Secrets of Medj and Garab..." for kindle and it worked like a charm! It was downloaded in less than 10 secs and I'm very excited to read it!

Default wondering what happens if nothing happens again....

good to see the books in various formats for wider use....what I always wonder about speculation is at which point it begins to actually discredit the sweat put into making it....

Good, glad to hear it.

I recommend to everyone, if you can read a kindle book on a Kindle, or on your PC or Mac, at least download the FREE sample of the Catechism of Catholic Ethics. The free sample includes ALL of the following chapters:

Introduction
1. The Basis for Morality
2. The Eternal Moral Law
3. The Three Fonts of Morality
[A. Intention, B. Moral Object, C. Circumstances]
4. The Principle of Double Effect

These chapters function as a good introduction to ethics.
