I bought the physical copy here in Toronto, but can't seem to locate any option for a kindle purchase for Canadians.
Can anyone else confirm if there is no electronic version for Canada?

Not listed on amazon.ca, but as mentioned upthread you can change your location (temporarily) by entering a new address (adding not replacing your current CA address) and buy it on amazon.co.uk

huskylord, coming to Zaudunyanicon?

Yeah, Canada seems to be SOL regarding an ebook. Most members have figured out a way to finagle an ebook from Amazon.co.uk, .com, or kobo.com.

It was funny.  I called in ahead to ask that they reserve a copy for me just to be on the safe side.  The guy, who to his credit did end up successfully placing the hold for me, had to ask me multiple times what the title of the book was like his brain just couldn't process a novel called "The Unholy Consult."

Lol, I've heard one or two similarly humourous stories from people booking rooms for Zaudunyanicon.

The front desk just isn't able to hear and process that name (good job, Wilshire, confounding people with your brilliance ;)).

You'll make it, Woden. The day will be upon you and suddenly the moment will pass and you can begin your journey through the pages of dead, tattooed trees :).

I got an UK ebook to support the B man and to depend on when I want to search for something in the book to use to defeat Kellhus fans.
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”

Purchased mine via Kobo.

I usually read my books on the phone, the above screenshot is on my PC. I have a portrait monitor for coding  but it also comes in handy for reading.

I had to repurchase the books for my reread last June as I originally had the books up until TWLW on my Kindle, but forgot my login. I had a few years of little to no books read due to going full blown workaholic around 2012.

Somewhat annoyed about the cover of TDTCB being different, but I got that before changing shop regions. Also I have no idea why TJE's cover is all blurry like that.

And yeah, I'm mostly an ebook as it's quicker to get the books as well as an issue with availability in this country.

I finally got my physical copy on the 4th.  I tore that open faster than a child opening Christmas presents.
