Sweet :).

A user on Bakkerfans facebook is looking for another way to get the audiobook as apparently audible doesn't have UK rights for the book?

The audiobook (which I bought from Canadian iTunes Store, [it's not up in the UK yet, I checked]) introduces a number of new-to-me pronunciations, which isn't something I expected from someone who narrated the first two books in the series.

Still waiting for the retail HC pre-order to arrive from Chapters... it's apparently arriving on Friday.

Lol - fucking Chapters. The website still lists the book as not available in stores. I'm going to go and do some bookmarking today but real disappointed at Canada's rollout - especially since when WLW came out Penguin at least did their "publishing due diligence" and paid for a whole table space just for WLW (the final volume Penguin had their own edition of before opting just to distribute Overlook... which means no series of covers for Canadians :( ).

Thanks, rhizome. The facebook poster since mentioned they'd gotten around ordering the audiobook in UK.

Finally got a little time to get the eBook and bring it over into Calibre, then merge it with all the other books.

Full series search engaged, just in time for the First Cast.
I am a warrior of ages, Anasurimbor. . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury. -Cet'ingira

So H, is Calibre an App? How does this work? This is something I would love to do, yet I am a complete computer illiterate.
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

Yeah, it can be an App, but I think you have to pay for it there.  I used it on my PC and it's free there.

Message me and I'll get back to you on how you can do it, it's not hard, but tricky.
