Kindle Version of SFC Models Book Available...

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have a Kindle edition of the SFC models textbook available. However, the ebook edition is a "textbook" version of the book -- effectively the same thing as a PDF with fixed pages. Not all Kindle readers will support this format (particularly older ones). I believe that the Kindle store will not sell you the book if your reader does not support it, but I suggest caution. I just glanced at the book on my iPad, and it looked OK (which is unsurprising, since an iPad is set up to render PDF files).

UPDATE: The formatting looks OK.

Since this edition is a direct representation of the paperback edition, it has features that might be unusual for those who have gotten used to reflowing PDFs, such as blank pages. (Chapters always start on the right-hand page in printed books.)

I am unable to use fixed-format pages for my non-Amazon ebook distributor, and so I cannot use the same trick to distribute outside of Amazon. I am still attempting to find a solution for that.
