    I stand corrected. After contacting Amazon/Kindle, I discovered they don't distribute any e-books in those and a few other countries.

    Probably because the savages in those countries lack the sophistication to operate an Ipad or Kindle......

    Or maybe because Amazon does not want to spend the time screening any book that might offend Islamic sensibilities. Amazon also doesn't sell e-books in Cuba and China.

    --That would be about 99% of all documents written since Hammurabi first put his legal codes on stone....

    Amazon also doesn't sell e-books in Cuba and China.
    --That may be for the best. The Chinese authorities would read your book, ban it, and, then, re-write it, pushing it as a bestseller. Perhaps, word for word......The Cubans? I don't think they are over their book BURNING stage, yet.....

    Not at all. That's why I find people from those countries looking for ways to bypass their government's restrictions. The Democrats are jealous as all get out that they can't have that kind of power but they're working on it.
