Coders at Work on Kindle?

A number of people have emailed me to ask whether Coders at Work will be available on the Kindle. Short answer: Yes.

Longer answer: for reasons I don’t really understand, it may be a while. My publisher has, they assure me, sent the necessary files to Amazon and now Amazon has to do something – not clear to me what – before the Kindle edition is actually available. However that something can apparently take months. My editor was optimistic that Coders was selling well enough that it might be more like one month than the six months that some titles have spent in the Amazon queue but there’s no way to know.

I really don’t understand what Amazon could be possibly doing that could take 1/4 the time it took me to actually write the book but there it is. If you’re eager to get Coders on your Kindle your best bet is, I guess, to click the “I’d like to read this book on Kindle” link on the Amazon Coders at Work page. Or maybe email Amazon directly since the “I’d like to read this book on my Kindle” is ostensibly for letting the publisher know you want it and the publisher, in this case, is already is happy to oblige.
