With the growing number of people communicating via hand-held computers, a.k.a. smart phones, the time to make the new translation available in the Kindle format has come. I started converting Book One back when Kindle titles being offered were approaching the number 2,000. Because I only dabble in IT due to necessity and was still working on the rest of the translation I had a very limited amount of time and patience to devote to learning how to produce a Kindle version. The several attempts I made produced entirely unsatisfactory results. Therefore I abandoned the project for the time being.

During my Christmas vacation I took another look and found the support and tools for people like me have improved. I gave it another try. The result? All three volumes of The Fateful Adventures of the Good Soldier Svejk During The World War are now selling in Kindle store.
