I was going to write a long post on why they are very poor compared to the US sites, but I’m going to make it sweet and short.
UK ebook retail sites = over priced, poor choice of genre books, and did I mention over priced?
With the US now implementing geographical restrictions, I’m getting frustrated with ebooks on the whole. I love my Sony Reader, but I’ve been buying a lot more paperbacks lately because they are not available or are inaccessible to me.
But, these sites I find to be pretty much a shining beacon:
Harlequin Ebookstore World Digital rights-no geographical restrictions
Samhain Publishing World Digital rights- no geographical restrictions
Whsmith Ebookshop Quite cheap compared to other UK sites.
And, here are some sites that offer free ebooks, legally:

What an awesome post! I'm not an ebook fan myself, but I can see this would be really useful to those who do! I'll tweet about it 🙂

Alas for restricting the interwebs…
Thank you so much Jo, for the twitter and the blog award. I've popped over and commented.:D
Julie, the whole not being able to get the ebooks makes me want to yell very loudly. I shall refrain myself from doing so. Though, it's mighty tempting- especially when I receive offers via email from these sites.
I am a ebook fan – but i totally agree, with you, it's getting crazy to find the books you want without a ton load of red tape…
Thanks for the site recommendation..
