  1. We’ll miss you in QC. Looking forward to finishing WWW. I just returned a copy of Starplex – your only novel I hadn’t read – to the library today. It’s seen better days, it was disintegrating in my hands as I turned the pages!

  2. I’m a huge fan and was eagerly waiting the release of Wonder. However, I’m very sad now to find that I cannot purchase a copy for my Kindle because I’m Canadian. I love my Kindle and have read that you are also a fan so it’s hard for me to understand why the Kobo version is the only one available to Canadians.

    I am certainly NOT going to buy a Kobo just to read your book because I think the Kindle is the best ereader out there. I have considered getting a hard copy but I am very addicted to my Kindle and don’t want to experience Wonder in any other format.

    Will Wonder be availabe for the Kindle any time soon? When I read Wake and Watch, I immersed myself in them and cannot wait to have the same (almost) all consuming experience with Wonder.

    Thanks for your time. You rock!!!!

  3. Just wanted to tell you, that I’ve enjoyed Wonder very much :) It’s about time there’s more sci-fi with optimistic vibe to it. Though epilogue made me a little sad, that the future is not yet perfect :)

  4. WONDER is available for the Kindle in Canada now. Sorry for the delay. (If you’re shopping ON your Kindle, select “Other Editions” from the page that comes up for the audiobook, and you’ll see the ebook.)
