Hi! Very nice!

I searched for it, but I haven't found it on the Kindle Store. Unfortunately it does not ship the paperback to my country. Will it be available on kindle?

I'll ask the publisher. I know the ebook is coming because we talked about it, I just don't know the date.

It's out on Kindle now.

https://www.amazon.com/50-Greatest-S...5186463&sr=8-1

If I check it on my laptop it's $9.99, if I check it on my smartphone, it's $12.69. I don't know why is that. However, it's currently the #1 New Release in the Gambling Table Games category, so that's good.
