There's definitely a gap in the market for this one... spent the whole of last night searching. Amazon.com and kalahari.net have some, and a maybe a handful of Afrikaans authors. And a couple of publishing companies. But other than that, very little out there for Afrikaans readers (other than religious material).

 

Were there any particular topics/genre you were after, Ronel?

 

Regards,

Liz

Hi Liz

 

Thank you so much for replying. I also did an extensive search, with no success. :cry:

 

Bought my mom a Kindle and she loves Afrikaans novels, now I am unable to find more than a few titles. Would have loved to pre-load the kindle with hundreds of books before giving it to her.

 

Kind regards

One search generated 273 Afrikaans Kindle ebooks, have pm'd the link to you (might dent the budget somewhat, but they're there).

 

Also, there is a seemingly natty lil' prog that you can download free of charge that apparently converts any ebook to the Kindle format... calibre - E-book management

(reference to this, and other interesting info, found at Hard Spear: Bridging the Kindle Digital Divide in South Africa – My third Afrikaans Post)

 

Hope this helps!

And for English readers (or should your mom want to give them a go) a good number of royalty free classics as well as stories donated by authors, found here
